Dear Americanized Mexican food,
Stop being so hard to photograph.
Sincerely,
Sarah

But in all seriousness despite this style of food being uncooperative for photographing, it's a great way to mix up Taco Tuesday and make something other than tacos. It has most of the elements of a regular taco, but it's made in one skillet. I have made a few recipes here and there that include some type of beans in the taco meat, but never kidney beans. I was pretty stoked and very excited to see how it would turn out. I thought the kidney beans worked perfectly well in this dish and loved how quick and easy it was to throw it all together.

I like that this recipe was a different way to eat a beef burrito, I also have a different way to eat fajitas in this Beef Fajita Nachos recipe. If you prefer chicken burritos, be sure to check out this BBQ Chicken Burrito Bowls recipe from Simply Recipes.
