Sink your teeth into these Vampire Steak Burritos made with lime-garlic steak, pico de gallo, and Asiago cheese! They’re a fangtastic Halloween dinner idea!

I have to admit something to you.  I have been binge watching the Twilight movies lately like a teenage fangirl.  Like every time they’re on TV, I turn them on.  Funny since the books didn’t hold my interest!  At all!  To be honest, I couldn’t get passed the second chapter of the first book.  It was just so bad! 

Then, the movies came out.  I rolled my eyes at them at first.  I mean, sparkly vampires?  Edward Cullen was definitely no Lestat!  But after giving them a chance, I quickly became hooked.  I even managed to see Breaking Dawn in the theater.

My love of vampire TV and movies probably started with Interview with the Vampire and continued with Buffy the Vampire Slayer.  I tuned into Buffy every week and watched the Angel spin-off.  There are so many other great vampire shows out there and I definitely need to catch up!

If there’s one thing I love as much as vampire TV and movies, it’s Mexican food!  You might remember the Halloween Boo-rito Bake I made a couple years ago.  It was a delicious and easy dish to make for Halloween night!  So I decided to make a vampire-themed burrito for Halloween this year.

We always seem to have London broil in our house.  One London broil can be split to make two meals for us.  It’s a pretty cheap cut of beef that works well in a variety of dishes.  Like steak burritos!  Cut into thin slices, London broil made a perfect base for this recipe!

I made London broil for dinner the other night and used the leftovers to make these burritos.  The London broil was lightly seasoned.  I added minced garlic and lime juice to brighten up the flavor.  Then, I topped my burritos with homemade pico de gallo and shredded Asiago cheese.

The burrito was folded up in a tortilla with edges cut to resemble bat wings.  These vampire burritos weren’t complete without black olive eyes and Asiago fangs dripping with blood – or, in this case, hot sauce!

    LOVE those burritos. I actually saw the first Twilight movie and wondered what all the hype was about then read the books and got hooked– then watched the rest of the movies as they came out of course. Definitely feels like a guilty pleasure 😉

      Twilight is a big guilty pleasure of mine! Maybe one day I’ll give the books a chance again, but for now I’ll stick to the movies! Thanks! 🙂
