Beef and Bean Burritos
3-4 cups cooked ground beef (1 1/2 lbs.)
1 t. chili powder
1 t. cumin
2 T. water
1 can green chilies, optional
1 package of 10-12 flour tortillas (soft taco size)
1 large can chili beans
3/4- 1 cup water
2 cups grated cheddar/jack cheese
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Reheat cooked meat, chili powder, cumin and water in medium pan over medium heat. Remove from heat and add green chilies.
Drain the chili beans, saving the red sauce. Mash beans until you get a refried bean texture, you can add a little water to loosen beans. Fill one tortilla with meat, beans, & cheese. Fold and lay in greased casserole dish.
After the dish is full, mix remaining beans to reserved red sauce, plus 1/2 cup water then pour over burritos. Add any leftover meat mixture and cheese for topping.
Cover with foil and bake for 30-40 minutes. Can be prepared earlier that day and left in refrigerator until ready to cook.
Serve with rice, salsa, sour cream, and tortilla chips.
