16ouncesof refried beansyou can also use kidney beans
2-3cupsof cheddar cheese
burritos shellsthey just need to be made a bit larger than normal!
8ozbrown gravyI make my own with stock
2 1/2tspchili powder
water for thinning the sauce if needed
Brown beef, add in taco seasoning to taste.
Once the meat is browned, you can add the beans (or if you’re like me and don’t like them refried, make a few burritos “beef only” first, then add the beans). Set aside.
Mix together sauce ingredients in a saucepan over medium-low heat until combined.
Roll the meat mixture up into the burrito shell and place into a 9×13 pan.
Cover with the sauce and top with cheese.
Bake for about 20 minutes in a 350 degree oven.
Serve with lettuce, onion, sour cream, tomato, and whatever else you find enjoyable. They are super easy and taste great!
Gluten Free Variation: Cook up 2 cups of brown rice (let it soak first for extra nutrition) and lightly season with the taco seasoning. I also add in some chopped red onion and fresh tomatoes as well when I can take them right out of the garden. Layer a 9×13 pan with rice, beans, and seasoned meat. Cover with burrito sauce and top with cheese. Bake as usual.
