This meal reminded me of Chipotle. The jumbo burrito shells. The rice. The meat mixture. The toppings. Wrap it all up. Mmm…
Only difference. This meal cost $5…and a meal for our family at Chipotle would be well over $20!
Well, that. And the spices weren’t quite the same. Just experiment and add whatever zippiness your burritos deserve!

Mmmm, this sounds delicious! Can’t wait to try it 🙂
Chipotle secrets: Some of the meats are marinated in adobo sauce and the rice has lime and cilantro. Just to try for future meals 😉
Chipotle also uses oregano and bay leaf in the beans. We love to make Chipotle at home.
Ugh, now I’m hungry – it’s after 10pm, I already have heartburn, and I want nothing more than to drive 20 miles to pick up some Mexican food – I’m totally making these soon, even if it will be for myself! ;o)
Sounds delish! You could dress up the black beans a bit by adding some caramelized onions without jacking up the price. mmm. Can’t believe you had canned diced tomatoes for so cheap! I think anything less than $1 is a good deal! But since I grow my own in the summer I could still make your price.
Yum! I love to make Chipotle at home. I wish I could re-create the red hot sauce though! I’m sure it involves rehydrating chipotle peppers, blitzing them along with some vinegar, maybe garlic, but I’ve tried that and came up with a different (albeit yummy) sauce entirely.
Yes, the rice has lime and cilantro. Easy to make – Put a tablespoon of oil and/or butter in your saucepan and heat to medium heat. Add rice, and stir in the oil for a few minutes, until the grains are starting to absorb the oil. Squeeze the juice of a lime in, and then pour in water and salt, and allow to steam until rice is done. Then, fluff rice and stir in cilantro. Ta-da!
I could have Mexican every day and never get sick of it – thanks for the recipe! 😀
Yum! This looks delish and is something I could actually get my picky hubby to eat! Would brown rice be ok to use instead? That’s all we eat at my house anymore!

Just whipped this up for lunch with leftover roast beef instead of ground beef, and a can of Rotel instead of diced tomatoes. Quick, easy and delicious! Thanks!
Made these for dinner last night. They were delicious and a hit with the family. I added some onions and used fire roasted diced tomatoes. Definitely a 5-star. Thanks for sharing
Why not just skip the beef entirely? It’s not like it’s needed for protein since the black beans are there. With all the other good things in the burritos, these would be plenty filling.
This is now my go to recipe… MrB LOVES this and asks for it more than once a week. I don’t but it’s so easy. I often have kidney beans so I just use those and I make brown rice as well. there are many ways to make this a different burritto but MrB keeps asking for the same!
This meal would be cheaper (and healthier) if two cans of beans (i.e., black and pinto, refried…), would be used instead of the meat. At least I think so, as beans, canned or dry, are generally cheaper than beef. (We buy the organic when they go on sale for around $1.39. We buy the organic because we use the sauce in with them and they have less sodium.) I don’t get the rice at Chipolte because it’s white (white rice is okay on occasion when I’m not pregnant, but now when I’m pregnant), and I don’t get the pinto beans at Chipolte because they contain meat. Oh, yeah. Whole wheat tortillas would be better, too.
Actually, with my alterations (brown rice, black and refried beans), this meal, is doable for me.
We love this one we keep a bag in freezer with rice, beef leftover chicken that 2 bites of left over steak left over tomatoes, beans and corn then we just pull out the bag everything is seasoned and ready to go roll heat and eat dinner in 5 mins
