Grilled Stuffed Burrito Recipe

Sexy Nerd will be quick to tell you that there are pros and cons of being married to a blogger.

On the plus side, I love to cook up tasty new foods to post on my blog. He never seems to mind this part.

Taco Bell Grilled Stuffed Burrito Copycat

(Waaaaay better than the fast food version)

 On the other hand, I may *occasionally* give him something tasty to eat...

...and then steal it away before he can take a bite.

Hey, I have to get photos, right? He should have known better than to try to eat his burrito before I was finished with it. Don't feel too bad for him. These things stay hot forever!

From age 16-18, yours truly worked at Taco Bell. I was there when the Grilled Stuffed Burritos were first introduced. So, yeah, I'm kind of an expert.

To this day, that annoying "beeeeeeeep" of the Taco Bell grill agitates me.

LambAround's Grilled Stuffed Burrito
(serves 4)
  • 1 lb Ground Beef, cooked
  • 1 C Brown Rice, cooked
  • 1/2 C Red or White Onion, diced
  • 2 cloves Garlic, minced
  • 1 Red or Green Bell Pepper, diced
  • 1 can Green Chili, diced
  • 1 C shredded Cheese (cheddar or 3 cheese blend)
  • 4 flour Tortillas
  • 4 packets Taco Bell hot sauce (Sriracha is also a tasty option)
Making these is super-easy. Lay out your 4 tortillas and divide the ingredients equally between them, leaving at least an inch of bare tortilla on each side. Fold each tortilla up tightly, closing both ends. Cook each on a George Foreman grill (or similar) for about 2 minutes.

Easy peasy, right?

A few side notes:

If you don't have any sort of electric grill, I think a waffle iron would probably also work. I bet your grilled burritos would look pretty cool, too!

The recipe above assumes that your beef and rice are recently cooked and are still hot. If you're really clever and are the type of person who pre-cooks a bunch of ground beef and rice to use throughout the week, (such a time saver and leaves you no excuse for not making dinner when you get home from work) just pop your burrito into the microwave before grilling.
