Beef and Bean Burritos

Happy Spring Friday!!

Joking. It's snowing here in Ottawa, I mean hailing, and raining....aka a royal mess on this supposedly spring day. What can make it better? Comfort food that is also moderately healthy and kid friendly! Seriously, this was quick, easy, and delicious and I will be making this one quite often from now on!

Adapted from Shirl's Awesome Easy Burritos
  • 1 lbs lean ground beef
  • 1-15 ounce can fat free refried beans
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 small zucchini, shredded (optional)
  • 3/4 to 1 cup of salsa
  • 1/2 to 1 cup of shredded cheese
  • 6 large whole wheat flour tortillas (or 10 small ones)
  • Topping ideas: cheese, avocados, tomatoes, salsa, sour cream etc...
  1. Cook the ground beef, onions, and zucchini, drain the excess fat.
  2. Stir in the refried beans, then the salsa. Add salt and pepper as needed. Heat through.
  3. Stir in the cheese, and heat until cheese is melted.
  4. In a warm tortilla, spoon in some beef filling, and desired toppings.
This was so good and the kids loved it!!
