Ingredients

Guacamole Burrito from Taco Villa features guacamole and cooked seasoned beef as its main ingredients. However, the menu also takes other ingredients like spices, cooked rice, vegetables, and toppings. Let us know all the ingredients before preparing this recipe at home.

For the burrito beef

  • 1 pound minced beef 
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp sweet paprika powder
  • ½ tsp chilli powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
  • ⅛ tsp granulated white sugar
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • ½ cup water

For the burritos

  • 6 soft flour tortillas
  • ¾ cup cooked rice 
  • ½ cup canned kidney beans 
  • 1 cup shredded cheese
  • 1 cup guacamole 
  • sliced salad, chopped tomatoes, chopped paprika, sour cream to taste

 

Method of Preparation

  1. To start with the recipe, you need to prepare the beef first. In a large frying pan, add oil over high heat. When the oil is warm, add minced beef to the oil and cook until the beef is browned, which will take you about 3-4 minutes. 
  2. Turn down the flame to medium-low heat and add all the other ingredients. Stir well to combine the spices with the beef.  Then Simmer for about 10 minutes until almost all the liquid is gone and the beef is properly cooked. 
  3. To assemble the burrito, warm the tortilla in a flat pan. Do not overcook it; just warm it slightly.
  4. Place a flour tortilla on a flat plate. Add cooked rice, seasoned beef, beans, and grated cheese in the middle of the tortilla. 
  5. Microwave the burrito for about 30 seconds until the cheese gets melted. Add guacamole on top of the cheese evenly. Top with salad, tomatoes, paprika, and sour cream to your taste. 
  6. Then, roll the tortilla wrap up to the half, fold the sides up and finish rolling it up to give it the shape of a burrito.
  7. Serve hot and enjoy.

NOTES : Wrap the burrito with foil and keep it in the refrigerator, if you're eating it later. You can simply reheat in the oven to enjoy the burrito later.

My first visit was the second day they opened and I had a lackluster bean and cheese burrito that took 25 minutes to make. I chalked it up to a new opening and vowed to give it another try.

My second visit was 3 weeks later when we ordered two different breakfast burritos that took 48 minutes to make while there were only 2 people in front of us. I won't bring up how aghast I was at paying $3 for a 4 oz side of sour cream since they didn't yet know how to just "add sour cream" to the actual burritos.

My third visit was not horrible, though it was not great either. I ordered a pollo asado burrito on a whole wheat tortilla via online ordering on Yelp. Love the ordering online feature as it saves me so much time. Unfortunately, I arrived at the time I was supposed to and the burrito had not been sitting under a warmer so it was cold. Heating it up would have made the guacamole and pico de gallo taste funny so I just ate it cold. Lastly, while the taste was not bad, I was surprised at the price $6 compared to the size. I've never finished a whole burrito before and this was easy to consume... roughly larger than my Galaxy s7 phone. Hmmm.

I think I would only return due to the ease of ordering on Yelp and close proximity to my office.

This is a pretty good on-campus eatery. I think this is comparable to the taco joints off campus. I've gone twice and tried the queso tacos and rolled tacos.

Queso tacos were pretty loaded with meat, guac, and all the other standard taco ingredients. I prefer my tacos a bit messier as these were really clean. The tortilla itself is thicker and bigger than the ones you'd find off campus (they use 1 tortilla).

The rolled tacos were a bit disappointing. They were very very compact and barely had any meat inside. They do put guac on top though. Also, don't expect to get as much cheese as less than half of my tacos were covered in cheese (cotija?).

The horchata is quite odd. Both times I've had it and tasted somewhat of a floral sweet hint. Sort of similar to jamaica. I would sample it before deciding on buying some if I were you.

Regardless, prices are ok for being an on campus location. The quality is better than most as well.

Definitely wouldn't go more than once per week though.

The Most Popular Queries

Can I customize the guacamole burrito?

Ans: Yes, you can customize the burrito while ordering it from the restaurant. However, you can prepare this recipe at home and customize it as per your requirements. You can skip the cheese if you feel it is adding some extra calories. You can also add your choice of meat in the burrito to make it taste even better.
