Fiesta Burrito Grande Meal Prep Extravaganza


  • 30 tortillas (burrito size)
  • 4 cups uncooked rice (I used brown rice)
  • 4 cups uncooked lentils (I used small brown lentils)
  • 5 lbs boneless pork butt (for pulled pork)
  • 5 lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 2 lbs ground beef (I used 85%)
  • 30 slices of cheddar cheese
  • 32 oz of salsa
  • 32 oz of guacamole
  • ground turmeric (for chicken)
  • 2 oz taco seasoning (for ground beef)
  • limes (optional)
  • sour cream (optional)


  1. Cook the rice. I put 4 cups rice and 6 cups water in the Instant Pot on the rice cooker mode, and they were too wet and too al dente. I will test out some other recipes; this wasn’t a good one. Once rice is cooked, set aside.
  2. Cook the lentils. Put 4 cups lentils and 6 cups of water in the Instant Pot at high pressure for 6 minutes, then do a quick release. Once lentils are cooked, set aside. They’re going to be wet, but that’s ok. Just let them soak up the water.
  3. Put the chicken thighs on 2 baking sheets. Season both sides with salt, pepper, and turmeric. Then bake at 475 degrees for ~18 minutes. Use a meat thermometer to make sure temperature is at least 165 degrees. If not, continue baking! Once the chicken cools, cut into small pieces.
  4. Add ground beef to a heated nonstick pan. Add taco seasoning and continue to brown. Set aside.
  5. Cook pulled pork. George cooked this in the Instant Pot, using a mix of these 2 recipes. I don’t know exactly what he put in there, my bad. So these ingredients are missing from the ingredient list.
  6. Now is the fun part! Time to form a burrito assembly line!
    1. Tear off a square piece of aluminum foil and add to your plate.
    2. Put a tortilla on the foil.
    3. Add a slice of cheese.
    4. Add 2 scoops lentils.
    5. Add 2 scoops rice.
    6. Add meat of choice. Or combine 2 or 3.
    7. Add salsa and guacamole.
    8. Wrap up the burrito. Then wrap the foil around it.
  7. When ready to eat, reheat them in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Serve with lime and/or sour cream.


  • I didn’t add veggies because I wanted to freeze the burritos, and I think veggies wouldn’t taste as good after being frozen. Plus, it would make the burritos soggy.
  • But if you are not freezing them and instead are eating them now, I think they taste great with bell peppers.
