Easy Beef and Bean Burritos

Barbara Scott


Sometimes I just have to have some Mexican food but I don't want to go out to a restaurant. I usually keep everything in this recipe on hand so when I get the craving, I whip them up right here in my kitchen. Easy, tasty, and satisfying.

Stove Top


1 lb

3/4 c

1 clove
garlic, minced
2 tsp
chili powder
1 tsp
dried oregano
1/2 tsp

1/2 tsp

16 oz. can pinto beans or 1 can refried beans
1/2 c
enchilada sauce
10 inch flour tortillas
shredded lettuce
garnishes: sour cream, shredded cheddar, chopped tomatoes, guacamole

Directions Step-By-Step

In a large skillet over medium heat, cook ground beef, onion, and garlic until meat is browned, stirring often to break up meat. Drain well. Add chili powder, oregano, cumin, salt, and pepper; simmer for 10 minutes. Add beans and 1/2 cup of enchilada sauce. Heat thoroughly.
Wrap tortillas in foil and place in a 350° oven to heat for 10 minutes. Spoon about 1/2 cup of the ground beef mixture onto each tortilla; sprinkle with cheddar cheese, sour cream, and chopped tomatoes. Roll tightly and place seam-side down on serving platter lined with shredded lettuce. Recipe makes 6 burritos.
NOTE: I have also used some cooked rice with this recipe and thought it was tasty. Just layer it with the rest of the ingredients in the tortilla. Your choice.
