tacobell 5 layer burrito hash

Mmmm layer beefy burrito from taco bell… I made myself a copycat version in the past but this time since I’m cutting out the wheat I decided to try it as a hash with potatoes.

My regular copycat 5-layer beefy burrito recipe:

Large flour tortilla
1 jar nacho cheese
1 can refried beans
Taco bell beef (recipe below)
Sour cream

My taco bell beef recipe I use is from another website and it tastes pretty authentic.

Taco bell beef:
1 pound lean ground beef
1/4 cup flour (replace with corn flour/gluten free flour)
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dried minced onion
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
dash garlic powder
1/2 cup water

Of course to be grain free I omitted the tortillas in this case I choose to use potatoes. Not top in the healthy category but not terrible. So then I just boiled the potatoes chopped them. Put the beef in the cast iron pan with the flour substitute and spices and mush them all together on medium heat and poured in the water continuing to mush until cooked through. Then I added the refried beans and potatoes cooked for 25 minutes until the flavors melded with the potatoes. Topped with nacho cheese and sour cream (or whole milk yogurt). FYI if you are using real good chili powder don’t get so excited that your lean over the pan and breath in deeply my nostrils burned for a little while….dum dum dum 🙂
