Another one of my mother-in-law's recipes...she could and did make a burrito out of anything. This is just one of her quick recipes that she taught me to cook for his lunches when we were first married.

    Tear off a piece of wax paper of aluminum foil and lay 1 tortilla in the middle. Spoon 2 tablespoonfuls of meat mixture down the center of the tortilla. Sprinkle some more cheese on the meat. Fold one side of the tortilla over the meat and pull it tight against the meat; fold each end up towards the middle and continue rolling into a burrito. Wrap the tortilla in the wax paper or foil and place seam down in a warm, covered pan.
