Beef Burrito Supreme with Refried Beans

A burrito is a tortilla filled with beef, pork, or chicken. Burritos are a popular northern Mexican food. American style burritos are usually thick and contain a lot of other ingredients as well as the meat. A traditional Mexican burrito is thin and contains only meat.

Burritos are actually more common in the United States than in Mexico and few restaurants in central and south Mexico serve them unless they are catering to American tourists. This burrito supreme recipe contains plenty of mouthwatering ingredients such as onion, beans, tomato, and sour cream. This is a microwave recipe so it does not take long to cook.

Burritos are best served steaming hot and they make a great lunch or a snack at any time. If you are feeling especially hungry, you will probably appreciate a burrito supreme more than the authentic Mexican burritos, because there are plenty more ingredients in there to keep you satisfied for longer. It might seem like there are a lot of ingredients in this burrito recipe but it is well worth making because it is so delicious.

These burritos are generously filled with a spicy beef mixture which is perfect for warming you up, but it is also nice during the warmer months. Anytime is good for a burrito! Along with the spicy beef these burritos feature refried beans, enchilada sauce, lettuce, tomato, cheese, and sour cream. You can just imagine how delicious this is going to be.

These are thick and jam-packed full of lovely hot ingredients so you will need to serve them with cutlery. They are too hot and messy to pick up and eat with the fingers really. If you are a burrito fan, you will find this recipe really satisfies your craving for Mexican (or should we say Tex-Mex) food, and it is also an easy dish to make, something the whole family will be sure to really love.
