Karen’s Killer Fixin’s: 25 Minute Beef & Salsa Burritos

  It’s time for Karen’s Killer Fixin’s!

Over the years, I’ve filled two 4-inch, 3-ring binders with my own creations as well as recipes my family and friends were willing to share with me.  I simply love to cook and want to share that love with my readers.

So every Friday, I share one recipe I think you and your family might enjoy. It might be a main course recipe. A cookie or baked item. Candy. Salads. Whatever strikes my eye and fancy…which today is 25 MINUTE BEEF & SALSA BURRITOS!!

There are simply some nights you need to whip together something fast and satisfying. No muss, no fuss. This is one of those recipes. 25 minutes and you’ve got a filling meal for eight on the table. If spinach isn’t your thing, replace it with sliced red and green peppers. 

I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s.  Happy eating!
