The other night I was trying to come up with a fast, easy, and inexpensive meal for my family. I needed to use things I had on-hand as pay day was a few days away and I had nothing left in the grocery budget.
So I got on Pinterest and started looking. After looking and looking, I decided I could make some pretty delish burritos out of a few items I had on-hand. This recipe is mine, although I was inspired by the many other burrito recipes I saw.
Flour tortillas (I like the smaller ones, but the big ones will work well, too.)
1/4 lb. ground beef
1 can of fat-free refried beans
1 can of salsa con queso
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Brown the ground beef. You can add a little taco seasoning to the meat, if desired. I used 1/4 lb. of ground beef because it is all I had in the house...you can certainly use more.
Take one tortilla and slap some refried beans onto it and spread it out. Add a little ground beef on top and a dollop of salsa.
Roll the ingredients together and place seam side down in a baking dish.
Continue the process until all burritos are made. I made 6 burritos in a 9 x 9 baking dish using only 1/2 can of refried beans, 1/4 lb. of ground beef, a 1/4 jar of salsa and a full jar of salsa con queso. There is plenty of salsa con queso, so you could make more. I used more beans and salsa for the ones pictured here (4 smaller burritos and 3 larger ones in a 9 x 13 baking dish).
Cover your burritos with foil and bake for 20 minutes.
