Flour tortillas filled with a beef and bean mixture, topped with enchilada sauce and served with sour cream, salsa, cheese, tomatoes and other typical Mexican ingredients. Beef and bean burritos are an excellent main dish or appetizer, great in taste and easy to make.
Preparation time: 10 minutes, Cooking time: 15 minutes, Serves: 6 


1 lb lean ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp dried whole oregano
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 (16 oz) can refried beans (or equal amount of homemade refried beans)
1 cup enchilada sauce
6 (8 inch) flour tortillas
Shredded lettuce

Chopped tomatoes
Sour cream
Sliced ripe olives
Shredded cheese


In a large skillet over medium high heat cook the ground beef, onion, and garlic until the beef is no longer pink, stirring and breaking up any lumps that form. Drain well and return to heat.

Add the chili powder, oregano, cumin, salt, and pepper; lower heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Add the refried beans and 1/2 cup of the enchilada sauce, stir and cook for a few minutes until heated through.

Wrap tortillas in foil and bake at 350 F (125 C) for 10 minutes, or until heated through.

Spoon about 1/2 a cup of the ground beef mixture on each warm tortilla. Roll tightly and place seam-side down on a serving dish lined with shredded lettuce. Repeat the procedure for all burritos, placing each one next to the other on the serving dish.

Spoon remaining enchilada sauce over the burritos, garnish with one or more of the garnishing ingredients and serve.
