Let me fill you in on a little “weeknight meal,” secret that I have.

Salsa and Cheese Burritos. Woah, these are good.

I’ll never forget the day my mom made these for the first time, when I was a kid.  I ran to the stove, {super hungry, dying to know what we were having for dinner.}  I looked in the pan, looked up at her, and kinda “snarled” my nose and asked what it was.  She said,

Oh Jess, this is a new recipe I’m trying.  I think it will taste better than it looks.

My mom never lied to me, so I knew I should give it a try.  I’m SOOOO glad I did.  I make this quite often, now that I have a family of my own.  This is a great recipe for a quick, week night meal, when you don’t have anything planned on the menu.

4 Ingredients are all you need: {Plus any toppings you may want}

Yes… this is when you look at it and you may say:

Umm… this is going to taste good?

4.  Let the burrito mixture simmer for a couple of minutes to let the cheese and salsa cook in to the beef, and become evenly warm.

5.  Spoon down the center of a warmed tortilla, and load that baby up with your desired toppings, and you’re golden.

This literally takes me 10 minutes to make.  A 10-Minute meal, is A-OK in my book.  Right?
