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!

Ingredients

Beef filling

  • 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

Tortilla

  • 550 g mozzarella cheese, divided equally (5 oz. per portion)

For Serving

  • 2 (about 8 oz each) tomatoes
  • 50 g leafy greens

Instructions

Beef filling

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.

Tortilla

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.

Assembly

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.

For serving

Serve burritos with fresh sliced tomatoes and leafy greens.

Tips

Taste great together with guacamole, sour cream and a spicy salsa dressing.
