Recipe Notes

  • Substitute ground chicken or turkey for the ground beef.
  • If you prefer, use corn tortillas (they're gluten-free).
  • Use mild, medium or hot salsa depending on your family's preferences.
  • Store leftovers in a container in the refrigerator for up to three days.

Here's how to make it:

  1. Brown the ground beef in a skillet. Add the taco seasoning and salsa and cook about 4 to 5 minutes.
  2. Put the refried beans into a bowl. Microwave for 1 to 2 minutes or until warm. 
  3. Spread some of the beans on a tortilla. Add some of the ground beef mixture and sprinkle with cheese. Fold up to create a burrito. Repeat with remaining tortillas.
  4. Heat the oil in a skillet. Cook the burritos until browned on both sides.
