Tasty Burritos

I can’t remember exactly how I came across this recipe. I think it came in an email or something from Taste of Home. It’s a quick and easy recipe. There really isn’t anything exciting about the ingredients.

However, the way you cook this burrito is different, you fry it. So I think this is technically a chimichanga, but who cares what you call it, it’s good. Give this quick and easy recipe a try. (It’s even quicker if you already have taco meat)

  • These are very good! I heat some chili with no beans, melt some Velveeta, chop up some jalapenos and have sliced black olives to use as toppers for ours.

  • These were very tasty! Have you experimented with other ingredients for the filling besides beans, beef & cheese?

    Also, this didn’t throw me off, but it might a very beginner….you might want to include the step of adding 3/4 cup of water to the taco seasoning and beef mixture.

    Thanks for the tasty recipes!

  • These are fabulous! Even my kids love them and they are pretty picky eaters.

  • oooh, I've made these before–my BF calls them "Grilled Stuffed Burrito (from Taco Bell) imitators"!

  • Great idea! The browning makes them look so much more tasty!

  • yum! my mom always made these and i make them for my kids. they are so quick, easy and delicious

  • we make this all the time because they're so budget friendly! it's also good with a little bit of spinach inside.
