In trying to use up items in my pantry, I decided to make BURRITOS ON YESTERDAY FOR DINNER.

I only needed a few fresh ingredients to make the meal complete.

I used ground Chuck & mixed it with ground turkey. It is a simple meal, but the hardest part is all of the chopping of the veggies, which really isn't hard just a little time consuming.

They were tasty,& quite filling, I could only eat a half of one along with the roasted mixed vegetables that I made to go with them.

It was a great meal idea, in keeping with the theme of using from the pantry. You can use veggies that you like

2 lb
ground chuck
1 lb
lean ground turkey
2 pkg
taco seasoning mix (or seasoning of your choice)
4 medium
tomatoes, chopped
head lettuce, shredded finely
8 oz
finely shredded mexican cheese
1 medium
red onion,chopped or use green or what ever you prefer
2 pkg
large burritos (6 pk)
3 can(s)
refried beans
salsa, chunky (your choice)
sour cream ( i prefer daisy brand)



  • 1Combine Beef & Turkey in a large skillet.
  • 2Cook over medium high heat. Break up meat chunks as it cooks with a wooden spoon. When meat is fully cooked. Set a large colander over a large bowl, then drain meat into colander over the bowl to catch the excess fat.
  • 3Then pour meat back int skillet and add the taco seasoning, or which ever seasoning you are using along with 3/4 cups of water, then allow meat to simmer till liquid has been absorbed.
  • 4Prep and chop all the vegetables that will be used. Lettuce, tomatoes, onions, salsa, sour cream,cheese. I like to put all ingredients on a large platter. WE DO NOT CARE FOR CILANTRO, that is why none is used, but if you like it, by all means use it.
  • 5Heat beans, either in skillet or microwave. When heated you will then be ready to assemble your burritos.
  • 6Add one large flour tortilla to a flat surface, I used a large pizza pan. Then spread bean mixture on 1/2 side of tortilla, leaving the other side plain and empty.
  • 7Next Add Ground Beef
  • 8Then add Tomatoes
  • 9Add chopped onions
  • 10Add shredded cheese.
  • 11Add salsa & sour cream,
  • 12Top with shredded lettuce.
  • 13Then with the bottom end that is closest to you, pull bottom portion of burrito up and over all the filling mixture,being careful not to tear the bread.
    Then wrap as tightly as you can.
  • 14Until you have a COMPLETE ROLL.
  • 15With a serrated knife cut burrito on an angle and in HALF, MAKING IT MUCH EASIER TO GRASP & EAT.

    SERVE WITH YOUR FAVORITE SIDE ITEMS. Please note you can assemble your burrito any way you like, I just put all the ingredients inside the sandwich, instead of some on the side. Enjoy, and this is so tasty and filling.
