How To Make A Taco Bell Burrito Supreme

Start by browning the ground beef on the stove. Chop it up as it cooks, then let it simmer with taco seasoning and a little bit of water.

Meanwhile, heat the tortillas, beans, and red sauce in the microwave and chop up the produce.

Assemble each one by layering the fillings down the center of each tortilla. Then, fold the two sides over all of the ingredients before rolling it up!

What’s great about this recipe is that everyone can personalize their own with different amounts and combinations of beans, meat, sauce, and toppings.

Just keep in mind that larger portions of each filling may make it more difficult to roll up your Taco Bell burrito supreme!

Helpful Tips and Tricks

  • Skip a step. I love to prepare a big batch of ground beef to have on hand. Simply add the taco seasoning while it cooks and portion it out before freezing, then warm before spooning into your Taco Bell supreme burrito!
  • Warm the tortillas. Don’t skip this simple step - it helps keep all of the fillings warm and prevents cracking when you roll it all together.
  • Heat the beans and sauce too! Not only will they be easier to spread, but the warmth will melt down the cheese when added.
  • Want the perfect texture? Be sure to chop up the meat really well while it is cooking. In fact, you can pulse it in a food processor or blender to get it just like the fast food version.

Kitchen Tools You Will Need

  • Skillet - This is my go-to pan that I’ve had for over a decade! It heats evenly and cleans up beautifully with a little baking soda so it still looks brand new.
  • Potato masher - Thanks to watching the Rachael Ray show, my new favorite way to break up ground meat is a potato masher. It’s so much easier than using a wooden spoon.
  • Mixing Bowls - I like to have a variety of sizes on hand, and this set has them all. Plus, they are safe to use in the microwave!
  • Cheese Grater - As much as I love buying bagged shreds because it’s easier, freshly grated cheese melts down so much smoother and tastes better too.

FAQ - Common Recipe Questions

What makes it a burrito supreme?

The addition of seasoned beef and fresh veggies plus a dollop of sour cream is what puts this a step above regular bean and cheese burritos.

Is a Taco Bell supreme burrito good as leftovers?

You can store assembled burritos in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 days. I would recommend leaving off the sour cream until just before serving.

Or, prepare all of the ingredients and store them in individual containers so all you need to do is put one together when it’s time to eat!
