Kickin Red Burritos

These burritos are so good!  In the past the only kind of burrito I've made is the kind you add taco seasoning to and then roll up in a tortilla.  This was an exciting change of pace (yes exciting, I love food okay?).  Not to mention that if you're juggling a lot of things, this is still pretty fast and easy to make.  A great big PLUS in my book.  This also goes fantastic with tortilla corn chips.  I use them to scoop up some of the red sauce that's left over on the plate.  

Anyone remember when Wal-Mart used to have little concession like area in the back? They served slushies, hot dogs, nachos, and burritos with corn chips.  It tastes like that.  Wow, talk about taking me back to a simpler time!

  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic

  • Crumble ground beef into a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir until evenly browned. Add onion, and cook until translucent. 
  • Drain grease, and season with garlic, cumin, salt and pepper. Stir in the green chilies and refried beans until well blended. Turn off heat, but keep warm.
  • In a saucepan, combine the chili without beans, tomato soup and enchilada sauce. Mix well, and cook over medium heat until heated through. Turn off heat and keep warm.
  • Place a warmed tortilla on a plate, and spoon a generous 1/2 cup of the ground beef mixture onto the center. Top with lettuce and tomato to your liking. Roll up tortilla over the filling. Spoon a generous amount of the sauce over the top, and sprinkle with cheese. Heat in the microwave for 30 seconds, or until cheese is melted. Repeat with remaining tortillas. Top with sour cream if desired.
