Add beef broth to this mixture. Reduce heat, and let it simmer for about 20 to 30 minutes, or until the mixture coats a spoon. When you are done with the mixture, transfer it to a serving dish.
  4. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large skillet over high flame. Stir in 1/3 of the beef, and saute for about 1 minute. Transfer the cooked carne asada to a serving dish. Repeat the same procedure with the remaining beef.
  5. Warm tortillas. Add carne asada meat to it. Then, add rice, guacamole, pico de gallo, and shredded cheese to your burrito. Fold it in the shape of a burrito.

Just found this in my carne asada burrito! Ribbed piece of plastic! Called and spoke to Seth and he offered a remake and a drink. Still GUH-ROSS! Ughhhhh!

Was extremely skeptical about this restaurant given the one I went to was inside a chevron gas station. Setup similar to a chipotle except it tasted like real Mexican food. My carne Asada burrito was amazing. Not a single piece of fat was found anywhere in my food. Their optional "chronic style" quesadillas were the best I've ever had. They grill cheese on the inside of the quesadilla as well as on the outside. Staff was quick and was not stingy on the meat compared to chipotle. Quality food and amazing pricing.

There isn't many options to eat out late in Temecula, especially good food options! My boyfriend is a very hungry man after he's off from work, and there are many late nights so it's almost random at times whenever time he's off. Tonight we had planned to eat out to a spot we enjoy, but missed opening hours. After looking on here for a dining option, I was drawn to the high rating Chronic Tacos has had considering it's only been open for about six months. He was skeptical of a "gas station" food place, but we were definitely blown away by this new little spot. The gas station even gives it a nice extra touch! We enjoyed an Arizona tea with our food bc of them. Don't be afraid to try them out, everything is new so all of the area is very clean! Erma, the employee who helped us out, was so sweet and made our experience enjoyable being there. She made us feel very welcomed and taught my boyfriend a little Spanish too, lol. We had carne asada burritos, and it was late and veggies weren't ready on the steam table, she only took about four minutes to cook us fresh ones! I even appreciated the fact that she kept my boyfriend's burrito warm under a hot lamp or like mini stove thing while she cooked us some fresh veggies. Overall exceptional customer service that I enjoyed her service! Will be coming back for another late time munch. 🙂
