Good news, this is not a chicken recipe! We love Mexican food in this house. Tacos, burritos, enchiladas, quesadillas, it really doesn’t matter. I stumbled across this little beauty on Pinterest a while ago, made a few modifications and it’s been a huge hit. This is kind of like if a burrito and a quesadilla had a love child. Crunchy outside and burrito inside. I promise, after that marathon of a recipe last time, this one is back to quick and easy!
Oven Baked Burritos
- 8 Ounces of Cream Cheese
- 8 Ounces of Cheddar Cheese or any gooey meltiness you prefer
- 1 Packet of Taco Seasoning
- 1 Pound of Cooked, Shredded Meat (I used ground beef)
- 8 Flour Tortillas
- Cooking Spray
- Whatever type of burrito toppings you prefer: shredded cheese, black olives, lettuce, salsa, sour cream, etc
Start to preheat your oven to 350 degrees. If you using ground beef, brown your meat. If using some type of left over chicken or roast, shred it. Stir together the cream cheese, shredded cheese and taco seasoning. Fold in your choice of meat. Stir until all combined. Divide the mixture as evenly as possible between the 8 tortillas. Tuck in sides and fold each tortilla in to a neat little square pouch. Lay seam side down on a baking sheet. Spray the top with cooking spray. DO NOT skip this step. This is what makes the outside all crunchy and delicious! Bake for 15 minutes. Flip burritos and bake an additional 15 minutes. Serve with your burrito toppings.
I must caution you, the innards of these pouches are comparable to the innards of a pizza rolls or Hot Pockets in that they stay hot forever! Exercise restraint and do not pick up and shove in your mouth right away like the poor husband did. He may still have 3rd degree burns.
Enjoy your little pouches of burrito goodness!
