Beef and Bean Burritos


  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 1 can (15 oz) refried beans
  • 8 large flour tortillas
  • 1 cup shredded cheese (cheddar, Monterey Jack, or a blend)
  • Toppings: diced tomatoes, diced avocado, shredded lettuce, sour cream, salsa, chopped cilantro, etc.


  1. Cook the beef: In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the diced onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the minced garlic and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes. Add the ground beef to the skillet and cook, breaking it apart with a spoon, until browned and cooked through.
  2. Season the beef: Sprinkle the chili powder, ground cumin, paprika, cayenne pepper (if using), salt, and black pepper over the cooked beef. Stir well to combine and allow the spices to toast for 1-2 minutes.
  3. Warm the beans: In a separate saucepan, heat the refried beans over medium-low heat until warmed through.
  4. Assemble the burritos: Lay out the flour tortillas on a flat surface. Spread a generous spoonful of refried beans down the center of each tortilla. Top with a portion of the seasoned ground beef and a sprinkle of shredded cheese. Add any additional toppings of your choice.
  5. Roll up the burritos: Fold in the sides of each tortilla, then roll it up tightly from the bottom to enclose the filling.
  6. Serve: Serve the Beef and Bean Burritos immediately, with additional toppings on the side if desired.

Enjoy the comforting and flavorful goodness of these Beef and Bean Burritos, a satisfying meal that’s sure to please the whole family!
