  • Wet Burrito Sauce
    I love to cook mexican food but my wet burrito sauce is fair at best. I am looking for a good sauce to add to my cookbook.

    Here's a recipe my mother got from a friend at work over 20 years ago and I've been making it ever since. Real easy to convert into a casserole also!

    Wet Burritos
    4 lbs ground beef
    large green pepper
    large onion, diced
    2 cans refried beans
    1 tbsp chili powder
    1 tbsp cumin
    1 tbsp garlic powder
    pkg taco cheese 2-3 cups

    sauce (I don't care for this sauce, but some do, I cheat and just use canned enchilada sauce):
    1 can beef broth
    1 can tomato paste
    cumin, garlic powder to taste
    1 cup burrito meat

    To make burritos: Saute pepper and onion. Add beef and brown. Drain excess fat. Add seasonings and 2 cans of refried beans. Simmer until beans are cooked through and mixed in thoroughly. Place desired amount on burrito sized tortillas, fold up, and place seam side down in baking pan. Pour sauce over burritos. Sprinkle with cheese and bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes.

    To make sauce, combine ingredients and bring to boil. Thicken like gravy, then pour over burritos.

    Pour half of this in the bottom of a large casserole or 9x13-inch baking dish, spreading it evenly across the bottom.
    Brown and cook through the ground beef with the onion and bell pepper; drain any fat.
    Stir in taco seasoning, mushrooms and refried beans, mixing well.
    Spoon mixture onto tortillas, rolling tortillas up and placing them seam-side-down in the casserole dish.
    Top with remaining soup/cream mixture and sprinkle with the cheese.
    Place a few sliced black olives or jalapeno slices on top of the cheese, if desired.
    Bake at 350F for 30-35 minutes or until cheese is melted and dish is heated through.

    Absolutely wonderful. I've tried so many "burrito casserole"recipes and none of them really did the trick before finding this recipe. It came together like a dream and i only made minor changes--left out the bell pepper, the mushrooms and left out 2 cups of the cheese, and it didnt hurt the dish one bit. creamy, flavorful and makes a bunch!!!!!!My DH calls them "comfort burritos"he was very happy with the meal. Big Thanks, PeggyLynn — Apr 13, 2005

    WOW!! Really good. The thing I did different was instead of making individual burritos I assembled this in layers-cream sauce-4 tortillas-meat sauce-cheese-4 tortillas-meat sauce-cream sauce and than cheese. It cut beautifully. SHH--my DH detests mushroom(or he thinks he does) so I crushed dehydrated mushrooms, and he and our DS's never noticed! — Apr 13, 2005

    One bite was all We needed to know this would definitely make to our table again. Was very easy to put together, and smelled so good while cooking. I had some minced jalepenos in the fridge so I spread that over each burrito before I put the sauce on top. Then I sprinkled black olives over the whole top. The only change I will make next time is to use hot taco mix, and put a bit of peppers into the filling for heat. Great easy dinner. Thanks. — Apr 12, 2005
