Why I Love This Recipe

Recipe from pattilouwho from Tasty Kitchen! Photo by me! This dish was delicious! Yum-O! The modifications I made was to brown and drain the ground beef before adding the spices and while the ground beef was draining, I sauted the onions and then mixed everything in the skillet! I also added some salsa to the mixture as well as on the layers. I also added an extra layer since I had a little over a pound of ground beef!

Ingredients You'll Need

1 Tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 whole Onion, Chopped
1 pound Ground Beef
1 1/2 Tablespoon Granulated Garlic
1 Tablespoon Cumin (I used chipotle pepper seasoning mix)
1 Tablespoon Chili Powder
1 teaspoon Paparika
Salt & Pepper (to Taste)
1 cup Black Beans, Drained And Rinsed
1 cup Cooked Rice (white Or Brown)
3 whole Tortillas (burrito Size)
2 cups Shredded Mexican Cheese Blend
3 whole Green Onions, Chopped
Sour Cream


Preheat oven to 375°

Heat extra virgin olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

Add chopped onion and saute until translucent (about 5 minutes)

Mix all spices in a small bowl.

Add ground beef to cooked onions and add spice mixture.

Break up ground beef and cook completely until browned.

Taste mixture and add salt/pepper as needed.

Add black beans and rice to ground beef and mix well.

Using a pie pan, put a layer of salsa on the bottom, about 1/4 cup (I used a little more than 1/4 cup for each layer)

Place a tortilla over the salsa.

Sprinkle cheese over tortilla.

Spoon meat/bean/rice mixture over cheese layer.

Repeat layers once more starting with salsa and then end with a tortilla and remaining cheese on top.

Place in the oven for 12 minutes to heat through and melt the cheese.

Place under the broiler for about 2-3 minutes to make the tortilla and cheese a little crispy on top.

Finish off with chopped green onion.

Slice and serve with sour cream and extra salsa and tortilla chips.
