The classic Mexican roll has found its way into the kitchens of many households. The burrito is a delicious dish, and it's even better when reheated properly. However, reheating a burrito isn't as easy as throwing it in the microwave. 

If you're looking to reheat your burrito perfectly, so it tastes just as delicious as the day it was made, we have the perfect method for you.

Reheating A Burrito On The Stove - Without The Fillings

Burrito may look like a simple, quick snack. However, there are a lot of things that go into making one. Think fillings, sauces, and even the different types of tortillas (wrap)! All these factors play a role in how your burrito will reheat.

So, what's the best way to reheat a burrito? Well, we love reheating the fillings and wrap separately! This way, your wrap won't become soggy, and your fillings will stay nice and hot.  

Here's what you need to do:

Reheating A Whole Burrito (With Fillings Intact)

If you're short on time or just don't feel like taking out all the fillings, you can reheat your burrito with everything intact. The key is to use foil, so your tortilla doesn't dry out. There are different methods to reheat a burrito with the fillings intact. Let's go through each of them.

However, before proceeding with any of these methods below, make sure that your burrito is out of the fridge at least 30 minutes beforehand. Allow to reach room temperature.

Steps To Reheat A Burrito In The Microwave

Are you looking for a way to crisp up your burrito? If so, then the air fryer is the way to go. This appliance is becoming increasingly popular because it's quick and doesn't require a lot of oil. Here are the steps:

How To Store A Burrito?

If you have leftovers or want to meal prep, it's important to know how to store your burrito properly. The best way to store a burrito is in the fridge, where it can last up to four days.

To store a burrito, you must wrap it tightly in aluminum foil or place it in an airtight container. If you're using a freezer-safe bag, squeeze out as much air as possible before sealing the bag.

You can also freeze your burrito for up to six months. However, it's best to use a frozen burrito within 3 months for the best quality. When freezing, we recommend not adding any sauces or condiments. These can make your burrito soggy when reheated.

To reheat a frozen burrito, follow the same steps as above. The only difference is that you'll need to reheat it for longer. Or, you can take the burrito out of the freezer the night before and let it thaw in the fridge. It'll make reheating quicker and easier.

When reheating, ensure that your burrito is piping hot all the way through. Don't hesitate to reheat for a longer time if needed.
