I can’t remember exactly how I came across this recipe. I think it came in an email or something from Taste of Home. It’s a quick and easy recipe. There really isn’t anything exciting about the ingredients. However, the way you cook this burrito is different, you fry it. So I think this is technically a chimichanga, but who cares what you call it, it’s good. Give this quick and easy recipe a try. (It’s even quicker if you already have taco meat)
1 pound ground beef
1 envelope taco seasoning
1 can (16 ounces) refried beans
6 flour tortillas (12 inches), warmed
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Colby-Monterrey Jack cheese
4 teaspoons canola oil
Sour cream and salsa
In a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Stir in taco seasoning. In a small saucepan, cook refried beans over medium-low heat for 2-3 minutes or until heated through.
Spoon about 1/3 cup of beans off-center on each tortilla; top with about 2 rounded tablespoons of beef mixture. Sprinkle with cheese. Fold sides and ends of tortilla over filling and roll up. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, brown burritos in oil on all sides. Serve with sour cream and salsa. Yield: 6 servings.
