How to make Cheesy Taco Pockets

Step 1: Cook the ground beef, crumbling the meat as it cooks. When done, drain the excess grease. To the ground beef, add a packet of taco seasoning (make sure to follow the packet instructions).

Step 2: Place the cream cheese in a medium-sized mixing bowl. Beat it until almost fluffy. Gradually add the salsa, mixing well.

Step 3: In the centre of a tortilla, add a spoonful of salsa mixture, then spread. Over the salsa, spoon enough ground beef to cover it, then top with cheese. Now, fold the tortilla and place it on a greased cookie sheet.

Step 4: With melted butter, brush the tops of the burritos. Place in a 350 degrees F oven and bake for about 15 minutes or until golden brown. When done, take the cheesy taco pockets from the oven and serve garnished with taco toppings. Enjoy!
