This easy, delicious rice skillet filled with burrito ingredients is sure to be a hit at your next fiesta or weeknight dinner.
Some of my best recipes are unplanned and this is one of them. I started with the intention of making beef burritos, but prepping all of the different components was just too time consuming and messy. There’s the cilantro lime rice…then the black beans…then seasoned beef… and pico de gallo, not to mention assembling all of those ingredients neatly in a flour tortilla. I thought, why not cook all of those ingredients in one skillet?
All of the sudden my beef burrito recipe was taken to another level. You won’t miss any of that hassle with this Beef Burrito Rice Skillet since it’s made in only one skillet and ready in under 30 minutes. It makes the perfect weeknight meal or part of your next fiesta!
For this recipe, I picked up some RO*TEL from Walmart. RO*TEL is here to banish the bland and help make a bold break from everyday routine. It’s versatile enough to be used in different recipes – I add it to queso dips, chills, and soups, and used it in this recipe to give it some extra favor.
Finally, top the burrito skillet with your favorite burrito ingredients. For me, shredded cheese, diced avocado, and fresh cilantro are must. No matter how you top it, I know you’re going to love the flavors of this dish!
