Kpd's Awesome Retro Burritos, Tacos or Chimichangas
25 mins (prep 10, cooking 15)
15 ingredients
4 servings
This is my basic recipe for a Mexican ground beef mixture. This way everyone can make what they want: DH makes burritos, I make tacos or chimichangas, and DD makes what I call a fiesta bowl! I usually double the recipe so we can use the leftovers for a Nacho Night! If I'm low on time or spices, I'll just throw in a taco packet, no biggie! Please use your judgement on the seasonings: we like it spicy, so I actually use a lot more than written...if you prefer mild, go a little light initially and increase as necessary.
