Enchilada Syle Burritos

This is a recipe I got several years ago from a Quick Cooking Magazine, the magazine has since changed it’s name to Simple and Delicious. I have made a few modifications from the original recipe.

This a a good way to fancy up good old frozen burritos. You could used canned enchilada sauce and do the same thing, but I really like this recipe for the sauce. I made the sauce thicker than what the original recipe was. The original recipe also used bean and cheese burritos, but we usually have beef and bean.

  • 3 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1¼ cups water
  • 1 (8 oz) can tomato sauce
  • 1½ tsp chili powder

  • ¾ teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded Mexican cheese blend or cheddar cheese
  • 1 (2¼ oz) can sliced ripe olives, drained, optional
  • ⅓ cup chopped green onions, optional
  1. Place frozen burritos in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking dish; set aside.
