Creating Cooking Memories: Try This Mexican Dish With Your Family!

Sunday evenings are generally boring because it comes with the realisation that Monday is coming and your weekend is over. But our King Khan says, Har Pal Yahan, Jee Bhar Jiyo, Jo Hain Samaa, Kal Ho Na Ho! So, why can’t we have fun on Sunday evenings? Here is an idea, try this Mexican dish, involve your kids, and you all together can make this happy meal that will vanish your Monday blues. We suggest this because Mexican and Indian cuisine uses the same spices and herbs. Below we have a recipe for the Mexican dish ‘Enchilada Style Burritos’. 

Enchilada Style Burritos are a quick and easy meal that consists of piping hot tortillas (Maida Rotis) stuffed with cheese, enchilada sauce, beans, and rice and served with delectable sides. Now, let’s jump into the recipe part.

Cuisine: Mexican

Course: Entree, Main course

Prep Time: 1 hour (approx.)

Calories: 400-550 cal (approx.)


  • ½ tablespoon Butter
  • ½ Onion chopped
  • 1 ½ cups Black beans (small rajma soaked and boiled)
  • ½ teaspoon Red chile powder
  • Salt (to taste)
  • 1 cup Mexican cheese blend (cheddar cheese)
  • 1 cup Enchilada sauce (store-bought)
  • 2 Tortillas (Homemade or store-bought)
For the rice
  • ¾ cup Raw rice
  • 1 Green chile / Jalapeno chopped
  • 2 tablespoon Coriander leaves chopped
  • 1 tablespoon Butter
  • 2 teaspoon Lemon juice


Step 1
  • Make the tortilla dough and keep it aside for 30 minutes. Tortillas from the store can also be used.
  • Melt butter or oil in a pan. Sauté the raw rice for 3 to 4 minutes on medium heat or until it develops some colour. This step will give the cooked rice a nutty flavour.
  • Mix in the green chillies and cilantro. 
  • Blend in the lemon juice. Set this aside for now.
Step 2
  • Meanwhile, heat ½ tablespoon butter or oil in a skillet. Sauté the Onion with a pinch of salt until it becomes translucent.
  • Combine the black beans and red chilli powder in a mixing bowl. Drizzle with water and cook for 2-3 minutes.
Step 3
  • Preheat the oven to 175 degrees Celcius and then set it on broil mode.
Step 4
  • Make two equal parts of the tortilla dough. Roll it to the size of your nonstick pan / Tava / griddle with a rolling pin. When using store-bought tortillas, heat them briefly on the griddle.
  • Cook the tortilla on one side till the underside turns light golden and the surface begins to bubble.
  • Then flip and cook the other side. Rep with the remaining tortilla.
Step 5
  • In two separate round baking pans, place two tortillas.
  • Add in the prepared rice, followed by the black bean mixture. Pour in the sauce and Mexican cheese blend. Roll it up and, lay it down, fold it side down.
  • Pour the remaining enchilada sauce on the tortillas with the remaining enchilada sauce. Sprinkle the remaining cheese over it.
  • Broil for 3-4 mins until the cheese melts and the sauce bubbles.
  • Remove the burritos from the oven and top them with sour cream, salsa, lettuce, and guacamole (optional).
  • The Enchilada Style Burrito is now complete. Serve immediately and enjoy.
