Julie's Red Burrito's

When my children were growing up I used to make homemade burrito's...after all... we LOVE Mexican food at my house. These are quick and easy and taste delish! Serve them with a plate of rice or a side of tortilla chips. Can't beat that for easy and scrumptious!

Julie's Red Burrito's
1 bag home style tortilla shells
1 lb. ground beef, cooked and drained
1 can refried beans
1/2 package taco seasoning
1 large can red enchilada sauce (any brand you like)
2-3 c. grated cheese

Warm tortilla shells in the microwave for 30 seconds...this makes it easier to roll them when the time comes. Place refried beans in a microwave safe dish and warm for 2-3 minutes. Stir taco seasoning in with warm beans. Place a spoonful of refried beans down the center of tortilla shell. Repeat with a spoonful of ground beef and some cheese. Roll shell, folding both ends and then rolling like a burrito. Continue until you have the desired amount of burritos that you want. Heat enough oil to cover the bottom of a frying pan (I use my large electric frying pan and turn the temperature to 375). Place rolled burrito's in pan with HOT oil. Cook on medium high (if your using your stove top) 1-2 minutes on each side or until each side is browned and crispy. Pour enchilada sauce over the top and cover for 1 minute. Turn heat down, top with cheese and cover for 1 more minute. Serve.
