Beef & Bean Burritos

This is an adaptation of Pioneer Woman's 16 minute burritos. It's become our "Friday Night Mexican Night." Better than any restaurants in our area and a lot less expensive too.

Ingredients

1 lb
ground beef
1 can(s)
el pato mexican tomato sauce (found in ethnic section) - this is very spicy, and don't even think of using the jalapeno sauce!
1 can(s)
mild enchilada sauce
2 c
grated cheddar cheese
1 can(s)
refried beans
4
large flour tortillas (warm in microwave, between damp paper towels)
1 c
shredded lettuce
1
diced tomato
sour cream for topping
guacamole

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray shallow baking dish with PAM. Drizzle a little enchilada sauce on bottom to help prevent sticking.
2
Brown ground beef until cooked. (You can also add minced onion, cumin, etc. if desired.) Drain off fat.
3
Meanwhile, add 1 cup cheddar cheese to refried beans and slowly heat in sauce pan.
4
When ground beef is done and fat is drained off, add 1/2 can El Pato tomato sauce to meat mixture. (I'm a wimp, so I have to add a few tablespoons of the mild enchilada sauce to tone it down.)
5
Simmer mixture while you prepare toppings of your choice (lettuce, tomatoes, etc.)
6
When cheese is melted and combined with refried beans, take a large tablespoon (or more depending on the size of your flour tortilla) and place in the center. Add a tablespoon of ground beef.
7
Fold sides in and then fold bottom of tortilla up toward top, carefully rolling it up - it takes some practice.
8
Place seam side down in baking dish. Continue to make burritos and add to baking dish.
9
Pour remaining sauce/s over burritos. (I use the mild enchilada sauce for me, and the spicy tomato sauce for my husband.) Top with remaining cheese.
10
Bake until cheese is melted and sauce is bubbly.
11
You can also microwave this dish, but I prefer to bake it in the oven.
12
When ready to serve, place on platter and top with lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream, and other toppings as desired.
