Tasty Burritos Recipe

My cousin is of Mexican heritage, and I’ve watched her make these crunchy burritos for years. The very first time I made them for my own family, they became an instant favorite meal. They’re even better warmed up the next day in the microwave. —Debi Lane, Chattanooga, Tennessee
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 1 pound ground beef

  • 1 can (16 ounces) refried beans
  • 6 flour tortillas (12 inches), warmed

  • 4 teaspoons canola oil
  • Sour cream and salsa


  • 1. In a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Stir in taco seasoning. In a small saucepan, cook refried beans over medium-low heat for 2-3 minutes or until heated through.
  • 2. Spoon about 1/3 cup of beans off-center on each tortilla; top with 1/4 cup beef mixture. Sprinkle with cheese. Fold sides and ends of tortilla over filling and roll up.
  • 3. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, brown burritos in oil on all sides. Serve with sour cream and salsa.
