Easy Beef Burritos are one of those recipes you are going to want to save for those beyond crazy days when you need something to impress the kids and you need it in a hurry! These are always a hit at my house!
Recipe type: Easy, Dinner, Lunch, Main Dish, Microwavable
Cuisine: Mexican
Serves: 8
  • 1 can refried beans
  • 1 pound ground beef, browned
  • 1 package taco seasoning
  • 8 flour tortillas (see note)
  • 1 cup grated chedder cheese (more is always better!)
  • sour cream, optional
  • chopped cilantro, optional
  • diced tomatoes, optional
  1. Ground beef and add a package of taco seasoning as package directs. Like I said this is almost always already done and sitting in my fridge which makes this process more like 5 minutes from beginning to end!
  2. Lay tortillas out flat, use as many as you have hungry people to feed!
  3. Open a can of refried beans and spread some beans down the edges of each tortilla.
  4. Spoon ground beef over beans.
  5. Sprinkle lots of cheese on top. You could use pepper jack, Colby jack, Monterey Jack, or good old cheddar. Just use lots!
  6. Tuck the edges over and roll them up.
  7. Place burritos seam side down on a microwavable plate.
  8. Microwave for a minute, or until cheese is melted and burrito is warmed through.
  9. Garnish with sour cream, cilantro and tomatoes if desired.
  10. NOTE:
  11. This recipe is easy to make a few or several burritos at one time. If I'm making just a few and have leftover beef and beans I stick them in the fridge for another day.
