That can of black beans photo bombed my recipe! I didn’t actually use those in this recipe because I bought them for this Crispy Chicken Chimichangas meal, but you could add them or any other ingredient you love for this type of meal.

Place a burrito sized tortilla on a plate and place about a 1/2 cup of the ground beef mixture onto the center. I divide the beef mixture into six equal portions. Top with a little cheese and lettuce. You can substitute or add other veggies as well.
