Easy Beef Burritos


These burritos make for a super easy and yummy dinner, so I wanted to share it with you all.


  • 10-12 Flour Tortillas
  • 1lb ground beef
  • 1 Can Black Beans (drained)
  • 1/2 med onion finely diced ( I do this so my kids don’t see them!)
  • Hatch’s Green Enchilada Sauce
  • Monterrey/Colby Cheese (Shredded)
  • Optional: guacamole, sour cream, lettuce, tomato


Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In Skillet, sauté onions and beef until done.

Step 2: Add black beans to meat and stir until warmed just a few minutes.

Step 3: Pour a small amount of the green enchilada sauce on the bottom of a 9×13 baking dish. Fill tortillas with beef mixture, wrap and line in pan.

Step 4: Once pan is full, top burritos with green enchilada sauce and sprinkle top with cheese.

Step 5: Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes until warm and bubbly.

Optional: Serve with Spanish Rice, beans, guacamole, sour cream, shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes!

Note: This is a great freezer meal, just prepare the burritos as directed above, but instead of baking the finished burritos, freeze them! I use the disposable aluminum pans when freezing these. Then when you’re ready, just pull them out and thaw overnight. Bake as directed above!

    Hey Erica, were these flour or corn tortillas? looks yummy,thanks. Sounds like they'd be good with chicken too.

    Does anyone have any ideas on how to "hide" the beans? My daughter (3yo) L.O.V.E.S. tacos but refuses to have any of the beans in it, just meat, onions, and cheese.

    Beckie: I used flour tortillas, but you could probably use either :o)
