  1. In a skillet over medium heat, cook the ground beef or turkey until it’s no longer pink.
  2. Drain any excess fat from the skillet and add taco seasoning according to package instructions. Stir well to combine.
  3. Reduce the heat to low and let the taco meat simmer for 5-10 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together.
  4. In a separate skillet or non-stick pan, sprinkle a generous amount of shredded cheese in a circular shape (about the size of a small tortilla).
  5. Let the cheese melt and slightly crisp up around the edges, forming a cheese shell.
  6. Once the cheese is crispy, carefully spoon the taco meat onto one-half of the cheese shell.
  7. Using a spatula, gently fold the cheese shell over the taco meat, creating a burrito shape.
  8. Cook for an additional minute to seal the edges of the cheese shell.
  9. Carefully transfer the Cheesy Burrito Taco Thingie to a serving plate.
  10. Serve hot with your favorite toppings such as salsa, sour cream, guacamole, diced tomatoes, or lettuce.
