Smothered Beef Burritos

I’ve mentioned several times before we don’t eat out a lot. It’s usually only a couple of times a month and that includes fast food. I like the smothered steak burritos from Taco Bell but I’m not a fan of the price so I came up with these smothered beef burritos.

Taco Bell inspired Smothered Beef Burritos

I like making my own copycat recipes or restaurant inspired recipes at home. You don’t have to deal with crowds or even leave your house. You could  eat dinner in your pajamas if you wanted because you’re around family or friends


These aren’t exactly like the fast food version because they don’t have rice because I served them with green chile and cheese rice and didn’t want to make two separate rice dishes. If you already have the slow cooker spicy shredded beef on hand these can be whipped up in mere minutes making these an absolutely perfect weeknight meal.

These would be perfect served with some chips and quick and easy salsa, green chile and cheese rice, arroz con tomate or Mexican rice, and a nice tall glass of sweet tea.
