Healthy Baked Beef Burritos


  • 1 lb extra lean ground beef
  • 1/4 cup taco seasoning
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup fat free sour cream
  • 1/2 cup salsa, your preferred level of heat
  • 1 cup Tomato, cut into small cubes
  • 8 whole wheat soft tortillas, 12 inch
  • 1 cup low-fat cheddar cheese, grated


  • 1 small head iceberg lettuce, cut into thin ribbons
  • 2 cups Tomatoes, cut into small cubes


  1. Brown ground beef in nonstick pan over medium for 5 minutes. Add taco seasoning and water and simmer for 20 minutes or until water has evaporated. By doing this, you infuse the taco seasoning into the ground beef and it tastes great!
  2. Add sour cream, salsa and tomatoes and stir until heated through.
  3. Divide mixture between 8 soft tortillas, approximately 1/2 cup each.
  4. Spray shallow casserole dish with nonstick spray.
  5. Roll up tortillas - fold the sides in first until almost touching. Then roll the tortilla and place seam side down in pan to ensure that filling does not run out. Sprinkle evenly with cheese.
  6. Cover pan with foil and bake at 350F for approximately 25 minutes, until cheese has melted and burritos are heated through.
  7. Place 1/4 of the lettuce and on each plate and top with 1/4 of tomatoes.
  8. Place 2 burritos on top of fresh veggies on each plate.
