Chili Cheese Burritos Recipe

A good friend of ours brought over dinner for us way back with our very first baby. You expect to see casseroles and similar meals when someone brings over a meal. Instead, she brought over chili burritos!! I’d never had something like them before but they have since become an easy go-to recipe our family has used ever since! What’s great is, you can make up a double batch and freeze a tray of the chili cheese burritos either as individual burritos or for a family meal. That makes this a perfect, easy meal for busy families!

I’m participating in the McCormick’s Skillet Sauce® blogger campaign and received compensation as part of the program. All opinions are my own.

Make a batch of homemade chili using the McCormick Skillet Sauce packet! This makes it SO easy to make your own chili and the chili turns out hearty and delicious!

Next, scoop a big spoonful or two of chili onto your tortilla. Top the chili with shredded cheese. Roll it up and place it in an aluminum or regular baking dish if you’re planning to freeze the meal or your burritos are ready to plate!

We top our burritos with just a little bit of chili for effect, cheese and sour cream. You can also add fresh diced onions, cilantro, salsa, or any other toppings you would like as a garnish.

If you freeze your burritos, wrap the dish tightly in ceramic wrap and then aluminum foil to keep out freezer burn. Reheat in the oven at 350° F for 35-40 minutes or until cooked and warm at the center of your tray. No need to thaw first.

Best of all, when the meal is served my 4 year old tells me, “Mom, you’re the best cooker ever!” The chili tastes great and makes for a really filling, delicious meal the whole family happily gobbles down!

McCormick has release seven varieties of their Skillet Sauces. We found them right by the Taco seasonings in the bean/tomato aisle at our local Walmart. I’m a huge fan of fajitas, so I can’t wait to try that seasoning packet next!

  1. I love to make bean and cheese burritos as a quick, last-minute dinner, so these are right up my alley! I’m going to keep an eye our for this sauce the next time I go shopping. Thank you for sharing over at #FoodieFridays!

    • I don’t eat meat either, but these look so good! I think I’m going to try it using the Boca crumbles instead of the meat. My hubby & son do eat meat but will be ok eating it like that. :)

  2. These Burritos look so good. Such a simple recipe to make. I like to make stir fry when we are in a hurry.

  3. I can not eat beans, otherwise, this would be totally for me. I certainly think I can find something to substitute the beans with though :) Otherwise, the rest of the fam would eat this up however I made it! Thanks for sharing.

  4. This is so simple and fast to make. It looks delicious. I will have to make it for my kids. They will love it.

  5. These sound amazingly good. I love mexican food and try different kinds of recipes all the time. This is one I will add to my rotation!

  6. Sounds like a great recipe. It would fit right in on Mexican food night at our house. We have Mexican inspired food every Wednesday.
