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 .

Wanna try it with chicken instead of beef 🙂
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.

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.
