Kid Beef Burrito

My childhood neighbor’s mom use to have pre-made beef burritos in her frig at all times. She had two boys, one of which is still my best friend. Anyways, love this idea and they are super easy to prep plus you can pull a few out and pop em in the microwave and you have yourself lunch or a quick meal before practice.

I’ve been making these for awhile and thought they would be a great addition to the kid lunch series.

You can use shredded cheese. I always have cooper on hand because my youngest loves it.

1 lb. ground beef- 90/10

1/4 cup of finely diced onion

1 packet of taco seasoning

1/2 cup water

Pack of tortillas

6-8 slices of cooper cheese

1 teaspoon of oil

Place oil in a skillet on medium heat. Add onion and cook for 3 minutes. Add ground beef and cook until no longer pink.

Add seasoning and water and let simmer for 5 minutes. Mince the meat with a wooden spatula. Let meat cool.

Lay out tortillas and add a slice of cheese to each one. Spoon meat on top of cheese then roll up the burrito. Do the sides first and wrap with cling wrap.

Makes six to eight burritos.

Place them in refrigerator and when ready to serve cook in microwave for 35 seconds.
