Smothered Bean and Beef Burritos

One more recipe from my friend, Jen.

These are super easy and really good. You can chose your "spice level" by the enchilada sauce you use. You can also really dress these bad boys up, but my kids are plain Janes. I found this on the Pioneer Woman's website.

1 lb of ground beef
1 can black beans, drained (sometimes I use pinto, whatever you have on hand)
1/4 cup or 1 packet of taco seasoning
1 can of enchilada sauce ( I just used the small one)
flour tortillas
grated cheese
toppings of your choice: sour cream, olives, avocado, salsa, etc

*In a pan brown the beef till done, drain. Add the beans and taco seasoning. (I add a little water as well) Add a little of the enchilada sauce. Maybe about half the can or so. When meat mixture is heated through, get your plates ready!!! For each person fill the desired amount of tortillas with the meat mixture. Add a little cheese and fold. I just wrap the two sides in and then place the seam down on the plate. Pour some enchilada sauce over the top of burrito and add grated cheese. Put in the microwave for just enough time to melt the cheese. Top with whatever fixins you delight in. I usually serve this with chips and salsa. So good. You can add so much to the meat mixture, onions, tomatoes, corn, the list goes on.
