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
  • 1/2
    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)



  1. Combine Beef & Turkey in a large skillet.
  2. Cook 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.
  3. Then 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.
  4. Prep 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.
  5. Heat beans, either in skillet or microwave. When heated you will then be ready to assemble your burritos.
  6. Add 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.
  7. Next Add Ground Beef
  8. Then add Tomatoes
  9. Add chopped onions
  10. Add shredded cheese.
  11. Add salsa & sour cream,
  12. Top with shredded lettuce.
  13. Then 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.
  14. Until you have a COMPLETE ROLL.
  15. With 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.
