Key Ingredients & Substitutions

Shredded Beef Burrito Ingredients by CampingForFoodies features a table filled with ingredients including shredded cheese, olive oil, onions, sour cream, taco seasoning, cooked shredded beef, salsa, guacamole, avocado and tortillas. Spoons, a knife and cooking tongs are with the food.

When you’re making burritos, it’s all about the toppings. You really only need the meat, some seasonings and tortillas. Then, add your favorite toppings to make it really special.

  • Shredded beef (beef chuck roast pre-made in a crockpot then shredded)
  • Taco seasoning
  • Tortillas

Key Equipment

For this recipe you’ll cook a little onion then re-heat the meat with some taco seasoning. I just like to do it with a cast iron skillet on a camp stove but it also works well using a Blackstone or a pancake griddle over a campfire.

How To Make

These Shredded Beef Burritos are made in one skillet, see how easy they are to prepare in my VIDEO.

Preparation

Step 1. Gather cooking equipment and fuel. Prepare ingredients, as directed.

Cooking Instructions

Step 2. Heat a large frying pan over medium high heat, then heat the olive oil in the pan.

Step 3. Add the onion to the oil, cook until softened.

Step 4. Add the meat, taco seasoning and enough water to moisten the pan.

Step 5. Stir all of the ingredients together, let cook until the meat is heated through and all of the liquid is absorbed.

Step 6. Lay the tortillas on a flat surface, divide the meat equally between them. Top with your favorite toppings.

Step 7. Fold the tortillas, tucking in the ends as you roll them up. Serve hot.

Pairings

I like serving Mexican themed appetizers before the main dish. I reserve some salsa and guac for topping the burritos too. Try these:

A side of refried beans is always a nice addition to burritos and tacos too.
