This is a home-cooked version of the crispy, crunchy delicious burrito you can get at your favorite Tex-Mex restaurant. This is the comfort food burrito of our dreams: layers of refried beans and seasoned ground beef are drizzled with nacho cheese, then stuffed into crispy hard shell tacos and smothered in sour cream, lettuce, tomatoes and Mexican cheese. You can also make this a burrito bowl by combining all the ingredients in a bowl over rice or shredded lettuce. Happy burrito night from Suvie!

Note: If you would like to schedule this cook but do not want to wait for the broiler to cool before refrigerating, sauté the beef in a large skillet over medium-high heat until browned, about 6 minutes.

After the cook, remove pans from Suvie. To assemble the burritos add a layer of refried beans to each tortilla.

Top with ground beef. Drizzle with nacho cheese then add broken shells on top of cheese. Dollop with sour cream, lettuce, tomato and shredded cheese.

Fold tortilla to form a burrito. For extra crunch, brush burritos with vegetable oil and broil in Suvie for 7 minutes until crispy or fry in a skillet on your stovetop.  

To make this recipe on the stovetop, heat 1 tsp vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add the ground beef, taco seasoning, and kosher salt and cook for 8 minutes or until beef is cooked through. Warm refried beans and nacho cheese sauce separately in the microwave or stovetop. Spread a layer of refried beans over each tortilla followed by ground beef, nacho cheese, hard shell tacos, sour cream, lettuce, tomatoes, and shredded cheese. Wrap up tortillas to form burritos and serve.

Do you have to brown the ground beef before putting it in the Suvie? It doesn’t specify? The picture looks like the ground beef is already ground before doing the broiling process.

Hi Nicole, you do not have to brown the beef before putting it in your Suvie. The broiling step will brown the beef before Slow Cooking. Hope this helps and let us know how the recipe turns out!
