Beef and Bean Burritos


Now, this isn’t the fanciest of suppers. It IS, however, tasty, filling, and fast, which makes it a winner in my book. Even better, these are super customizable. We kept it pretty simple- just beef, spices, and cheese- but throw in some veggies or rice (or both!) and you’ve got a great well rounded meal in less than 20 minutes.

1 lb ground beef
1/4 medium-sized onion, diced
1 can Enchilada Sauce
Salt And Pepper, to taste
1 pkg taco seasoning (or make your own)
1 can (28 Ounce) refried beans
3/4 cups shredded cheese (cheddar, cojack, whatever you’ve got handy)
6-8 burrito sized flour tortillas

Brown ground beef with onion and seasoning, adding salt and pepper to taste. Pour in a little over half of the can of enchilada sauce and simmer over low heat.

Heat refried beans in a saucepan or nuke for about 3 minutes. Add cheese and stir in till melted.

Heat tortillas in microwave for about one minute, or until soft and workable. Spread a schmear of beans on each tortilla…

Add meat…

Fold over ends…

And roll up.

Please note my inadequacy at uniform burrito rolling. I promise, they taste equally good whether they look pretty or not! 😉 Place two burritos on a microwave-safe plate. Drizzle some enchilada sauce over the top and sprinkle with more cheese. Microwave for about one minute, or until cheese is melted.
Time to eat! See- easy peasy, great for when you’re in a pinch for a super quick dinner.
