Beef and Bean Burritos

  • makes 8 to 10 6″ burritos
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1/2 onion, about 1/2 to 2/3 cup, diced
  • 1/2 Tablespoon minced garlic

  • 10 oz can tomatoes and green chilies
  • flour tortillas
  • cheddar cheese, finely grated

For Garnish:

  • cheese
  • sour cream
  • cilantro
  • green onions
  • diced tomatoes

Spray non-stick skillet.  Cook beef on medium until brown.  Add onions and cook 2 minutes on medium or until transparent. Add garlic and seasonings.  Put chili beans and tomatoes in processor and pulse until almost smooth. You can use a emulsion blender, blender or a fork works great also.  Add to ground beef and cook until reduced enough to put in tortillas.

Warm tortillas in microwave. Two at a time in-between two moist paper towels, for 20 seconds or according to directions on package.  Spoon a strip of beef and bean mixture on the bottom half, but not touching the end or sides. Fold end over mixture. Fold both sides in and over mixture. Roll, tucking sides as you go. Plate seam side down.  Top with your favorite toppings.
