Beef and Bean Burritos


60 min


  1 pound lean ground beef
  1/2 cup chopped onion
  1 clove garlic, minced
  2 teaspoons chili powder
  1 teaspoon dried whole oregano
  1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  1/2 teaspoon salt
  1/4 teaspoon pepper
  1 can (16 ounces) refried beans
  1 can (10 ounces) enchilada sauce, divided
  6 flour tortillas, 8-inch size
  shredded lettuce
  Optional garnishes: shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, sour cream, salsa, sliced ripe olives, shredded cheese


  In a large skillet cook ground beef, onion, and garlic until ground beef is no longer pink, stirring to break up meat. Drain well.
  Add chili powder, oregano, cumin, salt, and pepper; simmer for 5 minutes. Add refried beans and 1/2 cup of the enchilada sauce. Cook until heated through; keep warm.
  Wrap tortillas in foil; bake at 350° for 10 minutes, or until thoroughly heated. Spoon about 1/2 cup ground beef mixture on each warm tortilla. Roll tightly and place seam-side down on a shredded lettuce-lined serving platter. When all burritos are made, spoon remaining enchilada sauce over the burritos. Garnish with your choice of toppings.
  Burrito recipe makes 6 servings.
