What You'll Need:
- 1 pound ground Beef/Turkey
- 1/2 cup onion, chopped
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1/2 tsp. cumin
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1/8 tsp. pepper
- 1 (4.5 oz.) can diced green chiles
- 1 (16 oz.) can refried beans
- 1 (15 oz.) can chili, without beans
- 1 (10 oz.) can condensed tomato soup
- 1-2 (10 oz.) can regular/green enchilada sauce
- 6 (12 inch) flour tortillas, warmed
- 2 cups lettuce, shredded
- 1 cup fresh tomatoes, chopped
- 1/2 cup green onion, chopped
- 2 cups shredded cheese
What You Need to Do:
- Crumble ground beef/turkey into skillet over medium heat. Cook until evenly browned. Add chopped onion and cook until slightly clear. Drain oil (if any), sprinkle in and season with minced garlic, cumin, salt, and pepper. Stir in and let sit for about a minute or so. Turn heat on low and keep warm.
- In separate sauce pan, mix chili without beans, tomato soup, and enchilada sauce. Mix together well on medium heat until heated through. Turn heat on low and keep warm.
- Heat tortilla in the microwave for about 5 to 10 seconds a piece. Place warm tortilla on plate, spoon a large scoop (about 1/2 cup) of ground beef/turkey mixture on center. Top with as much lettuce and tomato as you would like. Roll up tortilla over filling. Spoon as much enchilada mixture over the burrito and sprinkle with cheese and green onions. Heat in the microwave for about 30 seconds (or until cheese is completely melted). Repeat with other tortillas.
To jazz up your burrito a little more, add a small amount of these ingredients:
- Sour Cream
- Salsa of your choice
- Dirty Rice
Either fill or top your burrito with these four ingredients. It adds a little extra pop to the mix.
