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.

How to Make Beef & Bean Burritos

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray shallow baking dish with PAM. Drizzle a little enchilada sauce on bottom to help prevent sticking.
  • 2Brown ground beef until cooked. (You can also add minced onion, cumin, etc. if desired.) Drain off fat.
  • 3Meanwhile, add 1 cup cheddar cheese to refried beans and slowly heat in sauce pan.
  • 4When 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.)
  • 5Simmer mixture while you prepare toppings of your choice (lettuce, tomatoes, etc.)
  • 6When 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.
  • 7Fold sides in and then fold bottom of tortilla up toward top, carefully rolling it up - it takes some practice.
  • 8Place seam side down in baking dish. Continue to make burritos and add to baking dish.
  • 9Pour 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.
  • 10Bake until cheese is melted and sauce is bubbly.
  • 11You can also microwave this dish, but I prefer to bake it in the oven.
  • 12When ready to serve, place on platter and top with lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream, and other toppings as desired.
