ground beef (96% lean)
red bell pepper, chopped
onion, finely chopped
ground ancho chile powder
finely chopped fresh cilantro
reduced-fat shredded Mexican cheese blend or shredded Cheddar cheese
spinach or plain flour tortillas (10-inch diameter), warmed
Lime-Cilantro Cream (optional):
fresh lime juice
Everyone in my household enjoyed these. The recipe left off the sour cream for the lime-cilantro cream, but after checking around, I found it was suppose to be 1/2 cup sour cream mixed with the cilantro and lime juice. I doubled the recipe and used extra cheese (we love cheese). This would be really good with potatoes added in as well. :)
Holy cow, silly pun intended Natl. Cattlemen's Beef Assoc., these burritos were delicious! I used hand ground beef sirloin and stayed true to the rest of the recipe. Very tasty, pretty presentation, kid friendly, company worthy, economical meal. The spinach wraps are a must. The lime cilantro cram really gives this dish a nice adult taste. I don't think most kids would like it if they're anything like my grandsons. We would definitely have these again but for our tastes, we'd double the ground seasoning.
We liked this breakfast burrito. I save a few ingredients and used Johnsonville Breakfast links for the meat. They didn't need seasoning, so I paired the sausage with the cilantro and eggs and topped with cheese and salsa. It was quick and easy!
This is good, no doubt about it, but I like the pork-based breakfast burrito recipes better.
