I'm addicted to Tex Mex, and it's slowly but surely clogging my arteries. I'm told these are called "wet burritos," although I have yet to find a Tex Mex restaurant that calls them that. Anyhow, here's my lower in fat version of a dish I simply can't live without. You can use pre-prepared beans and rice or give it your own flair by making them from scratch. Add or omit ingredients as you like to create your own perfect burrito!

  2. Prepare sauce: Heat canola oil in saucepan; stir in flour and chili powder to form thick paste; cook 30-60 seconds.
  3. Add chili powder, cumin, broth, tomato sauce, salt, & garlic powder. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, & simmer 8-10 minutes. Set aside.
