When we lived in Arizona, we called "burritos", "burros". I thought everyone did that. So the first time I ordered a "burro" after we moved to California, the waitress thought I was nuts. I conformed to the Cali way while I was there but I always revert back to "burro" when we go to Arizona. "Burros" are all over Mexican food restaurant menus there so they don't think I'm crazy. Not much any way. Whatever you call them, make sure you try these. They're terrific. And it's easy to switch up the insides to suit your preferences!!
2 pounds ground beef
1 medium onion ~ diced
1 packet taco mix (or homemade, 3 tablespoons)
1 10-ounce can Rotel tomatoes ~ do not drain
1 - 2 cups frozen corn
1 15-ounce can refried beans (optional)
1 15-ounce can black beans (optional)
1 cup cooked rice (optional)
2 cups grated cheese
In a large skillet, fry the ground beef with the onion. Drain.
Add taco mix, tomatoes and corn (and refried beans, if using). Stir to combine.
Allow to simmer for 20 minutes.
Add grated cheese on top and allow to melt, then stir through.
Heat a large flour tortilla in the microwave for 15 seconds and add 1 cup meat mixture.
Add salsa, guacamole or sour cream, if desired.
Fold tortilla around filling. Repeat until all filling is used.
You can also fry or bake these after you fold them to make chimicangas!!
Makes about 10 burritos/burros
Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!
