Beef and Bean Burritos

As many of you may have noticed, I love Mexican food. It’s amazing. I am a born and raised New Englander, though. So, I can’t claim to know what ‘good, authentic’ Mexican food tastes like. I just make it the way I know how. Sometimes I take shortcuts, too.

That’s where this recipe comes in. It’s a super easy recipe for delicious beef and bean burritos. My family gobbles these up and always asks for more.

Easy, 5 Ingredient, Beef and Bean Burritos by Om Nomalicious

Beef and Bean Burritos

1 1/2 Pounds Beef
1 Can Enchilada Sauce
1 Can Refried Beans
8 Tortillas
1 1/2 Cups Cheese

Preheat oven to 350F.

Put the beef in a baking dish and cover with the enchilada sauce. I used precut beef. You can definitely use a roast or steak. You’ll just have to cut it into smaller pieces after it’s cooked.

Bake the beef for about an hour, or until it’s fully cooked. Timing depends on the type of beef you use.

Spread 1/8th of the refried beans on each tortilla.

Using a slotted spoon to drain most of the enchilada sauce, evenly divide the beef onto the tortillas.

Top each burrito with cheese.

    These look great! We make beef and bean soft tacos all the time and I always end up rolling them up like burritos, but we’ve never tried baking the beef in enchilada sauce like this. I like how all of the burritos get sauced and then go in the oven again to melt the cheese. YUM!!

      The enchilada sauce adds so much flavor! And, nothing is better than melted cheese. You should definitely give this a try!

  3. Those look so cute! I love the size of them…..nice and small. I would say what you like and are cooking is called Tex-Mex food however, restaraunts that sell Tex-Mex are called Mexican. Then there is the New Mexico/Colorado factor (I used to live in Colorado) and the question there is always red or green? I’m a green (verde) girl as are my boys but my husband and daughter are reds. Cooking the beef in enchilada sauce like you did looks really good and it reminds me of Ranchero sauce which is really meaty. I’m going to make your burritos really soon because I usually just throw the frozen ones into a dish and pour the enchilada sauce over it.

      Burritos are amazing. I don’t think there’s a such thing as too many, haha.

      When I insert a gallery like that, it just shows up as a gray square in my ‘edit entry’ box. I can just type around it.
