1 pound lean ground beef 1/4 cup all-purpose flour 1 tablespoon chili powder 1 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon dried minced onion 1/2 teaspoon paprika 1/2 teaspoon onion powder 1 dash garlic powder 1/2 cup water 1 can (16 ounce size) refried beans 8 flour tortillas (10-inch) 1/2 cup enchilada sauce 3/4 cup sour cream 2 cups shredded lettuce 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese 1 medium tomato, diced 1/2 cup diced yellow onion
In medium bowl, combine ground beef with flour, chili powder, salt, minced onion, paprika, onion powder and garlic powder. Use your hands to thoroughly mix ingredients into ground beef.
Add seasoned beef mixture to water in a skillet over medium heat. Mix well, and break up meat as it cooks.
Heat for 5 to 6 minutes or until browned. The finished product should be very smooth, somewhat pasty, with no large chunks of beef remaining.
Heat up refried beans in covered container in microwave for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes.
Place flour tortillas on microwave-safe plate and heat for 30 to 45 seconds.
Build each burrito by first spreading about 1/4 cup of refried beans on center of heated tortilla. Spread a portion of the meat mixture over beans, then pour about a tablespoon of the enchilada sauce over meat. Stir sour cream well, then spread about 1 1/2 tablespoons onto burrito. Arrange some of the lettuce, cheese, tomato and onion onto the tortilla.
Fold end of tortilla closest to you over the filling. Fold either the left or right end over next. Then fold the top edge over the filling. Serve immediately.
Soooo good! This is easy to prepare, even though it calls for a lot of prep work. The flavor was perfect and all burritos were gobbled up. To lower the fat you can use vegetarian/fat-free refried beans, fat-free sour cream, and reduced fat or fat-free cheese. Since this recipe isn't cooked after assembling the fat free dairy products will work well.
