  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 can rotel
  • 1 tablespoon taco seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 onion finely diced
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 6 large soft flour tortillas burrito size
  • 1 can refried beans
  • 2 cups cooked rice
  • 2 roma tomatoes deseeded and diced
  • 1/2 red onion finely diced
  • 2 cups iceberg lettuce shredded
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese


  • First, brown the ground beef.
  • Stir in the taco seasoning, salt, rotel and the onion and water until the onion is soft. Once the flavors are combined, remove from heat and set aside. You don’t want to fill the burrito when the meat is still steaming or the burrito will be soggy.
  • In another pan heat up the refried beans.
  • Begin assembling the burritos.
  • Place a burrito on a work surface. Spread with refried beans.
  • Next, add the rice and then a little of the meat mixture on top.
  • Finally, top with cheese, lettuce, tomatoes and red onion. 
  • Fold the ends in and roll up. 
  • Serve with our favorite hot sauce or salsa. 
  • Enjoy!
