Burrito Summer Roll

10
Rice Paper Wrappers
2
Cups Pulled Pork Carnitas
2
Cups Cooked Rice
2
Cups Shredded Lettuce
1
Can Black Beans
1
Cup Old El Paso Thick and Chunky Salsa

Directions

  • 1 Toss the salsa and about 10 of the black beans into the food processor. Blend untll smooth. Set aside as dipping sauce.
  • 2 Prep all ingredients and get them ready. Place them all around a clean surface for rolling.
  • 3 Fill a shallow bowl with warm water.
  • 4 Dip your rice paper into the water as quick as you can. Just get it in there and take it out, only leaving it in the water for about a second. It will still feel too firm, but the water will continue to soak in and the final texture will be just right.
  • 5 Place the wrapper on the rolling surface and start putting the ingredients in. Start with the rice and lettuce, then add the beans and pork.
  • 6 Wrap the paper into a nice summer roll. Repeat with the rest of the rolls.
  • 7 Serve with the dipping sauce.

Burrito Summer Roll  

As prepared by The Food in my Beard

These days it feels like my life revolves around tacos and burritos.


I’ve been working hard to help open a burrito shop, and as you can imagine, burritos somehow seep into every aspect of my waking life. And when I’m not awake, I even dream about them!

This recipe came from me taking home lots of leftovers night after night, and finally getting sick of eating just burritos over and over again.

I had some Vietnamese rice paper in the pantry, so I decided to put my burrito ingredients into a fresh summer roll.

No summer roll is complete without a dipping sauce. For this variety, all I did was blend up a salsa in the food processor.

Try this simple Burrito Summer Roll recipe next time you have some leftover pulled pork. It’s a perfect app for this time of the year because it’s served cold and there’s no cooking involved!

Salsa in food processor

Just pour the salsa into a food processor with a couple of the beans to make a nicely textured sauce.

Pouring salsa sauce

You could use this sauce for a variety of things. Serve to people who like salsa with no chunks, pour over a steak, or mix with vodka for a weird Bloody Mary.

Rice paper

If you’ve never used rice paper, you are in for a treat! They are super tasty and easy to use.

Dipping rice paper in water

Just dip in water for about a second, fill with ingredients, and roll. It might seem like you should leave it in the water longer because it is still somewhat hard. Don’t cave to your instincts! Take it out of the water and add your ingredients; it will continue to soften over time.

Filling on rice paper

Fill and roll. Just like rolling a burrito! Which I do every day.

Burrito Summer Roll, ready to eat

These had a nice mix of burrito and summer roll flavor! If you make these at your next BBQ I guarantee they’ll be a huge hit. If they aren't, you know where to find me.

Dipping Burrito Summer Roll

The sauce held on to the rolls perfectly.
