Beef Burrito Skillet


This easy Beef Burrito Skillet is a one pot (or skillet) meal that can be made in less than 25 minutes start to finish. It’s Friday night fun or a weeknight lifesaver.




  • 1 lb Ground Beef
  • Taco Seasoning (see below)
  • 1 cup Salsa
  • 1/2 cup Water
  • 1 15-ounce can Black Beans, drained, rinsed
  • 5 Flour Tortillas, cut into 1-inch strips
  • 1 cup Shredded Cheese (I used a Mexican Blend)
  • Garnishes: Sour Cream, Green Onions


  • 1 teaspoon Chili Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Cumin
  • 1 teaspoon Onion Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Paprika
  • 1 teaspoon Black Pepper


  • 1/2 cup Chopped Tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup Chopped Onions
  • 2 teaspoons Olive Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Cilantro, chopped


In a small bowl whisk all the taco spice ingredients together and set aside.

In a medium-sized skillet over medium heat, brown the Ground Beef until no longer pink. Drain and return to heat. Stir in the Salsa, Water, and Black Beans and cook for 10 minutes. Remove from heat.

Add the Tortillas to the skillet and toss to mix in with the beef mixture. Top with Shredded Cheese and garnish with Sour Cream and Green Onions.


To make the homemade salsa mix all the ingredients together in a medium bowl.
