Pibil is a pre-Colombian, Yucatecan-style recipe where pork is seasoned with citrus and achiote paste, whose annatto seeds give it its characteristic red colour. Carnitas are a Mexican delicacy – slow-cooked pork shoulder that has been pulled and then fried to give it a distinctive combination of tender and crispy. Put them together and you’ve got yourself the makings of one damn fine burrito!
My huge burritos come with all the fixin’s: arroz verde (rice seasoned with poblano peppers & cilantro), black beans with epazote (a herb that’s the secret to making amazing Mexican beans), sweet & tender red peppers, a bit of tangy guacamole, cool sour cream and fresh pico de gallo (tomato & jalapeño salsa) all wrapped up in a grilled flour tortilla. Served with tortilla chips and pico de gallo on the side. Also available #vegetarian (with cheese), #vegan with more of all the other goodies, and/or #gluten-free on corn tortillas.
#vegan & #GF options available
We’ll also have fresh pie from the wood ovens at Dufferin Grove!
