Burritos are a favourite and this is a quick, easy, and fun, one-skillet, deconstructed, take on them! The idea here is to make a sauce with beef burrito style ingredients, to mix in sliced tortillas and to top everything off with cheese, that is melted, before adding any fresh burrito style fillings like sour cream, avocado, cilantro, onions, etc. The sauce has a base of ground beef seasoned with a taco spice blend, along with enchilada sauce (or salsa), beans and corn and it takes almost no time to make. I like to top this off with sour cream, avocados, cilantro and green onions but you can use your favourite burrito fillings! The family fun meal is perfect for busy nights and it’s sure to please everyone!
