I love skillet meals because anytime a dinner comes together with only one dish to wash, it’s good news to me. Plus, they’re just so cozy! This particular skillet meal takes all your favorite burrito components and marries them in one easy-to-make dinner that’s done in twenty minutes or less. How’s that for your next busy weeknight?
This burrito skillet is plenty beefy, but thanks to some black beans it’s an even heartier meal. Those friends simmer in some enchilada sauce and taco seasoning, so this is more reminiscent of a smothered burrito than anything else. (Super saucy and delicious!)
1 lb ground beef
1 (1 oz) package Old El Paso™ taco seasoning mix
1 cup water
1 cup chunky salsa
1 (15 oz) can black beans, rinsed and drained
4 (6 inch) Old El Paso™ Flour Tortillas, sliced into 1-inch strips
1 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup sliced green onions
In a large skillet, brown beef until no longer pink. Drain. Add taco seasoning, water, salsa, and beans. Cook over medium heat for 3-5 minutes or until the sauce thickens. Reduce heat to low.
Stir in the tortilla strips and then top with cheese. Remove skillet from heat and let cheese melt.
Top with sour cream in the center and sprinkle with green onions. Serve immediately.
Use a mild salsa if you’re making it for kids.
You can stack your tortillas and use a pizza cutter to slice them all in one easy step.
