Quick Fix Skillet Burrito

I saw this recipe on a few different blogs, but it originated at Kraft Kitchens, an awesome recipe website!! (That's where the picture came from, too) It's yummy and potentially very economical!! I served it with corn on the side and Zac pointed out that the corn would be good stirred in with the beans.


1 lb ground beef
1 packet Taco Seasoning
1 can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup salsa
1 cup water
4 flour tortillas, cut in 1 1/2 inch squares
1 cup shredded cheese
Sour cream, guacamole, lettuce, tomato (optional garnishes)


Brown meat and drain. Add taco season, beans, salsa and water.

Bring to a boil, reduce heat and let simmer for 5- 10 minutes, till it starts to thicken.

Stir in tortillas, top with cheese. Cover and let sit for 5 minutes or until cheese in melted.
TIP: Stir the tortillas in a few at a time, to avoid them clumping together.

Garnish with sour cream, tomato, lettuce and guacamole - whatever you wish. We didn't have any of these and it tasted great without!
