If you’re craving cheese, this 5-ingredient cheesy burrito is something else. Take a bite into this crusty masterpiece filled with Tex-Mex goodness, it’s one of our best-kept secrets! Tell your friends, there’s a new burrito in town!
- 110 g yellow onions, finely chopped
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 450 g ground beef or ground turkey
- 3 tbsp Tex-Mex seasoning
- salt to taste
- 550 g mozzarella cheese, divided equally (5 oz. per portion)
- 2 (about 8 oz each) tomatoes
- 50 g leafy greens
Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan, over medium-high heat. Sauté the onions until they become tender, and then add the ground beef, salt, pepper, and Tex-Mex seasoning. Stir to combine. Keep warm over low heat.
Heat up another large pan (non-stick) over medium heat. Evenly spread one portion of the cheese over the base of the pan, forming a circle, about 8-9″ (20-22 cm) in diameter. Leave for 2-3 minutes, or until bubbly.
Spread one portion of the beef filling down the center of the cheese tortilla, and reduce the heat to low. When the edges become golden, slide a spatula underneath two opposite edges, folding over about 1.5″ (4 cm) toward the center, and then wrap the other two sides over the beef filling, as done with a traditional burrito. Repeat the process for each serving.
Serve burritos with fresh sliced tomatoes and leafy greens.
Taste great together with guacamole, sour cream and a spicy salsa dressing.
