Is it a burrito? An Asian wrap? I don't know... all I do know it is really tasty!

I didn't get a pic with the tortilla b/c we had eaten them all. This pic is of the next day "leftovers" that I like to just have without the tortilla. The leftovers are great when you mix the beef, beans and cheese, warm that up together, and top it with the sauce, lettuce and tomato.

How to Make Asian Mexican Fusion Burrito

Step-by-Step

  1. Spice ground beef with salt and pepper to taste, and half of the fajita seasoning packet. Brown ground beef and drain off almost all the grease; save about 1/4 of it in the pan.
  2. While beef is browning, finely dice up 1/4 of the red onion, and thinly slice all of the yellow onion and bell peppers into fine strips. Add to beef.
  3. Reduce heat, cover and let simmer.
  4. Grate the fresh ginger. Add to beef along with water and the soy sauce. Cover and let simmer for 10-15 minutes, stirring every so often.
  5. Prepare your toppings: grate the cheeses, finely chop the lettuce, tomato and the other 1/4 of the red onion.
  6. Add milk and rest of fajita seasonings to beef. Cover and let simmer for 10 more minutes, stirring every so often.
  7. Pour beans into microwave-safe container. Cover the top with your tortillas and microwave for 1-2 minutes.
  8. At this point, you can mix your honey, teriyaki and red pepper flakes (if you don't have access to the Asian Zing sauce).
  9. Assemble burrito with beans, beef, cheese, onion, lettuce, tomato and top with Asian sauce, or leave that sauce to the side.
