When you’re out of dinner options, go simple. Make delicious and hearty beef burritos — you won’t be sorry. 

Ingredients

  • 1/2 Pound extra-lean ground beef
  • 2 Tablespoons chili powder
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste
  • 1 can of black beans, rinsed
  • 2/3 Cups sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 4 flour tortillas, warmed
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • 1 Cup romaine lettuce, chopped
  • Salsa, for serving
  • Sour cream, for serving

Directions

Cook meat with beans, chili powder, salt, and pepper in large skillet on medium-high heat for 10 minutes or until meat is done, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Stir in cheese.

Beef Shopping Tip

Most cattle are fed a diet of grass until they are sent to a feedlot – where they are finished on corn. When possible, choose beef from cattle that are “100% grass fed” - it will be more expensive, but better for your health.

Beef Cooking Tip

The method used to cook beef is dependent on the cut. Cuts that are more tender, like filet mignon, should be cooked for a relatively short amount of time over high heat by grilling or sautéing. While less tender cuts, like brisket and short ribs, should be cooked for a longer time with lower heat by braising or stewing.
