Are Trader Joe's Iconic Carne Asada Burritos Pre-Cooked?
By Haldan Kirsch
Packed with beef, onions, chiles, and cilantro, the carne asada burritos at Trader Joe's are a great buy, and since they're pre-cooked, they just need a quick reheat.
Per Trader Joe's, the tortilla that keeps the burrito under wraps is designed to be reheated for the best texture and won't turn "hard or crispy" when microwaved.
Even though the beef inside these burritos has been pre-cooked, it still wouldn't be safe to consume without properly reheating it.
The USDA says that letting food sit out at room temperature to thaw can leave some parts of the food in the temperature "danger zone," where bacteria is most capable of spreading.
According to the packaging on Trader Joe's carne asada burritos, the best way to reheat them is to use a microwave or a conventional oven.
To use an air fryer, wrap your frozen burrito in aluminum foil and heat it for 15 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit to reheat Trader Joe's carne asada burritos.
