I got this recipe from a good friend of mine several years ago. It is easy and good! :)
Make and share this Smothered Burritos recipe from Food.com.

- Warm tortillas in microwave.
- Put 1/2 cup or more of cheese/beef mixture into each tortilla.
- Roll and place in greased 13x9 pan. (You will probably need 2 pans for this.)

Served with some red rice, this dish is super creamy and yummy with just the right amount of kick! I halved the amount, and made this as directed using Johnny Jalapeno's Easy Refried Beans and large sized tortillas. I also sprinkled some shredded queso melting cheese over the tops before baking. We really enjoyed the flavor of this dish. Thanks for sharing this recipe. :)
We liked these! Being from California, we don't use Velveeta as much out here as the rest of the country. I would make again but increasing the amount of rotel to Velveeta. Thanks SweetsLady for posting. Made for Potluck Tag, please see my rating system as 3 stars means we really did like it.
My family really enjoyed these burritos. My DDs don't enjoy refried beans, but they didn't think they could taste them in this recipe. I liked it that these burritos were more moist them just a ground beef filling. We definitely will add this to our regular schedule.
