    Brandess's Note:

    I was surprised to see that there are so many burrito casseroles on Zaar, but no one has posted an actual beef burrito recipe. Here is my recipe for the much loved Ground Beef Burrito! The key to this burrito in achieving that authentic Mexican flavor and mouth feel, is in the method for cooking the ground beef. If you decide to brown your ground beef or follow the directions on the spice package, you will end up with a totally different product.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 8


    whole b ...

    Units: US | Metric


    • 1 lb 90% lean ground beef
    • 1 5/8 ounces dry burrito mix (1.62 ounce package McCormick Burrito Seasoning Mix. Can substitute with Taco Seasoning Mix - the Best!)
    • 3/4-1 cup water, warm (Up to 1 cup. The more water added, the longer cooking time to boil it down.)



    1. 1
      With your clean hands start by adding 3/4 to 1 cup of warm water and the burrito seasoning packet in a large pot. Place the raw hamburger in the liquid and use your hands to break all down so there are no chunks. Bring the mixture to a full boil then reduce the heat and allow to simmer, stirring occasionally, until all the liquid has been absorbed.
    2. 2
      Place a tortilla on a plate and cover with a damp towel. Microwave on high for 15 seconds. Remove tortilla from the microwave, uncover. Slightly off center of the tortilla, spread on 2 tablespoons of sour cream on the tortilla. Place 1/4 of the ground beef on top of the sour cream. Place 1/4 cup of the cheese blend on top of the ground beef. Sprinkle on tomatoes and green onions. Top with 2 tablespoons of Authentic Mexican Salsa.
    3. 3
      Fold the front of the tortilla over the filling. Tuck the left and right sides of the tortilla inside as you roll. Roll the belly on top of the back so the weight of the filling holds it together. Use a small piece of masking tape if necessary, but remember to use only edible tape. : ).

      These were great! We will definitely be having these again. Next time I may add a few things to the burrito to make it more interesting (rice, black olives, some re-fried beans) but I will never make meat for a burrito another way and am looking forward to trying meat like this on tacos and in enchiladas as well. Thanks!

      I loved the texture of this meat and the way it tasted. I will definitely make this again and probably use this method anytime I make 'taco meat'. Thanks for sharing!---- Edited to say that I made this last night using ground turkey and it was also delicious! What a great method. I also started using the leftover meat, mixed with some chili beans, green chilies, salsa etc for the chili/bean mixture on top of nachos. Its perfect! Like an order from the pub!----
