Smothered Burrito Heaven
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1/2 cup chopped onion
- 1 teaspoon minced garlic
- 1/2 teaspoon cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon Anything Goes Seasoning
- 4.5 oz can diced green chile peppers
- 16 oz can refried beans
- 7 oz can tomato sauce
- 10 oz can enchilada sauce
- 15 oz can no bean chili
- 6 flour burrito size tortillas (12 inch)
- 2 cups shredded lettuce
- 1 cup of chopped tomatoes
- 2 cups shredded Mexican blend cheese
- Dried chives for garnish
Place cooked ground beef in sauce pan and season with the garlic, cumin, and Anything goes seasoning. Stir in the green chilies and refried beans until well blended. Turn off heat, but keep warm.
In a saucepan, combine the tomato sauce, no-bean chili, and enchilada sauce. Whisk together until mixed well, and cook over a heat to heated through medium. Turn off heat and keep warm. Click for a whisk.
Place a burrito sized tortilla on a plate and place about a 1/2 cup of ground beef mixture onto the center. I divide the beef mixture into six equal portions. Top with a little cheese and lettuce. You can substitute or add other veggies as well.
Fold in the left and right side of the tortilla over the filling, holding in place with your fingers. Then fold in the top and bottom sides of the tortilla over the filling (like envelope) and place seam side down in greased 9 x 13 safe dish oven. Click for a 9 x 13 baking dish.
Pour the entire saucepan of the sauce over the top.
Cover the top with cheese.
Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes until the burritos are heated through and cheese is melted. Top with more lettuce, tomato, sour cream and dried chives.
