  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 pounds tomatillos (fresh, husks discarded, rinsed and patted dry)
  • 1 jalapeno chilies
  • 1 avocado (ripe, pitted, peeled and chopped)
  • 2/3 cup white onion (or yellow onion, chopped)
  • 1/3 cup cilantro leaves (packed)
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 pinch sugar
  • 6 flour tortillas ("burrito sized" 10-inch, or whole grain tortillas)
  • 16 ounces fat-free refried beans (heated*)
  • 1 cup cooked white rice (heated)
  • 1 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend (reduced-fat, four cheese, shredded)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro (chopped)
  • lime wedges (for serving)

Directions

  1. For Salsa Verde: Prepare grill for direct cooking over medium-high heat, about 450 degrees F. Place tomatillos and jalapeño on grill grate and cook, with the lid closed, turning them occasionally, until jalapeño skin is blackened and blistered (about 5 minutes) and tomatillos are browned but not bursting (7 to 9 minutes). Transfer them to a bowl as they are done, and let cool. Scrape and discard skin from jalapeño. Seed jalapeño, reserving seeds.
  2. Pulse avocado, tomatillos and any juices, jalapeño (without seeds), onion, cilantro, oil, garlic, salt and sugar in a blender or food processor until smooth.For a spicier salsa, add seeds.Transfer to a medium saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Reduce heat to very low to keep salsa warm. Extra salsa can be stored in the refrigerator and kept up to 3 days.
  3. To make pork: Lightly oil grill grate. Brush pork with oil and season with chili powder and salt. Grill pork over medium-high heat, with lid closed, about 4 minutes per side, or until the internal temperature reaches between 145 degrees F. (medium rare) to 160 degrees F. (medium) on a digital meat thermometer. Remove from grill and let rest for 3 minutes.
  4. Place tortillas on grill grate and cook until heated, about 30 seconds per side. Remove from grill and wrap in a napkin to keep warm.
  5. To assemble burrito: Chop pork into bite-sized pieces.For each burrito, spread 2 tablespoons of beans in a wide strip on center of tortilla.Top with rice and cheese, evenly distributed between the burritos, and 1/6 of chopped pork. Sprinkle with cilantro. Fold in right and left sides, and roll up tortilla from the bottom. Transfer each to a dinner plate.Smother each with one sixth of warm salsa, add lime wedges and serve immediately.
