Beefy Burritos

(2 Votes)
10 Min

Don't think of this one as lightweight. Uh uh! Sure, Beefy Burritos could be a snack or lunch, but you could say we "beefed" it up to make it work as a hearty dinner, too.

What You'll Need

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (10-ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 1 1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 4 (10-inch) flour tortillas, warmed

What to Do

  1. In a large nonstick skillet, brown ground beef, onion, and garlic over medium heat for 7 to 10 minutes, or until beef is no longer pink, stirring occasionally.
  2. Drain off excess liquid and stir in chili powder, cumin, and salt. Stir in spinach and heat through. Remove from heat and stir in cheese. Spoon mixture evenly onto center of warmed tortillas.
  3. Fold up bottom of each tortilla over beef mixture then both fold sides over, envelope fashion. Fold top closed and turn seam-sides down. Serve immediately.


Serve our Beefy Burritos topped with warmed salsa or any of your favorite toppings.

Would be more accurately named Beefy Spinach Burritos

NOTE: This is just my opinion only! Well, you had me at "Beefy Burritos"...then you lost me at "spinach"!! I'm starting to loose faith in the people that come up with these recipes! I guess there is something to say about variety....but spinach in a beefy burrito? -JOHN-
