If you have left over taco meat and beans this makes a nice snack or quick lunch / dinner. Even "building" from scratch doesn't take very long and it is different from regular tacos / burritos. Surprisingly good.

How to Make Frito Burritos


  1. If you have left over taco meat & beans (that's the way I usually make these) go ahead and combine meat & beans, reheat mixture and build your burritos.
  2. From scratch: Cook ground beef until no longer pink. Drain off fat. Add el pato tomato sauce. Simmer. Heat refried beans in separate pot, add cheese.
  3. Combine meat and bean mixture. Gently heat tortilla shells in microwave.
  4. Place meat and bean mixture in center of flour tortilla shell. Add a ribbon of Queso sauce.
  5. Add any other ingredients you would like, extra cheese, left over rice, etc. Sprinkle on several Fritos strips and roll into a burrito shape. Heat in microwave until hot.
  6. Top with sour cream, guacamole, taco sauce, etc. Enjoy! (Tastes just like the ones they sell at the Taco Store!)
