Smothered Beef and Bean Burritos

The Pioneer Woman had these on her website.  These are very basic, but in the past we've always done our beef enchiladas/burritos in the oven.  We thought her way was easier, faster, and even yummier than the way we've been doing it!  Enjoy!

Prep Time 5 Minutes
Cook Time 11 Minutes
Servings 6

  • 2 pounds Ground Beef 
  • ½ whole Medium Onion 
  • 1 can (7 Ounce) Mexican Tomato Sauce Or Enchilada Sauce 
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste 
  • Cumin, Oregano, Chili Powder, Garlic To Taste 
  • 1 can (28 Ounce) Refried Beans 
  • ¾ cups Grated Cheddar Cheese 
  • 12 whole Burrito-sized Flour Tortillas 
  • Extra Grated Cheese, For Sprinkling

  • Optional Filling Ingredients: Mexican Rice, Sour Cream, Guacamole, Green Chilies, Pico De Gallo 
Preparation Instructions:

Brown ground beef with onion and season to taste. Pour in sauce and simmer over low heat. Add water if mixture gets too dry. Heat refried beans in a saucepan. Add cheese and stir in till melted. Keep warm. Heat tortillas in microwave for one minute. Spread a small amount of beans on each tortilla. Add meat. Fold over ends, then roll up. Place two burritos on a microwave-safe plate.

OPTIONAL: Fill burritos with any optional ingredients you like.
