What is on a 7 Layer Burrito

Every 7-layer burrito recipe is a bit different, but each one has seven different layers of food. The seven layers in my stuffed burritos are refried beans, cheddar cheese, sour cream, lettuce, black olives, tomatoes, and guacamole. All the ingredients are stuffed in a large flour tortilla.

It’s so packed with the good stuff you almost need to eat it with a fork! That’s a sign of a good burrito. 

Variations to Recipe 

You can always add more ingredients to have even more layers in these stuffed burritos. It’s all about choice and preferences. If you don’t like olives, no problem, you can totally leave them out. Love cilantro? That’s great, add some in. There are no wrong answers when it comes to these burritos. Let’s take a look at a few tasty options:

  • Black Beans – Instead of using just refried beans, add in some protein-packed black beans. They look great and taste even better. 
  • Pico de Gallo – Add a little bit of flair to your burritos by adding some fresh pico de Gallo. It’s insanely good and hard to resist. 
  • Chicken – If you want to add a little bit of meat in, go ahead! Cook some chicken and shred it up or dice it to add even more protein. 
  • Ground Beef – Burritos are known for having lots of meats like ground beef. Season it with taco seasoning and enjoy!
  • Rice – Another fantastic choice is cooked rice. You could opt for traditional white rice or go for more of Mexican style rice. Both are great and will keep you satisfied.

Can You Add Meat To This Burrito 

Yes, of course, you can add meat to this 7 Layer burrito recipe. It’s easy and adds even more pizzazz to the already fantastic dish. Just make sure to cook the meat before adding it. I also recommend seasoning with your favorite taco seasoning too. This will bring out the flavors and be a great combination to everything else. 

How To Make These Burritos Into Pinwheels 

Yes, you can transform these burritos into pinwheels pretty easily. Put about half the filling you would for a typical burrito. Then fold in the edges and roll it up tightly. Put it in the fridge for 1-2 hours so it can set up, then remove it from the fridge and cut them into pinwheels. 

Do These Store Well

Yes, these burritos store very well. Wrap each one in plastic wrap very tightly, then put them all in a storage container in the fridge. They will last 3-5 days and are great for meal prepping. Then you can quickly grab one, toss it in the microwave, and chow down. Or eat it cold if that’s your preference. 

Can I Double The Recipe 

Yes, you can double or even triple this 7 layer burrito recipe. Make as many as you need and keep them in the fridge until you are ready to serve. Warm in the microwave if you want them hot. 

How Do You Wrap A Burrito

To wrap a burrito, you will need to fold each edge in towards the center. Then roll it. Keep the seam side down and wrap it in plastic wrap for storage or eat right away.
