Commonly Asked Questions

How long can I store my burrito?

Unfortunately, burritos are best served and eaten fresh. That is why it is highly recommended that you finish your burrito once you start eating it. But in cases of leftovers, place your burrito inside an airtight container and keep it refrigerated. Eat it immediately the day after.

Is it okay not to put sour cream in my burrito?

Yes, of course. As mentioned above, you can put salsa in your burritos. If you don’t want some sour cream, feel free to substitute it with some salsa or just leave it be.
