Beefy Naked Burrito Skillet is similar to a burrito bowl you can get from a place like Chiptole, it is an easy meal for those busy nights when you can’t make it to the restaurant. You can serve it like nachos which is what we did, or you can roll it up into a burrito, or just eat it like a burrito bowl.

You can top it however you like we chose not to use the sour cream, avocado, cilantro, and red pepper, I added cheese to mine for a topping but my boyfriend just ate it plain.
