Homemade Burrito Recipe

Updated on June 14, 2012
5 stars from 1 rating of Burritos

Growing up, we always had homemade tacos (without the hard taco shell, they were more or less burritos), and I still make them about once a week today. Now, I know that there’s no huge culinary secret to making your own (I know most people who make them at home have their own ways and ingredients), but I thought I’d share the way I like to make them. Of course, you can always get one from a restaurant or food truck, but if you get the right stuff it’s a bit cheaper than going out for one.

1 lb. ground beef

1 large yellow onion

1 package of Taco seasoning

1 Large flour tortilla (or whole wheat tortilla)

1 can black beans (or refried beans), heated to directions (use ¼ cup for the burrito)

1 box of Rice (Spanish/Mexican), cooked to directions (use ¼ cup for the burrito)

Shredded lettuce, about a hand full

Salsa, ¼ cup

Avocado/guacamole, ¼ cup

Sour cream, ¼ cup

Tabasco sauce, 1 tablespoon (or more if you like it spicy)

Shredded cheese (cheddar/Mexican blend), about a hand full

1 tomato, diced with the membrane removed (use about a hand full for the burrito)


1. Half the yellow onion, and dice one half.

2. Slice the other half of the onion and cook in a frying pan with the ground beef over medium heat.

3. When meat and onions are fully cooked, add taco seasoning and cook to the packages instructions. (Usually for 5 minutes with ¼ cup of water)

4. When finished remove meat from pan and leave some of the grease in the pan.

5. Heat/fry the large tortillas in the grease from 30 second until warm a slightly browned.

6. Removed tortillas.

7. Add/fill into the warm tortilla the following layers of ingredients: The cooked meat and onions, cheese, beans, rice, sour cream, lettuce, avocado/ guacamole, diced onions, salsa, Tabasco sauce, and diced tomatoes.

8. Wrap up filling in the tortilla, serve immediately.

NOTE: You don’t have to make a HUGE one; you can always make many smaller ones using standard sized tortilla—This is just my way of making a giant-sized, fully-loaded burrito.)

      Wow these homemade burritos do look great. I agree with you totally that it is better to make your own home made tacos, burritos, sandwiches etc.

      Apart from always being cheaper at least you know they have been made fresh and hygienically too.
