Recipe by Bobbie
Instead of sandwiches in your brown bag -- why not try these burritos. Found in an old Taste of Home Magazine. Make ahead, freeze and pull one out when you need a quick lunch or snack.

I'm reviewing this recipe again because I did make these and put them in the freezer. I took one of the burritos for lunch on Friday and it was wonderful. Great idea and convenient to have these in the freezer and ready to take for lunch!
- 1 lb lean ground beef
- 1 (16 ounce) can refried beans
- 2⁄3 cup enchilada sauce
- 1⁄4 cup water
- 3 tablespoons minced onions
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons chili powder
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons garlic powder
- 3⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dried oregano
- 15 -20 flour tortillas (7 inch)
- 1 1⁄2-2 1⁄2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
Directions See How It's Made
- In a large skillet, brown the ground beef; drain.
- Add the next 8 ingredients; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 20 minutes.
- Heat 3-4 tortillas in a microwave until warm, about 45 seconds. Spoon 3-4 tablespooms of the beef mixture down the center of each tortilla.
- Top with 2-3 tablespooms of cheese.
- Roll up. Wrap each burrito in paper towel; then in foil. Repeat with the remaining ingredients. Refrigerate if using right away. Or freeze.
- Burritos can be eaten cold. If warming, remove the foil and place in microwave for about a minute. However, if frozen, they will take longer. I suggest warming for 45 seconds to a minute on 50% power to thaw some, and then completing the warming process at a higher power.
