Beef and Bean Burritos from The Pioneer Woman

Fast and easy . . . semi-homemade from The Pioneer Woman.  A delicious meal in 16 minutes!

Burritos are one of my favorites.  Actually, The Captain introduced me to the versatility of tortilla wrapped meals and we have many meals of this type with all kinds of variation.  Coming up with new combinations is half the fun!

This recipe comes from The Pioneer Woman's website included in one of my favorite sections . . . 16 minute meals.  Click here to go to that section of her website.
