beef main dish

wet burritos

I had a craving for these yesterday, and kinda made the sauce as I went. Good thing it was yesterday, and I still remember! Sauce 1st:

make a roux with 3 tbs butter and 4tbs flour to it, add- 1 8oz can tomato sauce(I used Spanish-style), 1 tsp cumin, 1 wooden spoon of chili powder, few dashes garlic powder, 3/4 of the can with water, 1/4 of the can with half n half, and a wooden spoon of tomato paste. Bring to a boil over med-high heat. Salt/pepper if needed. It will thicken up nicely.

For the filling: brown 1lb ground beef, 1 can diced green chilies,salt,pepper,(few dashes to taste) and 2 wooden spoons of refried beans.

Place 2-3 tbs of filling on 10″tortilla, roll up and place seam side down in a casserole dish. Cover with foil and bake at 350 for 30 min. Uncover,top with cheese and place under the broiler for a few minutes to melt.  This ended up tasting like something from a GOOD Mexican restaurant! (as opposed to the BAD ones! LOL)
