Beef Beans & Cheese Burritos

Beef MixtureSo I had purchased a big package of flour tortillas from Costco, thinking I'd make some sort of wrap or whatever for Hubby. Something he can just take out of the freezer and nuke when he's busy and need a quick lunch/snack. Well...things don't always go as planned. It just never does. I'm flaky when it comes to planning out meals. I can't help it. :(

So instead, I just made some burritos for dinner. I can still freeze them, but they were too yummy. So I just took them for lunch instead of saving them for Hubby. WAHAHAHAHA!


Beef Beans & Cheese Burritos

Ingredients:
  • 1 - 1 1/2 lbs lean ground beef

  • 1 small onion, finely diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 Tbsps taco seasoning
  • 2 dashes of Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 Tbsps tomato paste
  • Salt & pepper, to taste
  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 8 12" flour tortillas

Beef Bean & Cheese BurritoDirections:
  1. In a large saucepan, heat up the oil and sauté the onions until translucent. Stir in the garlic and cook until fragrant. Add in the ground beef and brown.
  2. Stir in the taco seasoning, Worcestershire sauce and tomato paste. Lower the heat and simmer for 5-10 minutes until everything is cooked through and very little liquid remains. Set aside.
