Russ’s old roommate makes the best burritos ever. my family usually makes double batches and they are usually gone within a day.
we had them for dinner last night and they were excellent as usual. so i decided i would share them with you.
1 lb ground beef
Salt and pepper to taste
Light sprinkle onion and garlic powder
1 pkg flour tortillas
2 cans refried beans
Heavy sprinkle of chili pepper
10 oz cheddar cheese
2 tb tomato paste
Crumble chorizo, brown and drain. Repeat w/ beef, adding seasoning
Mix in large microwaveable bowl meat, beans and tomato paste. Mix well, heat covered on high in microwave for 2-3 minutes. Mix in cheeses. Divide mixture among tortillas and roll.
Line baking pan and cover burritos with foil. Bake at 375* for 15 min or until cheese melts
Note: it usually yields about 12-15 burritos from medium sized tortillas. if you can’t find chorizo, hot Italian sausage works well. if you want chorizo find the grocery store near you that serves the largest Latino population, the Food Lion next to my house usually sells 4 different kinds of chorizo.
