How to make it

  • Note: These wrap and roll easier if you make the meat filling ahead and let it cool. If I have time, I make the filling the day before and refrigerate overnight.
  • 1. Enchilada Sauce (optional): In a med. saucepan over med-high heat, add butter and 3 cloves garlic. When butter is melted, stir in flour until well blended. Cook for 3 minutes or until mixture is nice and bubbly. Gradually whisk in beef broth. Continue stirring until broth becomes thick and starts to boil. Slowly stir in tomato sauce, 4 tsp. chili powder, cumin, sage, and salt. Allow sauce to come back to a boil, then remove from heat. Set aside.
  • 2. In a large saucepan over med-high heat, brown ground beef. Drain off fat. Add onions, green bell pepper, Anaheim chile pepper, 1 clove garlic, 1 tsp. chili powder, and oregano. Cook until onions and peppers start to soften. About 6-8 minutes. Mix in 1 cup enchilada sauce, stewed tomatoes, and refried beans. Stir until well blended. Simmer 15 minutes.
  • 3. Place a flour tortilla in front of you. Pour beef filling on the lower third of the tortilla, leaving about 3 inches of room at the bottom and 1-1/2 inches on each side. Place 3 tablespoons of cheese over the beef filling. Fold the lower portion of the tortilla over the beef, fold in the sides, and roll. Place the burritos in a 13 x 9 inch pan.
  • 5. Pour the remaining enchilada sauce evenly over the burritos. Top with remaining cheese. Bake at 350, uncovered for 30 minutes or until cheese is melted.
  • 6. Serve with your favorite toppings.

    " It was excellent "

    This was a great dish! I halved the recipe and got 6 fajita size burritos. I did make a few slight changes like making my own refried beans, I also added whole pinto beans to the mixture and a little pinto bean juice because it was full of flavor. (I cooked my beans from dry with seasonings.) The homemade enchilada sauce was great! I did add a couple tablespoons homemade taco seasoning to the meat mixture as well. I will make this again! Thank you for sharing!
