Dish It: El Chapo Surf & Turf Burrito from Sonora Grill

April 5, 2018

Hold it in your hands and call it your bae-ritto.


Are you ready to try the most extraordinary burrito?  I'm talking about extra meaty, extra juicy and so extra large you will need to gather a party to take it down! Sonora Grill is known for their bacon wrapped burritos called El Chapo, and I had to get my hands on one.


Sonora Grill is located in the city of Moreno Valley, California in a small shopping center between March Field Air Museum and Riverside County Superior Court.


One astonishing variation of El Chapo is the Surf & Turf special.  This burrito is made with two 14 inch flour tortillas that are hand-made in-house, daily.  The tortillas are set to partially overlap one another in order to achieve an astronomical size.  A minimal layer of rice and beans coat the tortillas to set the base for one pound of juicy Angus beef- carne asada AND one pound of large succulent shrimp.  The burrito is then topped with fire roasted salsa, pico de gallo and avocado, before it's wrapped into a bundle of joy.  As if this isn't enough to get our mouth watering, the burrito is then wrapped in a quarter pound of bacon and grilled until crispy.  Mama-mia!  


El Chapo Surf & Turf Burrito is at large... and I mean LARGE. ($55)


I took a serrated knife to cut a slice of burrito for myself.  I held a (burger size) piece in my hands and bite after bite was a mouth full of juicy steak, shrimp and bacon.  I become excited as the meat and juices are overflow.  The meats were well seasoned.  Sonora steak has a of smoky flavor, while the shrimp a secret garlic blend.  I did not realize it had beans until I read the description.  The burrito is loaded with amazing flavor only a combination of this sort can provide.  It had my taste buds screaming, FIESTA, FIESTA!    


On a recent trip to Sonora Grill, five Inland Empire foodies and I, took El Chapo down.  Watch the action take place on my Instagram video above. 


Now, if you don't have a hungry team like I did, there is a personal size El Chapo Burrito ($10.99) on the menu you can order with your choice of meat.  Note that the Surf & Turf special only comes in party size.


Each bite is full of plump shrimp, juicy steak and crispy bacon!


Bury me with burrito wrappers so the burrito gods know I lived a full life.
