Best Beef, Bean and Cheese Burritos

Ingredients

  • 6 burrito size flour tortillas (we prefer raw tortillas)
  • 1 1/2 cups sharp cheddar cheese , more or less to taste

Burrito Filling

  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 4-6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt plus more to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 16 oz. can refried beans
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup salsa (medium for more of a kick)
  • hot sauce to taste

Customizable Filling/Topping Ingredients

Instructions

  • Add onions and beef to a large skillet and cooked over medium heat until onions are softened and meat is cooked through. Add garlic and sauté for 30 seconds. Drain off any excess fat (if there is any).
  • Stir in all of the spices/seasonings, followed by refried beans until well incorporated, followed by sour cream and salsa. Heat through.
  • If using raw tortillas, cook according to package directions. If using cooked tortillas, stack them together on a plate, cover with a damp paper towel and microwave for 30 seconds or until warmed through.
  • Line the middle of each tortilla with desired amount of cheese. Top with Bean and Beef filling and any additional desired filling ingredients.* Fold in the edges of each tortilla and roll up “burrito style.” Serve with additional sour cream, guacamole, etc. (optional).
  • Optional to “crisp” burritos: Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add burritos, 3 at a time, seam side down, and cook until golden, about 2-3 minutes per side.

Notes

*You can also stir desired amount of cheese directly into bean and beef filling on the stove.

    The ingredients calculator on this recipe does not work when you change it to 6 servings (or more) it zeros out all the ingredients when you change it to ANY number, actually. Just thought I’d let you know.
