Quick and Easy Beef and Rice Burritos

There are some that will tell you that just opening and mixing cans together is not really cooking! I am not one of those people...and this recipe will prove it! This is one of those recipes that was created on a Sunday afternoon when I needed to feed a big group of people and I hadn't been to the store for a while and VOILA! It now gets made frequently in our house because it's fast, the kids eat it well, and we always have the ingredients on hand! This makes a big pan-full so you can feed a big group or it reheats great for lunch the next day! If you have had a long day but still want something yummy this might be just what you need. I don't know if I've just lived in the southwest too long now or what but a warm flour tortilla is like the best comfort food ever!

Beef and Rice Burritos
1 lb. ground beef
2 cups cooked rice
1 taco seasoning packet (sometimes I only use 1/2...just depends on my mood)
1 cup salsa (I use a chunky type salsa so it adds onion and bell pepper pieces to the mix!)
1 can corn (drained)
1 can tomato with green chilies (I use Rotel) (drained)
1 can black beans (drained)
shredded cheddar cheese (to top)
sour cream (to top)

In a large skillet or electric frying pan cook beef and drain. While beef is cooking, prepare rice according to package directions. Add cooked rice to beef. Add taco seasoning, salsa, corn, Rotel, and black beans. Mix thoroughly and cook until heated. Warm tortillas in the microwave so that they will roll easier. Put beef and rice mixture in tortillas along with shredded cheese and sour cream and wrap into burritos. Enjoy!


  1. We have this kind of thing often! It's never the same twice. :-) I often include refried beans in mine instead of rice, or a different kind of bean.

    Oh, and opening cans is pretty much how I cook .. unless I'm making pancakes; then I open up the Krusteaz. LOL

  2. This is perfect for this week. Thanks.
