Quick and Easy One-Pot Meal: Unstuffed Burritos

Back to school time is always busy, so autumn has me breaking out all of my favorite easy recipes. This one for “unstuffed” burritos is cooked all in one skillet. There are two things I love about it (besides how good it tastes).

Why I love Unstuffed Burritos

  1. When I cook it myself, I usually sit and read a book for most of the cook time because it requires absolutely nothing from me.
  2. It is so easy that both my 14-year-old and my 11-year-old can make unstuffed burriots without my help. Winning! We usually serve it with chips and salsa, so they think they’re winning, too.

Laura is a mom of three who works full-time from home as a Development Director for a children’s charity. Laura grew up in Maryland, spent her 20s living in Southern California and South Carolina, and has spent her 30s in Iowa, moving to Iowa City in 2010. Laura loves dancing, reading, baking, and music. She and her husband Ryan started dating in college (gasp – about 20 years ago!) and they have been sharing life’s adventures ever since. Their biggest adventure is, of course, parenthood. With three kids, the action is non-stop - which is just the way Laura likes it. Laura sometimes gives a good impression of having it all together, but she forgets about school picture day, drops her kid off on the wrong day for birthday parties, and those are just the things she’s not too embarrassed to tell you about. She makes some killer chocolate chip cookies, though, and hopes that might make up for the rest.
