A no-fail lean beef burrito recipe with lots of veggies that you can always fall back on! Ready in about 30 minutes!
Okay, let’s talk culture. I grew up in Texas which means that Tex-Mex is just a part of life, hah! I actually can’t remember the last time a week went by that I didn’t have some sort of Tex-Mex inspired dish: quesadillas, tacos, tostadas, guac, fiesta or 7-layer salad, you name it! A few months ago I added burritos to the menu. And to be honest – I’m not really sure if they’re burritos or enchiladas or enchilurritos?! Anyway, these lean beef burritos with enchilada sauce are where it’s at.
Lean Beef Burritos with Enchilada Sauce
Alright so first thing’s first, what makes these beef burritos a nutritious choice?
How I Healthified these Beef Burritos
- I added veggies INTO the burritos to boost the nutritional value by increasing the fiber and vitamins and minerals. (And also I love doing this because let’s be real… sometimes veggies sitting on the side of your plate can seem daunting).
- I used a really lean beef (93% lean).
- They’re low in added salt but packed with flavor.
A Few Notes About Making These Lean Beef Burritos
They’re pretty no fail. Like really, it’s hard to botch these lean beef burritos. It’s forgiving.
Want to use ground bison or ground turkey instead? No problem. Want to use more or less veggies? Sure. (If you do use more, you might have extra filling at the end, but that’s ok! You can use it for a salad later).
Secondly, it makes a pretty big batch! You’ll definitely have leftovers if you’re just cooking for two.
Basically, I’m into them.
What to Serve with these Lean Beef Burritos
Definitely serve them with my super easy guacamole! You can also serve them over shredded lettuce or with a fun 7-layer salad.
As always, I hope you love this recipe!
