Course Dinner
Servings 4


Seasoned Beef

  • 1 pound ground beef 85% lean
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper

Chipotle Sour Cream

  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon chipotle hot sauce
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper

Other Ingredients

  • 1 cup cooked Spanish rice we used pre-cooked
  • 3 cups shredded cheddar jack cheese divided
  • 1 cup red tortilla strips store-bought
  • 2-3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 extra-large burrito tortillas


  • Cook the seasoned beef: In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the ground beef until fully browned, about 5-7 minutes. Season with garlic powder, chili powder, salt, and pepper. Set aside.
  • Prepare the chipotle sour cream: Mix sour cream, chipotle hot sauce, and cayenne pepper in a bowl. Set aside.
  • Assemble the burritos: In a large bowl, combine ¼ pound of cooked beef, ¼ cup chipotle sour cream, ¼ cup rice, ½ cup cheese, and ¼ cup tortilla strips. Fill each tortilla with the mixture, folding in the sides and rolling into a burrito.
  • Cook the burritos: Heat olive oil in the skillet over medium-high heat. Place a line of cheese in the center of the skillet and place a burrito on top. Press down with a heavy skillet and cook for 3-4 minutes until the cheese melts and browns. Flip and cook for another 2-3 minutes until browned.
  • Repeat for remaining burritos. Let them rest for 1 minute before serving.


  • For the best melting, mix all ingredients before wrapping.
  • XL tortillas are recommended for ample filling space. Enjoy layered or mixed—it’s delicious either way!
