Beef Burritos

Marie Gunkel


I came home and wanted to make Enchilada. When I realized I did not have any corn disks I decided to make burritos.

I did not want to make them with the usual,store bought seasoning. I wanted the flavor form my enchilada recipe.

I ended up with this as a filling for large soft shell tortillas. Known as burritos.

How to Make Beef Burritos


  • 1In a med size pan,cook ground meat until it is no longer pink, Drain off the fat. If your using the Chorizo cook this as well and drain off the fat. Then you could mix the two meats together. I just cook them separate because I like to brown the Chorizo more then the ground beef. optional

    While the meat is browning you can get the other items ready. Saves time.
  • 2Add Onion and Garlic to the cooked ground beef. Cook until onion is translucent.
  • 3Add Salt, Cilantro, paprika and, half of the drained tomatoes, Roasted Red Pepper, Worcestershire sauce, and Chipotle sauce, stir and let that get warm.
  • 4Put in the Queso Blanco cheese. Cut in to small chucks to help with melting. Stir until melted
  • 5Taste to see if you need to add anything else.
  • 6You can warm up the soft shells in the micro wave. I used the shells from off the shelf. You want them to be pliable.
  • 7Add about two or three tablespoons of mixture on to your shell. Spread it around. Top this with some shredded lettuce. About a handful.
  • 8Wrap it up. Place the 3 strips of cheese on top and place in microwave to melt the cheese on top.
  • 9Place some taco sauce, sour cream, tomatoes, and Cilantro on top and enjoy.
