To prepare this dish, start off by cooking the rice. You can either use a sauce pan with a lid or you can use a rice cooker. If you are using a sauce pan, put in 1/2 cup of rice and add 1 cup of water on high heat. Once it boils, reduce the heat to low and cook until done. Once the rice is cooked, remove it from the stove top and set aside.

While the rice is cooking, pre-heat a skillet and prepare all the ingredients needed for this beef burrito recipe. Dice up the tomatoes, red chiles and green onions, then set aside. With the grater, grate the cheese and place it in a bowl. Then, chop up the cilantro and mince the garlic. Set all these ingredients aside. Next, peel the avocado, discard the seed and place the avocado in a bowl. Smash it up, then set aside. 

Next, season the beef strips with chili powder, salt and pepper on both sides. Once the pan is hot, add a touch of vegetable oil and cook the beef strips until browned. Meanwhile, place the tortillas in the microwave and heat them up for about 1 minute. 


Serve this beef burrito hot. First, spread the avocado onto the tortillas. Then, add the cooked seasoned beef strips and the rest of the ingredients. Add hot sauce, if desired. Just make sure to not overstuff the tortilla or the contents will spill out when you are trying to roll it up.
