Cheeseburger Burritos

I swear that every time I plan to grill out, it rains. Or at least it feels that way lately. I can’t remember the last time we’ve had so much rain!

A flour tortilla filled with cooked ground beef, lettuce, tomatoes, and pickles. It's cut in half so you can see the filling and stacked on a white, oval plate with curly fries.

It’s meant a few hiccups our meal plans. I was dreaming of burgers on the grill one night, but grilling in the pouring rain had zero appeal – so they became burger burritos instead. It wasn’t the juicy, grilled burger I was daydreaming about, but it was a good approximation for a rainy night – and my son loved them.

Directions

  • In a large skillet over medium heat, add the ground beef, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Cook, breaking up into small pieces, until browned. Drain the grease.
  • Stir in the onion, mustard, and ketchup. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Stir in pickles and cheese and remove from heat.
  • Divide the mixture between tortillas. Top with additional shredded cheese, tomatoes, lettuce, and pickles and roll up. Serve immediately.

This filling reheats really well, so it’s perfect to make ahead. Whether you’re cooking it up early to make dinner, or prepping it to use for quick lunches, this is a great choice! I love to chop my toppings into a separate container so they’re ready to go too.
