Beefy Bean Burritos

Saturday, July 11, 2009

For the past 3 weeks I have made these, we store the leftover burritos in the fridge and within a couple days they're gone! Everyone loves these burritos and it is rare that I find a dinner everyone gets excited about and fights over the leftovers! I modify Heidi's Brown Bag Burritos recipe to make these, they really do taste like Taco Bell's Beef and Bean Combo Burritos! I think everyone should make these, total cost is around $6 and they take 15 minutes to make... perfect for the working mom!

Ingredients
1 pound ground beef (I get the leanest I can find)
1 can refried beans
1 can enchilada sauce
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder (a dash)
1 bag (2 cups) shredded colby/jack cheese
10 large flour tortillas

Directions
Brown and drain meat. Add all ingredients, but tortillas. Stir the mixture and heat to a simmer/boil. Put about 1/2 cup of the mixture in each flour tortilla, fold the tortillas into burritos, and serve. Store the extra burritos in a Ziploc in the refrigerator. To reheat the cold burritos microwave them for 30 seconds, flip, 30 seconds. They are just as good reheated as they are fresh!

Our favorite is bean and beef and bean burritos. I have been making my refried beans from scratch and they are so good. Once you make them you wont go back to canned. You burritos looks so yummy and just like taco bell, good job.

I want these for dinner tonight..but I already put out some chicken to defrost. Do you think I could make it without the beans and just add more beef?

Carrie said...

Mommy's Kitchen, I would love to have your recipe for making homeade refried beans! I would have no idea where to start... seriously, what kind of bean is the refried bean?!

Amber, you could try it! I bet it would be good, let me know how it turns out! :-)
