How to make


burritos Burritos are one of my favorite foods (along with chicken enchiladas) and when I set my eyes on these amazing burritos, I knew I had to have them. These meat burritos take a few steps, but they are not difficult to do and most of the time is spent without hands.

  1. Combine beef, onions, peppers and seasonings in a slow cooker. Cook until fork is tender.
  2. Shred the beef and combine with the sauce.
  3. Place tortillas with cheese and refried beans (add rice or any other add-on you want).

Bake or crispy Be

sure to wrap the burritos tightly to keep everything inside. Now that the burritos are ready, you can eat them as is, bake them, or add them to a pan to crunch the outside.

For crispy burritos

  • : Wrap burritos tightly. Brush a nonstick skillet with olive oil and place the seam of the burrito side down over medium heat. Cook until crispy and flip. Once all sides are crispy, serve warm with toppings.
  • Baking wet burritos: This is my favorite way to serve burritos. Place stuffed burritos sewing down in a 9×13 casserole. Top with sauce (from slow cooker) and cheese. Bake until hot.
