Last week I shared a simple enchilada dip recipe for my new 5 ingredients or less series. I love sharing quick and easy recipes, so I am very excited about this new series.
Today I have an easy 5 ingredient burrito recipe for you.
My kids love these and I love how easy they are to make. These are so easy to make that they would be great cooking with kids meal.
These would also make a great freezer meal. You can freeze the filling on its own. Or you can make them as burritos and fill up a pan of them to put in the freezer for that busy evening when you need a quick meal.
This recipe also calls for basic ingredients that most of you will have on hand. Yes, this is an easy five-ingredient recipe that uses everyday ingredients.
This recipe does call for chili beans, which I think is a pretty basic ingredient for most people. If it isn’t, you might consider adding it to your pantry staples. They are a simple way to add a lot of flavor to meals.
I was asked recently which chili beans I use because not all chili beans are gluten-free. Bush’s Chili Beans are gluten-free, so that is the brand I use. I know there are a lot of other brands of chili beans, but I stick to Bush’s since they are gluten-free. And can I just say I love that all of Bush’s Beans products are now gluten-free. (That is not sponsored at all. I love the fact that their products are gluten-free and just want to let readers know.)
Now for the recipe. If you need a quick and easy meal for tonight, these are the perfect meal to make.
- 1 pound lean ground beef
- 1- 15 ounce can chili beans
- 1 cup salsa
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 8 tortillas, use gluten free tortillas for gluten free version
- In a skillet brown beef until done.
- Drain off any fat.
- Stir in chili beans and salsa.
- Cook over medium low heat until heated through.

For gluten free version use gluten free tortillas and read labels to be sure ingredients like chili beans are gluten free.
