Fast Skillet Burrito Recipe: This 20-Minute Deconstructed Ground Beef Burrito Recipe Is a Dinner Winner

Love burritos but don't want to stuff, wrap and roll? This easy ground beef burrito skillet recipe tastes just like a burrito without all the work. It cooks in one pan and is on the table in 20 minutes. It immediately earned its place in my recipe binder that's pretty hard to get in these days. Definitely a keeper for a quick dinner

Cuisine: Mexican
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 6


Here's how to make it: 

  1. Brown the ground beef and onion in a skillet until meat is cooked through. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Add the taco seasoning, water, salsa and green chiles. Cook about 3 minutes.
  3. Cut the flour tortillas into strips.
  4. Add the beans, tortilla strips and 1 cup of the cheese.
  5. Stir until the cheese melts. You can serve immediately or pop it under the broiler for 1 to 2 minutes to melt the cheese and slightly brown the top. (I broiled mine, but it would be fine to skip this step.)
  6. Serve with desired toppings.
