How to Make a Dan-O's Birria Burrito

A Mouthwatering Birria Burrito

This Birria Burrito recipe is sure to have your mouth watering. All of the different flavors blend together to make this wonderful Mexican-inspired meal. This may take a little more time than usual but in the end, it’s completely worth it.

You have to try this rich and flavorful birria burrito meal. The beef is so incredibly tender, it just melts in your mouth. One of my favorite parts is by adding those little finishing touches like frying the shell at the end to add that extra crunchy bite.

Be Prepared For Some Heat

You have to be prepared to take on a little heat with this birria burrito, however. It definitely packs a bit of a punch. If you need some help with the heat you could also get yourself an extra side of sour cream and dip the burrito in it before going for the dipping sauce. No matter what way you decide to each this giant birria burrito, I’m certain you are going to love it. Give this recipe a try!
