This was one of my favorite meals while in Cozumel, I was so proud of it 🙂  The Avocado Salsa Verde is exploding with flavor and it will instantly turn any burrito into a masterpiece.  I typically use chicken for this combo, but feel free to sub out your preferred protein.




This is one of my favorites on the list!   Pico de Gallo works great when paired with eggs and potatoes — add in some beans and breakfast is served.  Or dinner 🙂  I come back to this one on a regular basis, it’s perfect for lazy weekend mornings.

Here’s another fast-n-easy meal I save for rushed weeknights:  Quick Chicken Burrito with Chipotle Crema.

This is a simple breakfast burrito combo made all the better by a quick homemade Salsa.  It’s a 3 ingredient Salsa — tomatillos, chipotles, garlic — and it’s delicious!


It would be easy to give all the credit to the chorizo in these epic breakfast burritos. But it's the tomatillo salsa that really amps them up. So good! mexicanplease.com


If you prefer your burritos to be served wet then consider dousing them in this Creamy Poblano Sauce — it’s loaded with that rich, roasted Poblano flavor.  I used chicken for this batch but you could easily turn this into a vegetarian meal. 


Think of this as the ultimate comfort food. A chicken guacamole burrito swimming in a creamy, goopy poblano sauce with otherworldly flavor. Don't forget to roast the poblano peppers. So good! mexicanplease.com
