Burrito in a Cup

This Burrito in a Cup is a really tasty and very easy recipe! It's inspired by a dish from an old cookbook I had. In the cookbook, the recipe did not include specific amounts of ingredients—it just listed the ingredients to layer in a paper cup. So I decided to use small glass canning jars and I came up with specific amounts of each ingredient to use, making this recipe much easier to follow! :)

You just can’t go wrong with a convenient meal like this…it’s quick, doesn’t involve any cooking because you’re using leftovers, and extremely easy to put together. Keep this in mind the next time you need a super-simple meal!
