Description

A quick and easy meal to make your family if they’re banging their forks on the dining table.

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds Ground Beef
  • ½ whole Medium Onion
  • 1 can (7 Ounce) Mexican Tomato Sauce Or Enchilada Sauce
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • Cumin, Oregano, Chili Powder, Garlic To Taste
  • 1 can (28 Ounce) Refried Beans
  • ¾ cups Grated Cheddar Cheese
  • 12 whole Burrito-sized Flour Tortillas
  • Extra Grated Cheese, For Sprinkling
  • Extra Sauce, For Drizzling
  • Cilantro Leaves (optional)
  • Optional Filling Ingredients: Mexican Rice, Sour Cream, Guacamole, Green Chilies, Pico De Gallo

Preparation

Brown ground beef with onion and season to taste. Pour in sauce and simmer over low heat. Add water if mixture gets too dry.

Heat refried beans in a saucepan. Add cheese and stir in till melted. Keep warm.

Heat tortillas in microwave for one minute.

Spread a small amount of beans on each tortilla. Add meat. Fold over ends, then roll up. Place two burritos on a microwave-safe plate. Drizzle red sauce over the top and sprinkle with more grated cheddar. Microwave for one minute, or until cheese is melted and burritos are very hot. Serve immediately.

OPTIONAL: Fill burritos with any optional ingredients you like. (I love them full, but my boys like them very plain.)

Made these last night! So quick and easy! My family loved them. The red sauce makes it….a little too spicy for my daughter (she wanted some ranch to go with hers). Thanks for this EASY, week-day friendly recipe! :)

These are lip smacking good!! I used “Red Enchilada Sauce” from PW site by Emily and mixed some in with the meat and poured the rest on top along with some extra grated cheese. I also covered mine in foil and used the oven instead of the microwave. They were even better the next day. Husband and son loved them!!

I make this at least twice a month and every time I make it my family licks their plates clean!!! I mix a small can of El Pato tomato sauce with a small can of hot enchilada sauce. I also use ground turkey instead of hamburger. If I have yellow rice on hand I will layer that in with it! This usually makes a dozen burritos which is perfect for us to be able to enjoy these two nights!!

My picky kid and my semi-picky husband both loved these. I loved that they were fairly simple and came together rather quickly.

Here’s what I did (differently) to mine: I used a whole onion; 1 tsp. ground cumin; 1/2 tsp. oregano; 1/4 tsp. chili powder; 3/4 tsp. salt; 1 tsp. garlic powder; 1-28 oz. can El Pato tomato sauce (won’t use it all); I put about half of the tomato sauce and all of the spices on the meat and simmered. Once I had the meat and beans prepared separately, I mixed them together to put on the tortillas. I filled the tortillas and placed them in a glass baking dish that had been sprayed with cooking spray. I then spooned 2-3 tbsp. of the tomato sauce over top of each burrito (just about enough to thinly cover). I then put cheese on top of the sauce. Put them in the oven at 350 for 5-10 min or until the cheese melts.

I will definitely be adding this to my “keepers!”

My family LOVES these. They taste very similar to Taco Bell’s Beefy Five Layer Burritos. Delish!

delicious and just spicy enough for my “sensitive mouths” to enjoy them! Everyone else added a little more spice, but the idea is great, and we do this on hurried nights also!
