Summer Tri-Tip Burrito

Total Time: 3 Hours

Summer is almost here, and it’s time to get rolling… burritos, that is. These try-tip burritos are jam packed full of flavor. The beef gets a slow braise and plenty of fresh flavor from green chiles, oregano, thyme, and bay leaves. The burritos themselves get even more of a fresh kick from’s own green onion and cilantro pico de gallo.
