Mr. Buckshot’s Beef And Bean Burrito Recipe

These burittos are very good and so simple to make.

Check out what my pals over at The Pioneer Woman had to say about this recipe:

” Then I got my second wind and made them (the boys) beef and bean burritos, which took exactly sixteen minutes to get on the table. And I cracked up, reflecting that it was but the first of what will surely be a week-long fest of brown and plentiful food.”

All mothers of boys need a second wind haha!



2 pounds Ground Beef

1/2 whole Medium Onion

1 can (7 Ounce) Mexican Tomato Sauce Or Enchilada Sauce

Salt And Pepper, to taste

Cumin, Oregano, Chili Powder, Garlic To Taste

1 can (28 Ounce) Refried Beans

3/4 cups Grated Cheddar Cheese

12 whole Burrito-sized Flour Tortillas

Extra Grated Cheese, For Sprinkling

Extra Sauce, For Drizzling

Cilantro Leaves (optional)

Optional Filling Ingredients: Mexican Rice, Sour Cream, Guacamole, Green Chilies, Pico De Gallo



Brown ground beef with onion and season to taste. Pour in sauce and simmer over low heat. Add water if mixture gets too dry.

Heat refried beans in a saucepan. Add cheese and stir in till melted. Keep warm.

Heat tortillas in microwave for one minute.

Spread a small amount of beans on each tortilla. Add meat. Fold over ends, then roll up. Place two burritos on a microwave-safe plate. Drizzle red sauce over the top and sprinkle with more grated cheddar. Microwave for one minute, or until cheese is melted and burritos are very hot. Serve immediately.




Quick Tip: Serve these yummy burritos with sour cream and salsa.

Thank you to TPW for this great recipe.


To make a dinner out of these I like to make a bed of loosely chopped iceberg lettuce, tomatoes and olives. Green or black olives can be used but I really like the sharp flavor that green olives add. Sprinkle a little more cheese over that and lay the hot burritos on top. Then of course you can add sour cream, a few crushed nacho chips, cilantro or more of the other options mentioned in your recipe or whatever you desire. You can use any rice for the bed as well.
