Smothered Beef and Bean Burritos

Alright, we tried out this Food Storage Recipe and it is a definite go! You can do a lot of different things to it by way of topping. I just did cheese this time, but I think after baking, next time top with sour cream, shredded lettuce and olives and oh my goodness- heaven!

Sorry about no picture, we ate them so fast when it dawned on me to take one they were demolished!


2 cans pinto beans
½ lb ground beef
1/2 pkg taco seasoning
½ onion, chopped
½ jar salsa
8 oz shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1 can diced chilies
8-10 flour tortillas (the uncooked Costco kind are the best-cook first, obviously)
Red Enchilada sauce


Brown meat, drain, then add onion and taco seasoning (add about ¼ c water to pan). Cook until onion is tender. Add chilies and salsa. Puree beans in blender until smooth, and then add to pan. Stir in cheese, mix well. Spoon onto tortillas and fold up. Wrap in foil and bake @ 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Remove foil, place in baking dish, and smother with enchilada sauce and shredded cheese, return to oven and bake at 425 until cheese is bubbly. You can also freeze them in the foil for a quick meal later. Just bake at 350 for 45 min (in foil). For kids, I omit the hamburger and just have bean and cheese burritos.
