Cheeseburger Burrito

What do you do when you’re craving a burrito and a cheeseburger? You have both of course. You take a nice, juicy cheeseburger and wrap it up in a soft burrito, then place more cheese on top. You know that one friend that eats everything with a knife and fork? Well for this burger you get to be that friend. This is very fork worthy trust me. I am thinking that next time I make this I might add some guacamole on top. I might even shake things up a bit and bring it more to the burger level and add ketchup, mustard and maybe even a pickle or two inside the burrito. I mean with this burrito burger, you can let your imagination go and who knows what you might come up with.

Here’s what you need to get started:

*soft style burrito tortillas

*1 LB or more ground beef, preferable an 80% to 20% fat ratio.

*1 tsp. garlic powder

*1tsp. onion powder

*1/2 tsp. salt

*cracked pepper to taste

*1 TBS Worcestershire sauce

*sliced cheese; I used cheddar and Colby Jack

Preheat oven to 400°

Place ground beef in a large bowl and add all of the ingredients except for the tortillas and sliced cheeses.

Mix until well blended.

Form into 4 equal patties.

Heat a cast iron pan to medium high heat. When the pan is very hot, add the patties.

Cook for about 5 minutes, then flip them over.

Cook for another 3 minutes for medium rare burgers or for 5 minutes for medium burgers.

Place patties on a plate lined with a paper towel.

This drains some of the grease off of the burgers. If the burgers are too juicy, the bottom of the tortilla will become soggy….and no one likes a soggy bottom. I’m just sayin.

Lay a tortilla on a baking sheet, then one slice of cheese in the center of the tortilla.

I used cheddar for this.

Place a patty on top of the cheese.

Fold in the two sides of the tortilla.

I could never be a hand model.

Next, fold the top and the bottom of the tortilla over the sides.

Then flip it over.

Place a slice of cheese on top of the burrito. I used the Colby Jack for this.

Repeat with remaining tortillas. Place in the oven and cook for about 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Serve on plates and add any topping you might like.
