Burritacos

Feb5

It’s pretty easy to see after following our meal plan for a bit, that we love Mexican food, and with our large gang, this is a perfect recipe for a large group, and you will need two 9×13 pans. It feeds many, but even if just serving your family, it’s perfect the next day or wrapped tightly in freezer wrap for a new week.

We love a Tex Mex twist, and this has it. I’m always creating dishes with variations. As much as our family loves the taste of tacos, do you understand how many I have to make to fill the bellies of our five children? WAY too many, so this dish is the perfect blend of taco taste with the heartiness and substance of burritos.

It’s also one of those dishes that can be tweaked to your family’s favorite tastes.

Inspired from Taste of Home’s Tacoritos, but tweaked dramatically

Number of servings (yield): 8


So what are you cooking up this week for Tasty Tuesday?

I can’t wait to be inspired! Remember to link up your recipe, link back here in your post and share the love. :)

  1. Looks delicious! We love these kinds of recipes, too – and also have made the Taste of Home Tacoritos that you referred to you in your post!

  2. This is just perfect timing! Guess what I found in the marked down meat bin this week? Several packages of ground pork sausage that had already been taco seasoned. I got each package for about the same price as the packet of seasoning would have been by itself. I couldn’t pass it up for the price, but had not yet had time to search for recipes to use it. Now I don’t have to search! XO!

  3. Great idea – I’m especially liking the name “Burritacos.” :)

    I’m with you in re to the name “Burritacos”. I can’t wait to try them. We love Mexican food of every kind. Could probably eat it every day just haven’t tried that yet. Husband is originally from south Texas & I’ve lived in five different places in TX as a kid and an adult.

  6. Hey Jen! Just tried Burritaco’s for my lifegroup – every week I feed 20-25 College students from church and love love love many of your recipes. I have my own standards as well, but love adding new B&B recipes!

    Anyways – I stayed up late Monday night making the dish and then put them in my fridge until Tuesday. I baked them and was so pleased with how they smelt as they baked away. Our gang is half male at least, and they were raving! Girls too, but the guys are the big eaters and even though I only gave them one each they were more than full. Win! I served mine with some mexi rice as well just in case but had tons of that leftover.

    Thank you for this recipe and your many many others!

    P.S. My husband is an American living up in Canada – and he often misses all things football (specifically Packers) and mexican food – when I told him this mexican inspired dish was created by a Green Bay fan he was over the moon. That topped the enjoyment experience off perfectly for him.

    These look amazing! Can’t wait to make them! I’m thinking I might use a can of drained Rotel in the meat mixture for extra color and a little spice. Yum!!

    Rotel in it would be SO delicious!! :)

  8. This looks so yummy! If freezing this would you completely assemble it before freezing with the sauce and everything or would that make it soggy? Trying to decide if I should freeze the filling and sauce and then thaw and assemble before baking?

    Jen Reply:

    Ideally, freezing the sauce separately is best, but I’ve done it with the burritos and it’s still yummy. Just depends if your family wants the different texture, but with the sauce, it all mixes together anyhow.
