Deconstructed Turkey/Beef Burritos (One Pot Meal)

Adapted from Betty Crocker

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground turkey or beef
  • 1 oz package taco seasoning mix (or see homemade below)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup chunky salsa (I use Trader Joe’s Thick & Chunky Salsa)
  • 1 (15 oz) can black beans, drained
  • 4 flour tortillas sliced into 1-inch strips
  • 1 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese
  • Toppings: sliced green onions, sour cream, guacamole

Homemade Taco Seasoning:

  • 2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. paprika 
  • 1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. salt 
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp. onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp. dried oregano 
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper

Directions

  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon oil; brown meat until no longer pink.
  2. Add taco seasoning, water, salsa and beans. Cook over medium heat for 3-5 minutes or until the sauce thickens. Reduce heat to low.
  3. Stir in the tortilla strips and then top with cheese. Remove skillet from heat and let cheese melt. Optional step: Before cutting the tortillas into 1-inch strips, heat them on a dry skillet until slightly puffed. If using corn tortillas you can spray or brush on a little oil and heat them on the skillet as well.
  4. Top with sour cream and sprinkle with green onions. Serve immediately.
