  • 1 Recipe Ground Beef Taco meat
  • 8 Medium fajita size  or 6 Large (burrito size) flour tortillas--I use Mission Brand
  • 1 16 oz can refried beans
  • 1 16 oz package shredded cheese; use your favorite kind! We like Mexican cheese blend. 

Customize your burrito with your favorite add-ins:

  • Sour Cream
  • Sliced avocado or Easy Homemade Mexican Guacamole
  • Diced tomatoes
  • Shredded lettuce
  • Sliced Black Olives
  • Sliced jalepeños
  • Your favorite salsa or this Taco Sauce it’s a Taco Bell copy-cat


  • Prepare Ground Beef Taco meat and keep warm over low heat.
  • Empty refried beans into a small saucepan and heat over medium. Or, heat beans is a microwave safe bowl until hot.
  • Prepare any add-ins and have them near your work area.
  • Heat the tortillas over a hot skillet or griddle. Remove from heat and keep them warm in a clean kitchen towel.
  • Place one tortilla on a plate. Smooth 2-3 tablespoons of refried beans in the center.
  • Add about ⅓ cup taco meat on top of the beans.
  • Sprinkle about ¼ cup shredded cheese over the taco meat.
  • Continue layering your desired add-ins.
  • Wrap tortilla up, then drizzle with more Mild Taco Sauce that’s been warmed up.
