Ready In:




  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  • In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the ground beef, until the beef browned. While beef is browning, mix together in a small bowl, the chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, paprika, cumin, salt pepper and cornstarch. After beef is browned, sprinkle the seasoning mix over the beef and mix well. Stir in water and simmer until water has evaporated, about 10 minutes.
  • In a medium bowl, mix together sour cream, cream of chicken soup, green chilies and cheese.
  • Mix about half of the cheese mixture with the ground beef. Divide the meat mixture evenly between tortillas and roll up. Place in a 9 x 13 inch baking dish. Repeat for each tortilla. Spoon remaining cheese mixture over the top of the tortillas.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 30 minutes.
  • Allow to cool for about 5 minutes then serve with desired garnish.

    Added half tsp more of chili powder and a tsp of hot sauce for more of a “kick”. It was messy to roll, but I’m not a good roller (lol). Turned out great and would definitely make it again!

    While easy to make found it to be bland. Put some enchilada sauce on top to add a bit more flavor.

    These burritos were really different. I loved the sour cream, cheese, soup mixture. This dinner was a hit.

    For more of a “kick” add 1/2 tsp more of chili powder to seasoning and add 1 tsp of hot sauce to cheese/soup mix


I grew up in Tucson but moved to Colorado in 1989 and live in a household with my husband, Dad, daughter and 3-year old twin granddaughters. Our 8-year old grandson spends 2 nights a week with us. All of that adds up to often difficult menu ideas to met everyone's tastes. Zaar is very addicting and I love trying the recipes I find here. I like to find recipes of people that I see are still active on Zaar and love it when I hear back from the Chef after I review the recipe. Everytime someone reviews one of my recipes, I like to find one of theirs to make and review as quickly as possible. It's a way for me to find great chefs I don't know yet too! My husband has high blood sugar so we try to watch our carbs, but it is not easy because we love them so much! I was diagnosed with brain tumors in 2005 and so far have had 5 surgeries that have left my eyelid droopy. I hope to have a surgery that will correct that soon!! There is still one tumor they have not removed but my wonderful doctor James Garrity at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester MN says they will leave it alone until or if it ever causes problems!
