My family and I really love Mexican Food, especially burritos and enchiladas!  So, I decided to make some Deep Fried Beef and Rice Burritos, I created this recipe years ago and it's delicious.  We have always loved the Spanish Rice-a-Roni and hamburger, with Taco Seasoning.  So, I mixed them all together, added some Mexican Style cheese and made deep fried burritos, with the flour tortilla shells.  It's a pretty easy recipe.

How to Make Deep Fried Beef and Rice Burritos


I did my shopping at Fred Meyer for all the ingredients, except for the ground beef.  For the ground beef I went to my local butcher, Silvana Meats.  By getting the hamburger there, I know that it doesn't have any fillers and it's all natural, so that's a big PLUS!

Ingredients:
  • Two boxes of Spanish Rice-a-Roni
  • Two packages of Taco Seasoning
  • Two packages of Flour Tortillas
  • Two pounds of Ground Beef
  • One package of Mexican Style Cheese
  • Vegetable Oil

Instructions:

Brown the ground beef and drain.

Brown the hamburger
Add the Taco Seasoning and follow the directions on the package.

Cook one or both boxes of the Spanish Rice-a-Roni. I usually cook one box first, in a microwavable glass dish. The directions call for a can of tomatoes and 2¼ cup water, but I use only 2½ cups water and microwave it for about 17 minutes.

Once the ground beef mixture has simmered for 10-15 minutes and the rice is done, I start filling the tortillas, with the ground beef mixture, rice, shredded cheese and fold up the tortillas.

Once I have filled and folded all the tortillas, I start cooking the other box of rice for a side dish.

Then I fill a frying pan, with vegetable oil and start deep frying all the burritos.
I turn the burner almost to medium and it takes about 3-5 minutes for each burrito.

So, now you have Deep Fried Beef and Rice Burritos, with a side dish of rice. You can also add refried beans to your burritos or add as a side dish.

I decided to add tator tots to the meal, they're also a family favorite.

These look wonderful. I haven't fried them before like this but I am sure you are doing it right. I just leave the oil out. I will have to try it with the oil for it probably gives it the great flavor you need. Thanks for the tip. I need to make these one of these days!!
