The Ideal Way To Reheat Your Burrito Without Ruining It
Whether you’re too full or just want to make your burrito last longer, you can easily save it for later. These tips will help you reheat it to its former glory.
The best way to reheat a burrito is in the oven. The microwave may be faster, but it can leave you with an unevenly heated burrito with a cardboard tortilla.
When heated in the oven, a burrito will retain its inner juiciness while the tortilla will get nice and toasty without drying out. Simply preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Wrap your burrito in aluminum foil, place it on the middle rack, and heat for 15 to 20 minutes depending on the burrito’s size. For extra crisp, remove the foil for the last few minutes.
If you’re wary about heating ingredients like lettuce, guacamole, or sour cream, you’ll have to open the burrito and scoop out those ingredients before reheating.
However, keep in mind that the aluminum foil will help keep the lettuce and tomatoes fresh, and the sour cream and guac will infuse the rest of the burrito with extra flavor.
For a frozen burrito, heat it at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 to 30 minutes, or plan ahead and place it in the fridge beforehand so it can thaw out.
