Smothered Beef & Bean Burrito

Mouth Watering Beef & Bean Burrito Recipe!

Prep Time

15 Minutes

Cook Time

35 Minutes




  • 2 lbs of Ground Beef
  • 1 Large Onion (diced)
  • 1 16 oz Can of Refried Beans
  • 1 Packet of Taco Seasoning
  • 1 Teaspoon of Garlic 
  • 1 Teaspoon of Oregano
  • 1 Teaspoon of Cumin
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of Salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of Pepper
  • 2 10 oz Cans of Enchilada Sauce
  • 1 lb. of White American Cheese (divided)
  • 6 Large (burrito-size) Flour Tortillas
  • Fresh Cilantro for garnish (optional)


    1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a 3-quart 13x9 baking dish with cooking spray.
    2. Pour half of 1 can of enchilada sauce in the bottom of the baking dish then spread evenly.
    3. Brown and crumble beef with onions over high heat in a large skillet until beef is cooked through; drain fat.
    4. Add refried beans; taco seasoning and remaining spices to skillet then stir well. Add a little water if necessary but filling should be very thick. Remove from heat to cool a little.
    5. Taste for seasoning then add more salt if necessary.
    6. Shred cheese then add one heaping cup of it to beef and bean mixture; stir and combine. Set remaining cheese aside. 
    7. Arrange tortillas on a clean work surface then divide meat filling evenly onto the center of each. Using a rubber spatula or the back of a spoon, shape the filling into little rolls about 4 to 5 inches long, centered left to right on the tortilla. Wrap each into a burrito then place seam-side down into the baking dish.
    8. Slowly drizzle remaining enchilada sauce (one and a half cans) over burritos, taking care to pour over all of the exposed tortillas. IF needed, use a pastry brush to spread the sauce over nay "dry" areas.
    9. Top each burrito with remaining cheese.
    10. Cover dish with foil, tenting the foil if necessary to ensure it doesn't stick to the cheese. Bake at 375 degrees for 35-45 minutes or until cheese is completely melted and sauce is bubbly.
    11. Garnish with fresh chopped cilantro if desired. Serve with favorite burrito toppings such as pico de gallo, salsa, sour cream, avocado slices, more cheese, shredded lettuce, etc.

    Optional Step | Non-List Directions

     Instead of using 1 lb of American Cheese you can use 4 cups of shredded cheese.
