In our house, nothing is spared from the recycle! I hate to throw away good food, so our meals are planned around each other. This is the perfect leftover from your Sunday roast! Or you can just start with a fresh roast beef!

How to Make Cinco de Mayo burritos featuring leftovers!


  1. (It is best to shred your leftover roast beef while it is still warm. I do this after Sunday dinner and then just wrap it up until burrito night!)
  2. Mix the Rotel into the shredded beef. Heat thoroughly.
  3. Spoon a serving of beef and tomato mixture onto burrito shell. Garnish with sour cream, diced tomatoes, black olives, and shredded cheese.

    You can add any other garnishes as you prefer.

    Optional burrito stuffers: refried beans, Spanish rice
