Beef Burritos Recipe
Living in Arizona, we enjoy all sorts of foods with Southwestern flair, such as these beef-stuffed tortillas. The recipe is easy to make and easy to serve—folks can assemble their own burritos with their choice of garnishes. — Amy Martin, Waddell, Arizona
- 2 bone-in beef chuck roasts (2-1/2 to 3 pounds each)
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 cup water
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 teaspoons dried oregano
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- 1 can (28 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
- 2 cans (4 ounces each) chopped green chilies
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup cold water
- 4 to 6 drops hot pepper sauce
- 18 flour tortillas (8 inches), warmed

- 1. In a Dutch oven over medium heat, brown roast in oil; drain. Add water, onion, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 2 to 2-1/2 hours or until meat is tender. Remove roasts; cool.
- 2. Remove meat from bone and cut into bite-size pieces. Skim fat from pan juices. Add tomatoes and chilies; mix well. Add meat; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 30 minutes.
- 3. Combine flour and cold water; mix well. Stir into beef mixture. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thickened and bubbly. Add hot pepper sauce.
