Carne asada? Beans and cheese? Nope -- just meth.

An Arizona woman was arrested last week after she was caught smuggling thousands of dollars worth of meth inside of (what looked like) burritos.

According to Customs and Border Protection, the 23-year-old Nogales, Ariz., woman crossed the Port of Nogales pedestrian bridge before she was caught by a drug-sniffing dog.

Officers searched her and found more than a pound of meth wrapped inside tortillas, which were inside a bag she was carrying.

The meth was reportedly worth more than $3,000. 

CBP says she was turned over to US Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations.
