I called them that because they fly off the plate and into your mouth because they are so good! They are not spicy, unless you want them to be and they can be vegetarian if you want them to be – and all at once!
Confused? Yes, Mr. Picky Eater says I can do that to people. I will just go with the recipe and you be the judge.
1 ½ pound hamburger
3 medium potatoes
Olive oil to cover frying pan
A little chopped onion (optional)
8 large tortillas
Few Jalapenos (optional)
2 Cups shredded cheese
1. Peel and cube potatoes and onions. Put 2 Tablespoons olive oil in pan and fry potatoes.
2. Cook until tender and there’s a little crust on them like this.
3. Put potatoes on paper towels to drain and set aside.
4. Fry hamburger meat and drain.
5. Put tortillas in frying pan one at a time, on each side, and heat.
6. Using No Stick Reynolds Wrap, place one tortilla down.
7. Then meat and potatoes.
8. Then cheese and optional jalapenos.
9. Fold in sides first.
10. Then fold the bottom up.
11. Then roll the top down.
12. Wrap up in foil
13. Place in simmering steamer for 15 minutes.
15. If Mr. Picky Eater didn’t like it – I made some more of those Crock Pot rolls so he could have Ham Biscuits instead but he really liked them a lot!
I want to thank Stacy at Food Lust People Love for naming my blog one of her faves – you are so sweet!
Happy Valentine’s Day to all!
oh my…these look so good! ( and Im not a big “peppers” fan.. ) =)
Happy Valentines Day!
Thank you – they are so good! This was really a practice run for a copy cat recipe I’m going to try soon – I think it’s going to turn out fantastic – but I wanted to use a cheaper set of food to try it – now I’ll use the more expensive cuts. No peppers probably!
I love a burrito, flying or otherwise! Jalapeños would be a must at our house, for everyone! And as for the thank you – not necessary – but you are most welcome! I just call ’em like I see ’em!
I would love these, probably with more onions.
Lillian – EXACTLY! I wanted more onion because I love it – My husband laughs and says I eat more onion than anyone he’s ever known – so I try to lay off the onion sometimes! 🙂
Mmm, potatoes, cheese and hamburger meat! I like how it’s kind of like a deconstructed cheeseburger!
Yes! That must be why Mr. Picky Eater and I liked it so much!! 🙂 But this is a dry run for another recipe with a much more expensive cut of meat – post coming soon!
My oh my oh my! I would definitely scarf a couple of these down in no time. Great idea! Thanks for being our first linkup at Weekend Potluck today. =) Enjoy a great weekend.
Thank you! Even the grandbaby loved it!

Nice! Hold the peppers for me (I’m a wuss) and serve ’em up!
These look delicious! You could also use sausage instead of hamburger and add some scrambled eggs to make breakfast flying burritos! Om nom nom!
I was just thinking about that and plan to do it soon – then freeze for breakfast before work!
That’s an awesome idea. I need to do that at some point, too 😉
We had a Flying Burrito restaurant here (for a while—I think it has closed). But I love the title of these.
Is that where I remember the name from? I honestly thought it was the name of a band from the 70’s or so, but maybe it was a place over there………..I’m working on a recipe that I’m trying to copy from Big Truck Tacos – have you ever been there? If so, it’s called the Rancher. If not, you have to go there next time you are in OKC. It’s on NW 23rd. If you like interesting hot dogs, Mutt’s down the street from them is a must as well – I have the Duck dog with duck fat fries – my mouth is watering just thinking about them all!
They look delicious! Found you on Farm Girl Friday! I would love to have you share this on The Creative HomeAcre Hop today!
Why thank you! And thank you for the invitation – always so nice to get one. I will come over and join in the fun!

Gotta love easy and versatile!
Hi. I have made these twice and my family loves them. I just looked the recipe up to make them again and have to ask what you seasoned the hamburger with? It looks orange so I am wondering if it’s Lawrys or maybe taco seasoning? Thanks!
Hi Kim – I’m so sorry I was out all day and didn’t get back to you! Yes, it is a package of Taco Seasoning – I hope I didn’t mess up any dinner plans by not being home….Thank you for dropping by and please come back again! Kelli
The Flying Burrito Brothers was a band long ago, with several famous people in it!
