Beef and Bean Burritos

I have been making these burritos for years. When I know I have a busy night ahead of me, I prep them in the morning and heat just before dinner. They are easy, filling, and delicious! The picture doesn’t do them any justice. I’m sorry for my photography skills! But your welcome for this family friendly recipe!

Beef and Bean Burritos


  • 1/2 of an onion chopped
  • olive oil
  • 3 pounds of lean ground beef
  • 2 cans(15 oz. each) of re-fried beans
    • I use the re-fried black beans because I love them. You can use whichever type that you prefer.
  • 1 jar of your favorite salsa
    • I highly recommend using homemade salsa for this recipe. It is easy and takes the burritos to a whole other level.
  • A block of Queso Fresco (Mexican Crumbling Cheese) or any shredded Mexican cheese you prefer.
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 8-10 flour tortillas
  • OPTIONAL:  sour cream and cilantro


  1. If making homemade salsa prepare that first.
  2. If using the block of crumbling cheese, crumble that now in a medium bowl so it is ready when needed.
  3. In a large skillet, saute the onion in olive oil until tender.
  4. Add the beef. Season with salt and pepper. Brown until done.
  5. Drain and return to the skillet.
  6. Add the beans and stir.
  7. Add 1/2 cup of the salsa to the meat mixture and stir.
  8. Add 1/2 cup of the cheese and stir.
  9. Cook on low for 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
  10. Set aside.
  11. Warm the tortillas 5 at a time in the microwave. Put on a plate and lay a slightly dampened paper towel on top. Microwave in 30-second bursts until they are warmed through.
  12. Lightly butter a baking dish.
  13. Place 2 large spoonfuls of the meat mixture in the middle of each tortilla.
  14.  Roll them up and place seam side down in the baking dish.
  15.  Top with the remaining salsa and cheese.
  16. Cover with foil.
  17. At this point you can either put it in the fridge for when you are closer to dinner time or bake right away. (Bake at 350 degrees until warm and bubbly.)
  18. Top with sour cream and chopped cilantro if you would like. Serve with your favorite chips and extra salsa!

I'm a stay at home mom and my life revolves around feeding my family of four. I love to cook for my husband Matt and two boys(Matthew-11 and Dominick-9). I'm not good at entertaining big crowds. That makes me nervous! I TRY and cook healthy meals, and I TRY to buy organic. Matt likes almost everything except for olives, mustard and fancy cheeses-everything I love)! So I try to find recipes without those ingredients or sneak them into the food I make and then he picks them out... And when he likes something, he has no control. Can't stop. Won't stop! But he really tries to make good choices in what he eats. In the last five years or so we both have made changes for the better in our diet. Matthew eats very little and is very picky. It's hard to watch him eat cause he's always picking! My mom get's so annoyed watching him eat! I was the same damn way as a kid. I tortured my parents by becoming a vegetarian for 7 years! I still can't eat all meat. I'm picky. Dominick loves almost everything! And when he loves it, you know it. It's all over him and the floor. Unlike Matthew. Not a single crumb.... I am 100% Italian-I think.. I grew up in Long Island and always ate really great food!!! While the other kids in school were bringing Lunchables or buying lunch, I was eating a chicken cutlet sandwich! My mom is an amazing cook. Much better than me. I have to pull recipes and follow them. She just whips stuff up in minutes and its amazing! And my dad loves all of her food, and all food in general! Except if its too healthy, like salmon.... Most of the time when he's eating his eyes are closed. He says he can taste it better that way... My sisters both live in Long Island and our conversations usually consist of food, fashion, beauty or kids. Ali is similar to my mom. She whips up delicious meals. And they are usually healthy and light. She says she doesn't eat carbs, which is a lie. Every weekend shes at the pork store picking up twisted Italian bread, sausages, and ravioli. Her eyes light up when her 2 year old Joseph eats. Her goal in life is to feed him. And she hates casseroles. Refuses to make them. Lol Jen is very busy as a dance mom with her two girls. But when she gets in the kitchen, watch out! She cooks up a storm. Her salads are the BEST ever! Usually, it's accompanied with steak and rice or fried chicken cutlets! And there are leftovers for the whole week. The goal of my blog is to share some of my family's favorite foods. I'll let you know what works out well and not so well for me when it comes to feeding the fam!
