How about some mini burritos for supper! This recipe is featured from 'The Girl Who Ate Everything' website. This recipe is perfect if you are heading to a party or potluck and need to bring a plate of appetizers. It is also a very nice choice for a children's party as you made 32 small burritos from 8, 8-inch flour tortillas. These are stuffed with some yummy traditional burrito ingredients and are easy to make. This recipe uses pre-made tortillas but if you want to make your own you can certainly do that as well.
This recipe also calls for ground beef. When you make any recipe, you can use whatever grade of ground beef you want to. Fattier ground beef is less money but when you fry it produces a lot of greasy fat in the pan that you need to drain out and throw away. The volume of meat is less than it was when in the package. Cooking lean or extra lean ground beef, there is usually not much or any shrinkage or fat, so what you see is pretty close to what you get in poundage. With these burritos as with most recipes, you can also make some substitutions. Perhaps you prefer ground chicken in your Mexican food. The flavor will be fantastic either way.
Grating your own cheddar cheese is more cost effective than buying it already grated. You can choose a mild, medium or sharp and cook to your families tastes. Re-fried beans are just so delicious and so nutritious as well. Beans are under-rated and whenever you can include beans in your diet, that is a good healthy choice.
These mini burritos can be prepared ahead of time, placed on a baking sheet, refrigerated then warmed up just when you go to serve them. How wonderful your kitchen is going to smell.
