Jalapeño Cheddar Burritos

print Jalapeño Cheddar Burritos

Spicy and cheesy, these Mexican inspired burritos incorporate unique tastes and textures. Use Springer's Jalapeno Cheese Infusion Sausages for best results.

Makes 4 servings.


4 Springer's Jalapeno Cheese Infusion Suasages
4 10-inch (25 cm) flour tortillas
1 cup shredded lettuce 250 mL
1 cup plum tomatoes, diced 250 mL
1/2 cup sliced avocado 125 mL
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro 50 mL
2 tbsp sour cream 30 mL
1/2 cup prepared salsa 125 mL


Grill sausages according to the package instructions.

In a large dry skillet, over medium heat, warm the tortillas one by one, turning once, until pale golden on both sides, about 30 seconds per side.

Arrange each warmed tortilla over 4 plates. Top each with a grilled sausage. Sprinkle with lettuce, plum tomatoes, avocado, cilantro and sour cream. Fold in sides and roll up to enclose filling. Serve with salsa.

Innovative: Substitute prepared guacamole for the avocado if yours isn’t ripe and omit the sour cream.

Beer Pairing Suggestions
An Ontario India Pale Ale such as: Maclean’s Pale Ale, Heritage Brewery’s Sgt. Major IPA; or Granite’s Ringwood Ale to compliment the spicy recipe.

Tip: Warming the tortillas in a pan before rolling will bring back a “fresh baked” flavour and texture.
