Beef Burrito Skillet Recipe Tips

Ground turkey can be substituted for ground beef.

Instead of using black beans, you can use pinto beans or you can stir in a half can of refried beans.

Corn tortillas can be used instead of flour.

A small can of corn makes another great addition to this one pot dinner. Drain it and it it to the skillet when you stir in the beans.

I like to use a ground beef chopper to help crumble the ground beef.

For a quick and easy meal, you can’t beat this Easy Beef Burrito Skillet. It’s a wonderfully filling and satisfying dinner.
