Creating these Carne Asada Burritos:

Take your breakfast to the next level and make these Carne Asada Burritos today. They are perfect for meal prepping, to enjoy for brunch or to have on a slow Sunday morning. 

With breakfast I usually take my multivitamins and lately I’ve been enjoying the Every Woman’s One Daily Multivitamin and I’m excited to tell you why!

There are so many vitamins and supplements out there it can be confusing to choose which one is best for you & your body.

As a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, I love how New Chapter is different. Their products are designed with the right processes, like fermentation, to unlock and activate each nutrient and making them more available to the body.

Have you ever taken a supplement and wondered if your body is actually absorbing the nutrients? With New Chapter you don’t have to question their absorption

What is New Chapter?

All of their vitamins, supplements and herbs are designed with purpose and precision and grounded in proven science to provide a product with supplemental nutrition that actually works

Their products are Non-GMO Project Verified, organic and made with whole-food ingredients, which is really neat and sets them apart from other brands on the market.

Why choose Every Woman’s One Daily Multivitamin?

Out of habit, I take my vitamins in the morning with my breakfast. It’s part of my routine and always has been.

But sometimes life gets busy and I forget. Then it’s mid-afternoon, I’m on an empty stomach and “can’t” take my multivitamin because I don’t want to feel nauseous. I’m sure you’ve been there too!

The cool thing about New Chapter Every Woman’s One Daily Multivitamin is that it can be taken on an empty stomach!

This multivitamin is easily digestible and won’t make you feel sick on an empty stomach because it is fermented with clinically studied beneficial probiotics and whole foods. Anything gentle on the stomach and I’m in!

Out of habit, I still like to take my New Chapter multivitamin with my breakfast (like this delicious Carne Asada Burrito) but also love knowing I don’t have to worry if I forget!

What is Carne Asada?

Carne Asada translated means grilled meat. Usually it is thinly sliced beef. In talking with some friends, carne asada seasonings differ from family to family and is not traditionally made with one specific cut of beef either!

step by step process of making carne asada breakfast burritos

How to make Carne Asada Burritos

First, marinate the steak. Combine the ingredients for the marinade together in a medium sized bowl. Place the steak and marinade in Ziplock baggie and marinate for a minimum of 60 minutes or up to 4 hours. 

Make the Pico de Gallo next. Dice up the tomatoes, onion and cilantro in a small bowl and squeeze the lime juice over it. Season with salt and pepper and place in the fridge to allow the ingredients to marry.

Once your steak is done marinating, remove from the fridge. Heat a large pan on the stove over medium heat. Add 2 Tbsp. Olive oil to the pan and once the oil is hot, cook the steak for 3-5 minutes on each side. (~135°F for medium rare, ~145°F medium, ~155°F medium well). Remove from heat. Cut into even strips or bite sized pieces. Set aside in a bowl.

Cook your tater tots or French fries according to package directions. Mine took ~17 minutes in the oven. 

Heat your tortillas on the stove using a flat pan. Get the pan hot first and then let the tortilla cook for ~1 minute on each side to get slightly toasted.

Scramble your eggs (see my favorite method below). Then your burrito is ready to be rolled up! Place your tortilla on a flat surface, add the eggs and carne asada steak on one half of the tortilla. Then add the tater tots, pico de Gallo and cheese. Roll burrito up with a firm grip until burrito is sealed.  (Fold bottom and sides of tortilla over filling and roll up).

How to make scrambled eggs with creme fraiche

Break your eggs into a pan on low heat. Add in 3 Tbsp. Butter. Use a spatula to stir the eggs frequently to combine the yolks and the whites. 

As the mixture begins to set, add the remaining 3 Tbsp. Butter. Eggs will take ~4-5 minutes to scramble and they should be very soft. 

Add in 2 Tbsp. Of creme fraiche and season with salt and pepper at the very last minute. 

This step should be done right as you are ready to roll up your burritos!

What type of steak should I use?

I prefer using a thin cut of top round steak for these carne asada burritos. It cooks nicely and fast and has little fat. You can use flank steak, pre seasoned carne asada steak, or whatever you have available.

Can I freeze Carne Asada Burritos?

Yep! These are freezer-friendly breakfast burritos and it’s so easy to make for meal prep. Wrap the burrito tightly in aluminum foil and freeze your burritos in a single layer on a baking sheet (the freeze better this way!).

Once completely frozen, store in a gallon-sized Ziplock freezer bag and when you’re ready to enjoy microwave for 1-2 minutes or heat in the oven at 350°F for 12-15 minutes.
