Sticking with my New Years resolution to simplify when possible, I have a easy peasy simple smothered beef burritos recipe. We are talking 5 ingredients here folks! We are talking burritos that could not be easier!
You have the basics in there of ground beef, flour tortillas, and shredded cheese. Then the dish gets all of it’s flavor from the remaining 2 ingredients – green enchilada sauce and salsa verde. These and combined and used together to flavor the beef that is inside the burrito. Then it is also used to smother the outside of the burrito too. Cheese is also found inside and on top of these burritos. Just bake uncovered in a 350 degree oven for about 10-15 minutes. Just long enough to warm everything and melt that cheese.
My family is fans of Mexican dishes and they also loved these simple smothered beef burritos! I hope you do too. Only thing is next time, I think I will add some chopped onion when cooking the beef. This will just add another layer of flavor to the filling.
