1 Easy Cinco de Mayo RV Recipe: Cubed Pork and Chorizo Burritos

Another great RV recipe from our RV Lifestyle reporter and chef Mary Jane Curry.

Last night, I experimented with combining some familiar ingredients with a twist and came up with a tasty twist on making a burrito.  The chorizo adds a little zing to the filling while the cubed pork add a nice crunch.

The filling is versatile and could be used as a nacho topping, soft taco, tostada, enchilada… you name it.

For Cinco de Mayo … this may be a show stopper! 

I prepared the filling on the stovetop in our RV Galley using a heavy Dutch oven to saute’ the filling then gently simmered the ingredients to blend the flavors and reduce/thicken the sauce.   The results… yummy!

Makes 5 – 6 burritos or a couple of varied Mexican style meals
