Total Time 6 hrs
Servings 6


  • 1 rack of beef back ribs 


  • 2 tsp ancho Chile 
  • 1 tsp black pepper 
  • 2 tsp garlic powder 
  • 1 tsp cumin 
  • 2 tsp lemon pepper 
  • 3 tsp smoked paprika powder 

Pico De Gallo

  • 1/2 large tomato 
  • 1/4 red onion 
  • 1 tbsp cilantro 
  • 1 jalapeño pepper 
  • Juice of 1 lime 
  • Salt and pepper to taste 


  •  Start off by preheating your grill to 275-300 degrees.
  • Now let’s prep the ribs! Remove the membrane. Use a paper towel to help you get a grip of the membrane. You can always leave it on and score it with a knife.
  • Now let’s combine all the seasoning in a bowl. Once that is done, add a bit of cooking oil to the ribs. This will act as a binder. 
  • Add salt then follow up with the seasoning and place the ribs on the grill for 3 hours.
  • After 3 hours and once the color looks right on the ribs. Wrap them in foil, wrap them nice and tight. Place them back on the grill for 2 additional hours.
  • After 2 hours, check to see if they are nice and tender! Use a tooth pick to stab the meat. If it goes in like butter, then they are good to go.
  • let them rest for 30 minutes before shredding them.
  • While they are resting, make the pico de gallo. Combine all ingredients and mince them all together. Then, add salt and pepper to taste. 
  • Shred the ribs and if need be, use a cleaver or knife to chop the meat.
  •  Now in a skillet add the meat and let it get crispy. Turn the heat on low and add the Oaxaca cheese. Once it melts, remove the meat and let’s assemble in a large burrito tortilla!
  • Add steamed rice, black beans, the meat, and finally the pico de gallo. Fold the burrito and place back on the same skillet on med low heat.
  • Crisp the burrito up on all sides for about 30 seconds per side. Let cool for 3 min before serving. 


I make the steamed rice the day before. The beans came from a can. You gotta make it easy 😂 makes about 6 burritos
