Beef Burrito Skillet

I was looking for something easy to make for dinner and in this house, Mexican is always a hit.  I took out some ground beef, some flour tortillas and made a quick burrito meal in the frying pan/skillet!



Here are my ingredients.  I of course forgot to include something so I took a picture of that once I figured it out!

I browned the ground beef in the skillet until it was fully cooked and the juices ran clear and then drained it.


I added the salsa, taco seasoning, smashed beans and water to the skillet, mixed it up and cooked it on medium high for about 6 – 8 minutes until it started to thicken.



Next I cut the flour tortillas into strips and chopped the green onion.

I covered the top of the beef mixture with the tortilla strips.


Sprinkled the grated cheese on top and then the chopped green onion.


I returned it to medium heat for another 5 minutes or so, until the cheese was melted and served it.  Would be great with a dollop of sour cream, but I was out.  What they don’t know won’t hurt them lol!


I served it with a nice salad and some crescent rolls.  Total time to make dinner…. less than a half hour.  Perfect for this time of year!
