For Pico, toss together tomatoes, onions, jalapeño or Serrano, cilantro and salt to taste.

For Avo-Sour Cream, add avocado, sour cream and lime juice to the food processor and pulse to combine.

Char tortillas 30-45 seconds on each side over an open flame on a gas burner or in hot, dry skillet on an electric stove.

Working down the center of the tortillas, leaving 1 1/2 to 2 inches at either end to edge, build burritos with some pickled jalapeños, avocado cream, pico, Fritos, queso sauce, beef chili and rice. Tuck in tortilla top and bottom then rotate burrito a quarter turn and wrap and roll sides. Cut in half to serve.
