Inspired in the 1980s by a popular fast food chain, I have been making these for years! They are requested often and sometimes during the holidays! Very easy to put together and fun too!

Ingredients

  • 3 pounds ground beef
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 10 ounce can black olives, sliced
  • 2 packages taco seasoning
  • 1 package burrito seasoning
  • 2 20 ounce cans refried beans w/jalapeno
  • 1 10 ounce can hot chili
  • 2 28 ounce cans hot enchilada sauce
  • 1 pound medium cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 pound pepper jack cheese, shredded
  • 10-12 large flour tortillas

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees
In a large skillet, brown beef, then drain. Return beef to pan and add taco and burrito seasonings, along with 2 cups water. Bring to a boil, then simmer, uncovered, until liquid is absorbed. While meat mixture is simmering, combine the refried beans and the hot chili and add to a 3 quart sauce pan. Turn heat to low and stir occassionally. Combine cheeses in a large bowl.
Gas range skip this step
Heat electric range top (glass top works too) to high heat and wait 1-2 minutes, until the burner is red hot. Carefully drag a tortilla over the range top to brown. Repeat on other side. Tortilla should be browned, yet pliable.
Place tortilla flat on a plate. Add 1/3 cup of the bean mixture in a straight line down the center of the tortilla. Then add 2/3 cup of the beef mixture, 2 teaspoons each of the onion and olives, then ½ cup cheese. Roll (taquito style) onto a greased broiler pan or large baking pan. Repeat for remaining burritos.
When you have filled the sheet, cover the row of burritos with 1 can of enchilada sauce per sheet (5-6 burritos). Sprinkle remaining cheese , onions and olives.
Bake at 400 degrees for 30-40 minutes, or until bubbly in the center.
Serve with Guacamole, sour cream and hot sauce. Yield: serves 10
Notes: I like to serve mine with spanish rice, refried beans with cheese and tortilla chips.
