Beef Burrito Skillet – 30 Minute Meal

You all know that I love simple meals that taste amazing, and this is a new favorite! A beef burrito skillet, no rolling them up, arranging them in a pan to bake. This is a one skillet meal, saving you time and clean up time.

We all really like burritos, but I don’t care for them through the week because I don’t want to work for it. I don’t want to wait for them to bake. I like simple. I like fast. I love easy clean up. So that’s what this is.

  • 1 lb ground beef

  • 1 jar of salsa
  • 1 can of beans

How to make Beef Burrito Skillet

Start by brown your ground beef, and cooking with your onions.

One your beef is cooked, drain off any and all fat, I rinse my ground beef under hot water to get any last grease off it. Put your skillet back on the burner (with your ground beef) and add in a cup of water, a jar of salsa, a can of beans, and your taco seasoning, we use our homemade seasoning.

You are also going to add sliced tortilla shells.
