As lovers of all things Mexican, wet burritos are a family favorite here as chicken enchiladas are as well.
This recipe uses things you most likely already have on hand, and the nice thing about it is that it feeds my entire family, too.
I love recipes like this since aside form cooking the meat, everything comes together really well, and as I talked about it Freezer Staples For Stress-Free Meals, I almost always have ground beef that is already cooked and ready to go in my freezer. If this is something you do, too, this recipe can come together in a flash.
For this recipe you will need:
for the shells:
- 1 pound ground beef
- 1 medium onion
- 1 package of taco seasoning (I make my own)
- 1 can of refried beans (I make my own)
- 1 cup water
- 10 flour tortilla shells
- 8 ounces shredded cheddar cheese (we prefer sharp)
for the sauce:
- 1 envelope brown gravy mix
- 1 16 ounce jar of taco sauce
- 1 15 ounce can of tomato sauce
- 1/2 cup water
for topping (this is what we have, you can use whatever you like):
- shredded lettuce
- diced tomatoes
- sliced black olives
- green pepper
- tortilla chips (frugal tip! this is a great way to use up the crumbs at the bottom of the bag!)
Then, add meat mixture into tortillas, roll, and add to 9×13 pan sprayed with cooking spray. Combine ingredients for sauce and pour over the tortillas. Add cheese. Place in 350 degree oven to heat through and until shoes melts. Word of caution…mine often bubbles over so add a tray underneath to avoid a mess!
Remove from oven and serve with toppings. Sooo good!
