Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes


  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/2 medium-sized onion, finely chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 can (about 15 ounces) pinto beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can (about 10 ounces) high-quality enchilada sauce
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 12 small (6-inch) flour tortillas
  • Sour cream, guacamole, and salsa for that extra flair!

Kitchen Tools:

  • A large skillet
  • A spatula
  • A cheese grater (if you’re shredding your own cheese)


  1. Pour that tablespoon of vegetable oil into your large skillet and set it on medium heat. Why medium? Well, we want to treat our onions and peppers to a gentle sauté, not a scalding scorch!
  2. Toss your chopped onion and diced green bell pepper into the skillet. Ahh, smell that? It’s the sweet aroma of onions melding with the earthy fragrance of bell peppers. Stir occasionally and let these veggies cook until they are soft and slightly translucent—usually takes around 5 minutes.
  3. Add your pound of ground beef to the skillet. Keep breaking it apart and stirring until it transforms from pink to a luscious brown. About 7 minutes should do the trick. Remember, we’re aiming for juicy meat, not beef jerky!
  4. It’s time for our canned heroes—pinto beans and enchilada sauce—to make an entrance. Drain and rinse the pinto beans before adding them to the mix. These beans give a wonderful creamy texture that contrasts well with the meat. Now, pour in half of your cheddar cheese and that enticing can of enchilada sauce. Let all the ingredients simmer together for 5 minutes, allowing each component to borrow flavors from its neighbors.
  5. Heat a separate skillet over low heat or just use the same one but cleared out. Place a flour tortilla on the skillet for a few seconds to make it more pliable. Now, spoon a hearty amount of your meat mixture down the middle. Fold and roll the tortilla, placing it seam-side down in the skillet.
  6. After you’ve rolled all your burritos and placed them in the skillet, sprinkle the remaining cheddar cheese on top. Cover the skillet and let everything heat up for another 5 minutes. The cheese will melt into a golden pool of yumminess, sealing the deal on your masterpiece!
  7. Serve your glorious wet burritos with dollops of sour cream, guacamole, and a side of salsa. Your plate will look like a vibrant palette of flavors and your mouth will thank you for it!

Cooking tips:

  • Quality Matters: Opt for a high-quality enchilada sauce for enhanced flavor.
  • Juicy, Not Dry: Brown the ground beef without overcooking to maintain juiciness.
  • Balance the Fillings: Avoid overstuffing. The right balance ensures easy rolling.
  • Flexible Tortillas: Warm tortillas briefly to make them more pliable for rolling.
  • Cheese on Top: For that extra gooey finish, sprinkle cheese on top before the final heating.
  • Customize: Tailor the fillings based on your preferences—swap meat, add veggies, or adjust the spice level.
  • Serve Warm: Wet burritos are best enjoyed warm, complemented by sides like sour cream, guacamole, and salsa.
  • Remember, the key to a perfect wet burrito lies in the balance of flavors, textures, and love you pour into the preparation! 🌯👩‍🍳👨‍🍳
