Fast Food

These are burritos that sort of look like enchiladas, and that taste like a hybrid of the two.
When you are craving enchiladas, but its too hot to turn the oven on, BOOM, here's your solution.
Another wonderful recipe from The Pioneer Woman, if you don't know of her, you should
These were extremely quick and very delicious, you should add this to your weekday meal plan, they are easy, versatile and delish.
You can switch up the filling ingredients and create an entirely new recipe, so if you need to you could serve these to your family twice in one week and they probably wouldn't even realize you were repeating.  Tricky!
I opted to use enchilada sauce and I think it added the perfect flavor, tomato sauce would probably be tasty too, you be the judge.  Let me know what you think!

Beef and Bean Burritos
2 lbs ground beef (I used ground turkey)
1 medium onion, diced
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp ground oregano
1/4 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp salt
(I doubled each of these spices, probably because turkey doesn't absorb flavors quite like beef)
Two, 7 oz cans Mexican tomato sauce or enchilada sauce
one, 28oz can refried beans
3/4 cup grated cheddar cheese, plus extra for sprinkling
12 burrito size flour tortillas
1/2 cup cilantro leaves, torn
mexican rice
sour cream
roasted green chiles
pico de gallo

In a large skillet, over med heat, cook the beef and onion until beef is cooked through. 
Add cumin, oregano, chili powder and salt and stir to combine.
Pour 1 can of the sauce into the meat and simmer over low heat for 5 min, add a little water if it gets too dry.
Meanwhile heat the refried beans in a saucepan over medium low heat.  Add the cheese...
And stir it until its melted.  Remove from heat.
Heat tortillas in microwave for 1 min, then spread a small amount of beans on each tortilla.
Add small amount of the meat, add any other optional ingredients you may be using or just keep it simple and leave them as they are.
Fold over the ends of the tortilla, then roll them up.  Place 2 burritos on a microwave safe plate.
Drizzle some of the second can of red cause over the top, and sprinkle with more cheese.
Microwave the burritos for 1 min or until the cheese is melted.  Repeat with the rest of burritos.
Sprinkle the tops with cilantro leaves and serve immediately.
