Weeknight Easy Taco Wraps

As you can probably tell by the taco based recipes I often post that we really dig Mexican food around here. These are super easy for those busy nights and are kid friendly too. You can spice them up a bit by adding green chiles, some hot sauce and maybe even some guacamole. This is a great basic recipe with ingredients you that you might already have on hand. 

These also taste great as a chicken taco wrap. Just replace the ground beef with cooked, shredded chicken and eliminate the refried beans. 

1 lb. lean ground beef
1 pkg. taco seasoning
1/2 cup water
1 can (16 oz) refried beans
6 (10 inch) tortillas
1/2 cup salsa
3/4 cup Monterey Jack cheese

Brown ground beef, making sure it is finely crumbled. Drain. Add taco seasoning and water. Mix well and cook about 3 minutes on low. Remove from heat and add refried beans. Mix well, reducing any large chunks.

Heat tortillas for about 10 seconds in the microwave. Spread 1/2 cup of taco mixture over tortilla. Top with desired amount of salsa and cheese. Roll up, tucking in the ends about 1/2 way up the roll. 

Cut each roll in half and serve with your favorite toppings like sour cream, avocado, guacamole and more salsa.
