This is an old stand-by in my house! I always have the ingredients on hand, and my hubby loves them! Shhhh...don't tell him how easy they are!!! You can add anything you'd like to these! I like adding some leftover Cheesy Salsa Rice inside!
- 1 lb lean ground beef
- 1 (1 1/4 ounce) envelope taco seasoning
- 1 (64 ounce) can pinto beans
- 1⁄2 onion, chopped
- 6 flour tortillas
- 32 ounces green enchilada sauce (use red if you prefer)
- 2 -3 cups cheddar cheese, grated
- avocado (optional)
- tomato (optional)
- lettuce (optional)
- hot sauce (optional)
- jalapeno (optional)
- Brown the beef and drain.
- Add taco seasoning and 1/2 cup water and cook until all liquid is gone.
- Meanwhile, drain about half of the liquid off of the pinto beans and then heat in a pan.
- When beans start to simmer, lightly mash until you get the desired consistency (I like some whole beans left). Season to taste with salt, about 1 teaspoon.
- Lightly heat one tortilla over burner until pliable.
- Spread some beans down the center or tortilla and top with some seasoned meat. Sprinkle on some onions and any other options you'd like. (Save some for on top!).
- Tuck in sides of tortilla and then roll up. Place seamside down on a microwave safe plate.
- Spoon some enchilada sauce over burrito and top with lots of grated cheese.
- Lightly cover with micro-safe paper and cook on HIGH for about 2 minutes, until the cheese is nice and melted.
- Repeat for remaining burritos.
- Serve with sour cream or scattered tomatoes or anything you'd like!
This was so easy to put together. I already had cooked ground beef in the freezer so I nuked it for a few minutes and then heated the ground beef completely in a pan with the taco seasoning. Since I was already using the oven, I made these burritos and warmed them in the oven until the cheese melted. I'm going to try making a bunch of these and freezing them without the toppings for OMAC. I think they'll work out very well. Dinner was on the table in no time at all tonight and this will be added to our favorites.
Very good and easy to make. I followed the recipe as written other then I used refried beans instead of pinto as I am not a huge fan of pintos. My kids topped theirs with some hot sauce and hubby added lettuce, tomatoes and sour cream. Made for a good weeknight meal. Made for ZWT5.
This made for a wonderful Mexican dinner last night!! I made this but used the spices that I use in Mexican Beef instead of the packet of taco seasoning. I also subbed refried beans, what I had on hand for the pinto beans, but otherwise followed as written. I made the meat mixture earlier in the day, so it was so quick and easy to get together once 17 yo DS got home. Thanks for sharing the recipe Charmie!! Made for ZWT5.
