This got rave reviews at our house. I used pork tenderloin cut into very small cubes and let it marinate for 3 hours. I've never had a burrito before with lime and cilantro, but it is so delicious that I'll never use any other marinade from now on. They tasted much better than burritos we've had in Mexican restaurants and we will be making these again often!

These were excellent. Very easy to make ... and I loved the flavors of the lime and cilantro. I can't wait to make them again. I did not change anything... I used pork tenderloin. Thanks for sharing!
