I don't know about everyone else, but at the end of a long day, the last thing I want to do is 1) stop at the store, 2) spend a bunch of time trying to figure out what to cook for dinner or 3) slave over the stove forever. I don't mind cooking but I also would not say that I love cooking. It is part of life but I am always looking for ways to simplify and shorten my time in the kitchen.

One night I was struggling so hard to figure out what to cook when my husband started begging for Chipotle (his favorite restaurant). Neither of us felt like leaving the house, Chipotle doesn't deliver and we were starving. I decided that I would make the closest thing to Chipotle burritos I could... and hence this recipe was born. So, today, I am sharing one of my favorite simple recipes for a busy weeknight. It is a staple in our home and a favorite of my husband.

I keep ingredients on hand for this at all times. This recipe is not groundbreaking or creative. It is simple, easy and filling. There will be some leftovers but not an excessive amount (cooking for two is always a challenge) and it makes the perfect taco salad for lunch the next day. I make it gluten free from scratch for my husband who has a gluten sensitivity. You can easily make it with gluten too.

So, here you go. One of my favorite, go-to, simple weeknight recipes.

A few tips:

  • Make sure to drain the beef after browning it- too much grease will make them drippy
  • You can sub shredded chicken for the beef to change things up 
  • Leftovers can be served over tortilla chips or lettuce for an easy lunch
