  • In a sealable plastic bag, add all the ingredients for the marinade and the skirt steak.
  • Seal the plastic bag.
  • Mix well to coat the meat.
  • Marinate for a minimum of 4 hours.
  • Overnight is best.
  • Grill meat to desired doneness.
  • 6-8 minutes on each side for medium-rare.
  • Let rest for 10 minutes before slicing.
  • Slice the meat as thinly as possible.
  • Bake french fries as per package instructions.
  • Warm up the tortillas.
  • To the center of the tortilla:
  • Add a layer of refried beans.
  • Top with a healthy portion of the sliced grilled meat, french fries, sour cream, guacamole, salsa, and cheese.
  • Roll up the burrito.
  • Slice in half.
  • Serve with extra salsa or guacamole.
  • Enjoy!



If you can't find a burrito-sized tortilla, use a regular tortilla and add less of the fillings.
Use your best judgement when adding the filling. If you add too much, you will have a hard time rolling up the burrito.
