cheesy beef burritos

Cheesy beef burritos are a delicious and satisfying meal that combines seasoned ground beef with melted cheese, wrapped in a warm tortilla. Here’s a simple recipe to make them:


  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 packet (about 2 tablespoons) taco seasoning mix
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 8 large flour tortillas
  • Optional toppings: diced tomatoes, shredded lettuce, diced avocado, sour cream, salsa, chopped cilantro


  1. In a large skillet, cook the ground beef over medium-high heat until browned and no longer pink, breaking it up with a spoon as it cooks.
  2. Add the chopped onion and minced garlic to the skillet with the ground beef. Cook for a few minutes until the onion is soft and translucent.
  3. Stir in the taco seasoning mix and water. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the sauce thickens and coats the beef.
  4. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
  5. Warm the flour tortillas in the microwave for a few seconds to make them more pliable.
  6. Place a spoonful of the beef mixture onto the center of each tortilla, then sprinkle some shredded cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese over the beef.
  7. Roll up the tortillas, folding in the sides as you go, to form burritos. Place the burritos seam-side down on the prepared baking sheet.
  8. Sprinkle additional shredded cheese over the tops of the burritos, if desired.
  9. Bake the burritos in the preheated oven for about 10-15 minutes, or until the tortillas are golden brown and the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  10. Remove the burritos from the oven and let them cool slightly before serving.
  11. Serve the cheesy beef burritos hot, garnished with your favorite toppings such as diced tomatoes, shredded lettuce, diced avocado, sour cream, salsa, and chopped cilantro.

Enjoy your delicious cheesy beef burritos! They’re perfect for a quick and satisfying meal for lunch or dinner.
