  1. Make the salsa by adding all ingredients into a food processor or blender.
  2. Slice the onion and peppers to prepare them to sauté.
  3. Heat up your beans on low heat.
  4. Prepare the avocado, lettuce and cilantro by chopping and slicing.
  5. Prepare the steak, slice it into small pieces and season with salt and pepper.
  6. Sauté the vegetables in a large frying pan adding a little olive oil only if it sticks. Transfer cooked vegetables to a bowl.
  7. Cook the meat in the same pan you used for the vegetables, lightly brown on each side.
  8. Warm up the tortillas by placing them in another large frying pan over low/medium heat. You can also warm them in a microwave.
  9. Build your burritos adding the ingredients and then use my fold technique to keep it all together.
