Cheesy Beef Burritos Recipe
This is a delicious recipe for beef and cheese burritos.
I love Mexican food and this burrito recipe is so tasty, I want to make it every time I see it.
It calls for two cheeses, cream cheese and grated cheddar or Monteray Jack cheese.
Combine the ground chuck, chopped pepper and onions in a large skillet. Cook until the beef is browned. As the meat cooks add the salt, oregano, cumin and garlic powder. Add the cream cheese and stir until combined. Drain off the pan drippings.
Fill each tortilla with 1/4 cup of beef mixture. Sprinkle each burrito with a bit of grated cheddar cheese. Roll up and place seam side down in a 12"x7"x2" baking dish coated with cooking spray. Cover and bake at 350°F for 20 minutes.
While the recipe is baking, combine the tomatoes, diced chilies, cornstarch, sugar and coriander in the container of a blender. Process until smooth. Pour the tomato mixture into a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat. Simmer for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Place each rolled tortilla on 1/2 cup of lettuce. Top with the tomato sauce and a dollop of yogurt. Garnish with fresh chillies, if desired.
Makes 10 servings.
