Ground Beef Burrito Bowl Skillet Ingredients:

The ingredients for to make a pan of Ground Beef Burrito Bowl Skillet are pretty basic and straightforward. -- Nothing too fancy here! To make a pan, you'll need:

  • Ground beef - Creates the beefy base of the burrito bowl filling. Ground turkey can be substituted just fine, if you'd like.

  • Onion - The aromatic that helps amp up the flavor of the beef-based filling.

  • Green pepper - Adds wonderful flavor to the burrito bowl mixture.

  • Rice - Cooked white rice brings bulk to the filling. Brown rice can also be used instead.

  • Dark red kidney beans - Bring flavor and additional bulk to the burrito bowl mixture. We love the flavor of dark red kidney beans, however pinto beans, black beans, or any other variety can be used in their place if you'd like. 

  • Seasonings - A combination of chili powder, ground cumin, garlic powder, salt, and pepper season the dish.

  • Beef broth - Adds moistness and flavor to the dish.

  • Shredded medium cheddar cheese - Stirred in just before serving, shredded cheese adds flavor and creaminess to the mixture.

  • Toppings - Top individual servings with avocado, sour cream, chopped cilantro, and/or more shredded cheddar cheese, as desired.
