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!
- 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
Brown the ground beef and drain.
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.
