Best Burrito Fillings
Brian recommends that you always start with a rice and bean base. This is the core of any burrito, and will ensure the dish fills you up. Next up is the protein of your choice, or none at all. This is where you can give the burrito some real personality. Brian recommends not leaving the burrito assembly line without some grilled bell peppers. They add a much needed veggie situation to lots of burrito line ups, plus provide an unparalleled texture. You should also avoid having too much “liquid” ingredients. Refried beans, guac, sour cream, and queso will make your burrito drip all over the place. Play it safe and minimize these types of fillings to just two per burrito.
