This shredded beef burrito is filled with super juicy and tender BBQ beef brisket, beans, rice, avocado and lettuce. Perfect comfort food that is easy to make and always a winner. Gluten-free & dairy-free.



1 cup of pulled BBQ beef brisket

1/2 cup of black beans

1/3 cup of romaine lettuce diced

1/2 cup of white rice boiled or steamed

1/2 smashed avo with lime juice and salt

4-5 jalapenos peppers chopped

Fresh coriander chopped

2 big corn tortillas or GF tortilla of choice

OPTIONAL to add some spicy sauce of choice

NOTE! The amount of ingredients you can fit in the burrito will depend on the size of the tortilla you use.


  1. If you don't have the pulled beef already made, check this post about how to make it. If you already have it, then you only need to follow a few super simple steps!

  2. Prepare all the ingredients: Boil or steam the rice. You might want to check this post about how to make steam rice (don't add the star anise though!). Chop the lettuce and coriander, and smash the avo with a bit of lime juice and salt. Heat up the beef (either in the microwave or in a pan on medium-high heat on the stove top).

  3. Make the burrito: Lay foil on a flat surface and add the tortilla on top. Add all the ingredients on top, and roll the burrito. Wrap it in foil and heat it up either in a sandwich press or in the stove.

  4. How to wrap a burrito: This can be challenging, let's be honest! But if you follow the steps on the photos below, you will be sweet. Wrap the sides towards the middle. Then wrap the bottom towards the middle. Using your fingers, bring all the filling towards the middle, and fold the tortilla completely.


Store the leftover beef in an airtight container in the fridge. If the beef is just made, it can last up to 5-7 days in the fridge, or 3 months in the freezer.

Store the veggies, rice and beans in airtight containers, or in bowls covered with wax paper or compostable plastic wrap. Consume within 3 days.

Don't overload the burrito, otherwise it might be super difficult to wrap it properly. I know it can be tempting, but trust me here, unless you want to end up with a messy burrito.

Wrap the burrito in foil, making it way less messy to eat, as the shredded beef can release a lot of juice.
