This Easy Beef Burrito recipes is a game changer. The beef sauce can be made in advance and stored in the fridge for a couple of days. I serve them as a main dish or as a snack with a mixture of fillings. Fillings such as avocado, cheese, tomatoes, asparagus, lettuce, salad, chillies, peppers to name but a few. A filling meal for 4 people ready in less than an hour.
