Grilled burritos are a seasoned ground beef that is paired with black beans and rolled up in a flour tortilla and grilled in a pan. The tortilla offers a nice crispy texture.

Tex-Mex recipes are always a fun way to dress up dinner. Here are a few more busy weeknight recipes to try. 

Grilled Burritos

Quick, easy and best of all kid-approved! Throw this dish together any night of the week. 

Can I Use A Taco Seasoning Packet

If you don’t want to make your own taco seasoning blend go season beef, buy a packet. Either route works. 

You just want to season the meat for that southwest flavor spin. One packet of taco seasoning will work. 

Can I Substitute Beef

If you don’t want to cook with ground beef, swap it. Any ground meat or even shredded chicken could be used to replace the ground beef. 

Or if you want a meatless dish leave the meat out. You could even do a potato and bean style burrito.

Variations To Recipe

  •  Use low carb flour tortilla to lower carb count
  • Use any type of cheese or cheese blend. 
  • Add in diced avocado for a tasty addition. 
  • Use pinto beans instead of black beans.
  • Reach for store bought taco seasoning instead of all the spices 
  • Swap ground beef with another type of meat

What To Serve With Grilled Burritos

Not sure what to pair with these burritos? Chips and salsa, green salad, Mexican rice, Refried beans, etc. 

Eat your beefy grilled burritos alone or make one or more sides. 

Storing Leftovers

Because of the crispy flour shell these burritos are best fresh. You have two options on how to save leftovers. 

The first way would be to Store the filling in its own container and store in the fridge. Then when you get hungry, assemble and grill. 

This will get you that perfect tortilla texture and tastes just as good. 

The other method is refrigerating the burritos grilled already. Place in an airtight container and refrigerate them. Then reheat when you are hungry. 

Because of the grilled texture you will find it becomes softer once placed in the fridge. Still taste good, just softer in texture.

Can You Freeze 

You can freeze these beef grilled burritos. Just cook them up and grill the tortilla. When done, place on a cooling rack. Allow the burritos to cool down a bit. 

When cooked transfer to a freezer friendly container. I tend to roll then in aluminum foil and place in a freezer bag. 

Store for 2-3 months. You can unwrap and reheat from frozen in the microwave. Or if you want to do the oven just leave the aluminum foil on. Then reheat for 20 minutes or so to ensure the burrito is warmed up.
