This Easy Beef Burrito Skillet is a quick and delicious meal perfect for a weeknight dinner. It is made with ground beef, peppers, onions, beans, rice, and tomatoes and topped with cheese!


  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 c. red onion, diced
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, sliced
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 lb. Laura’s Lean Ground Beef
  • 1.5 oz. Fajita Seasoning
  • 15 oz. pinto beans (you can use black beans instead)
  • 1 pouch of microwavable brown rice, heated
  • 10 oz. diced tomatoes
  • 1 c. sharp shredded cheddar cheese
  • Garnish: Chopped Cilantro, Pico de Gallo, Sour Cream, diced avocado



  1. Using a large skillet on medium-high heat, add the olive oil. Add the red onion and bell peppers and cook until softened, about 5-7 minutes. 
  2. Add the ground beef to the veggies, use a spatula to break up the meat, and cook until browned. Season the meat and veggies with the fajita seasoning and stir to combine— no need to drain the beef to remove the excess grease.
  3. Add the brown rice, beans, and diced tomatoes and stir—season with additional salt and pepper to taste. Allow the burrito mixture to simmer on low for 5 minutes. Top off with shredded cheese, fresh chopped cilantro, and chopped chives. 
  4. Serve the burrito mixture with soft tortilla shells and lay out toppings for individual servings, such as chopped cilantro, pico de gallo, sour cream, and diced avocado.
