I've made these for years, but I heat the beans in with the meat after the meat is browned. I also use salsa instead of taco seasoning, but either one is good. I add the cheese to the meat/bean mixture and it's the perfect one pan meal.

Easy and great recipe! I love recipes that I can follow exactly the first time I make it to give it a fair shot AND play with/add whatever pops in my head for follow-up cooking. If you do choose to add additional ingredients, be careful not to add to much or over stuff. I never thought I would live crunchy tortillas so much. Thanks for the recipe.

why the oil ? a Tortilla will brown great with out any added oil at all . when we make them at home we use our panini press works great.. i have also used a frying pan.. and NO oil of any kind

I make these, using salsa in the burritos, instead of taco seasoning mix. Plate them on a bed of shredded lettuce, for that authentic taqueria look!
