Beef Burritos

Back in January,  we started using www.emeals.com.  For $5 per month, you receive a weekly menu including a shopping list. They now also have an iPhone app for it.  No more worrying about what to cook for dinner or whether you have all of the ingredients on hand.  Not only that, but after almost 5 months of meals, there  have only been a handful of recipes that we haven’t liked.  Someday I promise I will do a more thorough review of it.  Tonight, however, we had one of our favorites. . .beef burritos.  I just thought I’d share the recipe as they are easy and delicious!

Brown 1  1/2 lbs ground beef with 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper, 1 Tbs minced garlic and 1 package of taco seasoning mix.

Drain.  Add in 1  1/2 cup salsa and 3 cups Mexican Blend shredded cheese.  The recipe also calls for a 15 oz can pinto beans, drained and mashed, but we are not pinto beans people.  It is delicious without the beans, but I’m sure it would also be good with. Mix well.

Spoon mixture into flour tortilla and fold.

Wrap each burrito in foil and bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees.

The great thing about this recipe is that you can throw them in the freezer and pull out an individual burrito whenever you want.  And they taste fabulous! Enjoy!
