Corned Beef Burritos with Pasilla Cheddar Sauce

Corned Beef Burritos with Pasilla Cheddar

You hear a lot about food fusions, and really an Irish Latin fusion is probably one of the most unique combinations I can think of.   Irish food deals heavily in potatoes, and brines and root based vegetables where latin cuisine sports a completely different spice profile.  I do love to celebrate all the holidays and give the traditional foods a Latin twist , so for St. Patrick’s day I twisted Corned beef and turned it into a Burrito.


What I love about my Corned Beef burrito is that it is lighter and fresher than a traditional corned beef dinner and a lot healthier since it doesn’t rely on gargantuan proportions of corned beef and potatoes.  I can foresee this recipe becoming a favorite Corned Beef leftover option.  The addition of the Pasilla Cheddar sauce gives the entire recipe a latin twist that pulls both cuisines together .

  1. Oh wow, this looks delicious! I would never have thought of combining these two foods, but now that I think about it, they’re two things I love and I think they’d taste great together.

  2. These look absolutely, amazingly scrumptious! I mean really, really good! I LOVE corned beef, and really want to try this recipe. Is it spicy?

  3. This is the first I’ve seen of a recipe with corned beef burritos. I am fond of all the ingredients and the sauce sounds delicious. I have a corned beef right now in waiting to be cooked for sandwiches. I think I should try some your way.
