Cheeseburger Burritos


We are on vacation for a long weekend and I am re-posting some of our favorite and most popular meals. Hope you enjoy! Have a great weekend!

Cheeseburger Burritos

It has been a great vacation. The kids are returning from 12 days at camp. We got 3 letters from our son. They were cute. He said the food was AWESOME! Have to love hamburgers, hot dogs and chicken patties. He had planned on writing every day but was too busy, having fun and by the time of lights out he was too tired. This is from my little non-sleeper! I was so happy to hear that he is doing well and is happy.

This is one of the last meals we all had together before they left for camp. I was trying to keep things fun and light before they left. They sometimes tell me they wish for hamburgers and hot dogs like normal kids (they will get their fill of that at camp!) and then in the next breath tell me that they love how different and delicious all their meals are. Kids! They did ask for Mediterranean Kabobs and Tzatziki for their first meal back from camp.

This recipe came about because I wanted to show them hamburgers didn’t need to just come on a bun. I had leftover tortillas from a dish a few days ago that I wanted to use up so Cheeseburger Burritos were created.

Verdict:

They were easy, quick to make and very filling. The flavor was good and you can adjust the spices to make them more savory (more garlic, Worcestershire sauce and season salt) or barbecue (Sweet Baby Ray’s Honey Barbecue sauce, garlic powder and onion powder). There are so many ways you can make this dish.

The dish is mainly gluten-free for my mostly gluten-free son but I did serve his on gluten-free corn tortillas. Other than that the dish was the same for everyone.

I served this with seasoned fries and a green side salad.
