Easy Beef Burrito Skillet

Easy Beef Burrito Skillet is a homemade one pan meal the whole family will love! You can serve it as a “naked” burrito and eat it straight from the skillet, or you can add the filling to tortilla shells to make more traditional beef burritos, make burrito bowls, and even turn it into a burrito salad!

Ingredients For the Burrito Skillet

  • 1 pound hamburger
  • 1 15 oz pinto beans drained
  • 1 1/2 cup cooked white rice
  • 1 cup corn kernels
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 1 Tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper

Optional Burrito Toppings

  • avocado diced
  • tomatoes diced
  • green olives sliced
  • cheddar cheese grated
  • cilantro chopped
  • sour cream
  • tortilla chips crushed
  • tortilla shells for serving


  • Cook and stir hamburger over medium high heat until it’s cooked through and crumbled. Drain if necessary.
  • Stir in beans, rice, corn, broth, salsa, and spices.
  • Reduce heat and continue stirring and cooking for about 5 minutes.
  • While burrito mixture is cooking prepare optional toppings.
  • Serve warm with your favorite toppings.


  • I like to cook rice in advance and keep it in the refrigerator so it’s easy to add to recipes like this. You can also use steam in a bag rice {affiliate link} if you’d rather.
  • This filling can be served as a “naked” skillet meal, a burrito bowl, salad, or nachos. See the post for more details.
