  • In a large saucepan heat oil over medium-high heat. Add the beef mixture, half at a time. Cook about 5 minutes or until beef is browned, stirring occasionally. Return all beef to the pan. Add the water. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered 2 1/4 to 2 1/2 hours or until beef is fork tender.

  • Transfer beef to a bowl. Shred beef using two forks. Add some of the cooking liquid if needed, to moisten the meat. Keep warm.

  • Lay tortillas on a flat work surface. Spoon Cilantro-Lime Rice along the bottom one-third of the tortillas. Top with beef and the remaining ingredients. Fold bottoms of tortillas over filling. Fold in sides. Roll up tortillas tightly. Cut burritos in half.

*Tip

Chile peppers contain oils that can irritate your skin and eyes. Wear plastic or rubber gloves when working with them.
