“Hola Amigos! This recipe is mui bueno! A healthy and easy recipe that adults and kids will both love. You can replace the ground beef with a vegetarian meat alternative or chicken. Also, you may want to add peppers when you add the tomatoes to the beef. Serve this with the crunchy veggies listed to catch the sauce and add some cold crunch to your hot burritos. NOTE: this is a big meal and might be too much for some people. My DH and I were hungry and ate our 2 burritos but our DS's could only eat 1 1/2 and were stuffed. Enjoy!”
8 burritos

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown ground beef in nonstick pan over medium for 5 minutes. Add taco seasoning and water and simmer for 20 minutes or until water has evaporated. By doing this, you infuse the taco seasoning into the ground beef and it tastes great!
  2. Add sour cream, salsa and tomatoes and stir until heated through.
  3. Divide mixture between 8 soft tortillas, approximately 1/2 cup each.
  4. Spray shallow casserole dish with nonstick spray.
  5. Roll up tortillas - fold the sides in first until almost touching. Then roll the tortilla and place seam side down in pan to ensure that filling does not run out. Sprinkle evenly with cheese.
  6. Cover pan with foil and bake at 350F for approximately 25 minutes, until cheese has melted and burritos are heated through.
  7. Place 1/4 of the lettuce and on each plate and top with 1/4 of tomatoes.
  8. Place 2 burritos on top of fresh veggies on each plate.
