How to make it

  • Combine the lime juice, vinegar, chipotle peppers, garlic, cumin, oregano, black pepper, salt and clove in a blender (you can also use a food processor) and blend at the highest speed until it’s smooth and creamy.
  • Cut the roast up into several smaller pieces and remove any excess fat.
  • In a large dutch oven, heat approximately 2 tbsp of oil and cook each side of the pieces of meat until lightly browned.
  • Pour the adobo sauce sauce over the meat and ad in the chicken broth and bay leaves.
  • Cover and let simmer for about 4 hours, turning every 30 to 40 minutes.
  • Uncover and cook an additional 1 to 2 hours until the meat is easily pulled apart.
  • While the baracoa is cooking, prepare the pico de gallo by combining all of the listed ingredients in a large bowl.
  • Let this chill in the refrigerator until everything is ready to serve.
  • In a medium pan heat the bacon fat over a medium to medium low heat and add in the pinto beans and oregano.
  • Simmer for 45 minutes stirring periodically. Cover and lit sit until you’re ready to assemble the burritos.
  • In another large sauce pan prepare the rice. Combine the water, rice, salt and butter.
  • Bring the water and rice to a boil and then cover.
  • Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes.
  • Remove the cover and stir in the lime juice and cilantro. Cover and let sit until you’re ready to make your burritos.
  • To make your burrito, start with a warmed flour tortilla. This is best done on a dry skillet or in a ziplock bag in the microwave. It shouldn’t take more than a minute, but keep an eye it so you don’t overheat them.
  • Place a good pile of the barbacoa in the middle of the burrito. Next put a few spoons of the rice, beans and then the pico de gallo. If you’d like cheese, guacamole and/or sour cream, place that on top.
  • Fold in both sides of the tortilla and then roll up as tight as possible from bottom to top, keeping the sides closed in as you go. There’s a bit of an art to it, so you may have to practice some. If you mess up, start over. Or enjoy it in bowl.
