Make it a bacon cheeseburger burrito by adding crispy bacon strips. Dill pickles, fried mushrooms, or any other toppings you enjoy on your burgers would take these burritos to the next level.

Be sure to keep the warm tortillas covered to prevent the tortillas from drying out and the edges from becoming brittle as this would make rolling the tortillas a bit difficult. If you do not have a microwave-safe tortilla warmer, you can use steam paper towels to cover the tortillas while heating them in the microwave.

Instead of cheddar cheese, you can substitute shredded American cheese. If the Velveeta is too thick, you can add 1 to 2 tablespoons of half and half.

How to Make Cheeseburger Burrito

FIRST STEP: Add the ground beef and ½ cup of diced onion to a 3 to 4 quart saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook uncovered and stir often until the ground beef is no longer pink. Drain any excess liquid.

SECOND STEP: Reduce the heat to medium-low. Add in the ketchup, pickle relish, and mustard. Stir and bring to a simmer. Continue to cook for 3 to 4 more minutes.

THIRD STEP: Remove the pan from the heat. Stir in the shredded cheddar and the black pepper. Continue stirring until the shredded cheese is well incorporated.

FOURTH STEP: Add the cubed Velveeta to a medium size microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 45-second intervals, stirring until the cheese is completely melted and smooth.

FIFTH STEP: Using a microwave-safe tortilla warmer, heat the 6 tortillas for 45 seconds.

SIXTH STEP: Measure out ½ cup of the ground beef mixture, and spread it out in a 4-inch x 2-inch section.

SEVENTH STEP: Top the ground beef with 2 teaspoons of the ½ cup of diced onion.

EIGHTH STEP: Top the diced onion with 2 tablespoons of the melted Velveeta, shredded lettuce, and chopped tomato.

NINTH STEP: Fold the sides of the burrito towards the center over the filling and hold the sides in place.

TENTH STEP: Fold the bottom of the burrito over the folded sides. Carefully tuck the bottom under the filling, pulling it snug. Begin rolling the burrito towards the opposite end. Be sure to tighten the burrito as you roll and keep the sides tucked in. Serve immediately.

Can I use corn tortillas instead of flour tortillas?

We find that corn tortillas don’t roll as well in these burrito-style cheeseburger wraps. For the best results, stick with soft flour tortillas if you can.

Can I make this easy recipe ahead of time?

You can prepare the burrito filling ahead of time and keep it in the fridge or freezer. If frozen, thaw the filling overnight in the fridge. Then add the filling to the warm tortillas once you are ready to enjoy this dish.

What toppings can I add to my cheeseburger burrito?

Crispy bacon strips, herring pickles, fried mushrooms, or any other toppings you enjoy on your burgers would be delicious on these burritos.
