Yup, there is no mistaking that burritos are one of life’s simple pleasures. They are downright delicious and if you get one that is made properly, it is safe to say that your tongue and stomach will be thanking your immensely.

If you were too full to finish the burrito you ordered for dinner/lunch or you just happen to have one stashed away in the fridge, then I will give you a quick rundown as to the best way to reheat it properly so that it is piping hot and palatable.

No Microwaves!

If you want to end up with slop in a plate, then by all means go ahead and use the microwave to reheat your masterpiece of gastronomical proportions!!!!!! The microwave is a no-no simply because everything is just going to get mushy and soggy. The tortilla will just fall apart, the rice just a total, it is just a recipe for disaster, unless you are starving and cannot wait.

No microwaves ever! Ever, ever!

Use the Oven

If you want to reheat that burrito you got from Chipotle properly, then it is a good idea to put it in the oven. It is a really simple process and it will just take a couple of minutes to have it all heated and ready to be devoured.

What you will need:

  • Burrito
  • Foil

Once you have everything in place, it is just as simple as following these simple steps:

  1. Wrap the burrito in foil
  2. Turn the stove on to 350 F
  3. Place burrito in stove and let it heat up for about 15 minutes or until it is warmed up to your liking
  4. Take out and feast!

As you can see it is a pretty simple process and if you want to re-enjoy that amazing piece of Mexican cuisine, then all you need to do is spend a couple of minutes doing it properly.

  1. I use this technique for home made burritos I make as well. I turns out fabulous … much better result that rendered by a microwave. I also love to lightly coat the outside of the flour tortilla with a little lard. This extra touch imparts a delicate slight crispness to the burrito. Wonderful! Thanks for sharing.
