One Pan Smothered Beef Burrito Skillet Recipe - Family Fresh Meals

Are you ready for another family favorite? Here’s a new recipe for One Pan Smothered Beef Burrito Skillet. At least, I call them burritos, but they’re really like a cross between burritos and enchiladas. So they’re, what, burri-chiladas? Enchila-ritos? Whatever, it’s all good.

These start out like your basic beef burrito. You brown the ground beef with garlic and onions, and spice it up with some taco seasoning. Then you roll it up in a flour tortilla with refried beans, rice, and cheese.

So far, it’s all pretty simple, right? But now comes the twist: you load those burritos, seam side down, into a skillet, and bake them. So all the flavors – beef, beans, spices – start soaking and spreading through into the rice and the tortillas. And then, about ten minutes from the end, you pull out the pan and smother it in red enchilada sauce and cheese.

By the time the pan comes back out of the oven, what started out as plain burritos will be tender and flavorful, soaked with the spicy enchilada sauce and oozing with hot, melted cheese. Dress them up with a little chopped cilantro and lime, and you’ve got all your favorite Mexican flavors in one dish.

  1. Technically, they would be burritos since they are made with flour tortillas.

    Excellent! I followed the recipe except for I used Spanish Rice instead of white rice. This is a keeper! I must say I was a little worried because my husband is not a rice person or a red sauce person when it comes to his burritos – but he loved these. Thank you for the recipe. I also commented on Pinterest about them.

  5. Can you leave out the rice? Can you substitute red sauce for green sauce?
    Thank you

    1. If you leave out the rice, I would maybe add in more beef mixture or beans to bulk up the burrito. You can sub in red sauce as well 🙂
