Method of Preparation

  1. To start with the dish cut the potatoes into cubes for about 1/2 inches. Cut them smaller as it will be cooked in less time. 
  2. Switch on the gas stove. Place a skillet over it. When the skillet is warm, add 1 Tablespoon of oil to it. 
  3. Then add the cut potatoes. Cook the potatoes on medium heat until they become little crispy, which will take you about 5-7 minutes. 
  4. Add chopped onion to the potatoes and stir a little. Now season the potatoes with salt and ground black pepper and stir for about a minute. Cover on medium low heat and let the potatoes cook until they become tender, which will take you another 5-7 minutes.
  5. Add green onion to the potatoes and set aside. 
  6. In the same skillet add a little oil and let it warm. Add thinly sliced steak to it. Stir for about 2 minutes or until it becomes browned. Season the steak with salt, pepper powder, paprika powder, onion powder, and garlic powder. 
  7. Cook the steak for another 5-7 minutes or until it is fully cooked. When you are done with the steak, keep aside. 
  8. To assemble the burritos, lay one tortilla on a flat pan. Add about ¼ cup of the cooked potatoes in the center bottom of the tortilla. 
  9. Add the seasoned steak and finishing with the cheese, bacon, chipotle sauce, and Del Taco’s crinkled fries. 
  10. Now fold the sides over the filling and then with the sides folded in by using your thumbs to bring up the bottom of the tortilla. Roll it up tightly until you get the shape of a burrito. Repeat the same procedure with remaining tortillas. Serve hot and fresh.
  11. You can also store the potato steak burritos in refrigerator for 3-5 days or in the freezer up to 6 months.
  12. To freeze the burritos, you have to wrap each individual burrito in parchment paper and then in aluminium foil. Store all the wrapped burritos in a freezer zip lock bag or an airtight container.

To Serve

To serve the microwave burritos, cook them in the microwave until they become hot or brown in a skillet on medium low heat. Cover until they become golden on all sides. 


Serve the potato steak burritos with tomato salsa, Pico de Gallo, sour cream, guacamole, or chopped avocados.

Not a fan of the new "Epic Burritos"

Grabbed a couple of Epic Burritos to take home. The Steak & potato was mostly cold french fires. The Epic chicken burrito was made with rice & black beans, not too bad. Next visit, think will go back to regular burritos and tacos. Service is always good here, can't complain about the staff.

Great Steak & Potato
