Yesterday was Cinco de Mayo. Texas is pretty close to Mexico... And we needed an excuse for margaritas & Corona. So Happy Cinco de mayo it was. And this was also the perfect excuse to try Ashley’s Beefier Bean & Cheese Burritos. Delicious!! This recipe comes together so fast and easier, you can make this a few margaritas into your night and not mess it up. Anyway, it was a great Cinco de Mayo meal... Margaritas weren’t bad either.
Beefier Bean & Cheese Burritos
1 lb. lean ground beef
1 packet taco seasoning
1 cup water
4 cans Ranch Style Beans, drained & rinsed
1 can diced Hatch green chiles
10 Kraft Single Slices, or shredded cheese as desired
20 fresh flour/wheat tortillas
Saute ground beef in a large skillet until browned. Drain grease. Add taco seasoning, green chiles and 1 cup of water. Simmer until water has evaporated. Add drained & rinsed Ranch Style beans. Simmer 10-15 minutes. Partially mash using a potato masher until desired consistency achieved. If using shredded cheese, mix in cheese until desired cheesy consistency.
Fill each tortilla with a heaping 1/4 cup of beef/bean mixture. Top with 1/2 slice of cheese. Fold tortilla.
