Optional Toppings


  • Preparation: Preheat oven to 350℉. Spray a large baking dish with non stick spray, set aside.
  • Cook Meat: Prepare the ground beef by cooking in a large skillet over medium heat until completely cooked through, no longer pink. Drain the grease and return to stove over low heat.
  • Season: Add the taco seasoning and tomato sauce. Stir to combine. Allow to cook over low heat for another 2-3 minutes then remove from heat and set aside.
  • Fold Burritos: Layer flour tortillas with ingredients slightly off center in the tortilla. Leave at least a 1 inch border to the edge of the tortilla. For each tortilla use 1/4 cup of meat, beans, rice, and sprinkle with cheese. Roll burrito tightly, folding the ends in, and place seam-side down in prepared baking dish. (leave space between the burritos, they shouldn't be touching)
  • Bake: Bake burritos for 15-20 minutes.
  • Heat Sauce: pour the enchilada sauce into a small saucepan and heat until warmed through over medium heat, until just starting to bubble along the edges of the pot. Remove from heat.
  • Sauce: Spoon the warm sauce over the top of the burritos. Top with additional cheese.
  • Bake: Bake for an additional 5 minutes or until cheese is completely melted.
  • Top burrito with shredded lettuce, sour cream and pico de gallo.



Freezing: follow directions through step 4 of forming the burritos. Then wrap in foil and place in a large freezer safe bag. Store in freezer for 2-3 months. To thaw, remove from the freezer and place in refrigerator overnight. Then bake according to instructions (bake time may need to be increased before adding sauce to ensure burrito is heated throughout)
