Tuesday Treats: Quick Fix Beef Burrito Skillet

Apparently, I’ve shared this recipe before but I’m doing it again. Why? because I have leftover corn tortillas that I need to do something with. This recipe popped up and lo and behold, I had a pic of it in my files. Just goes to show that my memory is…well…short. 🤣 Anyway, this is pretty darn yummy and can be made with stuff out of the pantry and freezer.

Total Time: 30 Minutes from prep to putting it on the table
4 servings

Enjoy the savory deliciousness of a beef burrito with the simplicity of a skillet dish—and do it in 30 minutes or less!

What You Need
1 lb. lean ground beef
1 pkg. (1 oz.) TACO BELL® Taco Seasoning Mix
1 can (15.5 oz.) no-salt-added red kidney beans, rinsed
1 cup TACO BELL® Thick & Chunky Salsa
1 cup water
4 flour tortillas (6 inch), cut into 1-1/2-inch pieces
1 cup KRAFT Mexican Style Finely Shredded Four Cheese
1/3 cup BREAKSTONE’S or KNUDSEN Sour Cream
1 large green onion, chopped

Let’s Make It
1 – Brown meat in large nonstick skillet on medium heat; drain. Return meat to skillet.
2 – Add next 4 ingredients; stir. Bring to boil; simmer on medium-low heat 5 min.
3 – Stir in tortilla pieces; top with cheese. Remove from heat; cover. Let stand 5 min. or until cheese is melted.
4 – Top with sour cream and onions.

Kitchen Tips
Tip 1 – Variation: Prepare using extra-lean ground beef, KRAFT Mexican Style 2% Milk Finely Shredded Four Cheese, and BREAKSTONE’S Reduced Fat or KNUDSEN Light Sour Cream.

Tip 2 – Special Extra: Add more of your favorite Mexican-style toppings, such as shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes and/or chopped avocados, before serving.

As always, CLICK HERE for all the nutritional details. Once again, it’s one of my Wolves raising his hand to volunteer. MSGT Hawkins “Hawk” Greenwood, the hero ofRESCUE MOON, says he whips up a skillet of this all the time. Of course, if his heroine and mate, Dana Peterson, is hungry, she has to grab her share first. 😉 Dana, an anthropologist and former prep school teacher, was kidnapped by a Mexican drug cartel. Hawk was sent by the government to save her, with a little help from CPT “Ghost” Bryson’s Delta Force team, part of Susan Stoker’s Operation Alpha series. If you haven’t read their exciting story, grab RESCUE MOON now. Read it free with Kindle Unlimited, or $2.99 if you want it for your keeper shelf. It’s also available in paperback. Just sayin’… 🙂

  1. Sounds yummy. Thanks!

      I’m all about the yummy and the easy these days. And since I’m a fan of Tex-Mex, I almost always have the ingredients on hand. 😆

      And yeah, RESCUE MOON was a fun one to write! And it was the book that introduced my Wolves to a whole new group of readers. Interestingly, I got some new fans who’d never read a paranormal in their lives. Total win for me! And them. 😉
