Easy Beef and Bean Burritos

This is a quick dinner that I make every now and then. It's always good. I've also made it using ground turkey or shredded chicken.

9x13 glass dish
Preheat oven to 350F

1 pound lean ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 clove garlic, minced
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 can (16 oz) refried beans
1 can (10 oz) enchilada sauce, divided (use mild...the hot is really really hot!)
6 flour tortillas, 8 inch
Garnish: shredded cheese, sour cream, salsa, chopped tomato, olives...whatever you like!

In a large skillet cook ground beef, onion, and garlic until ground beef is no longer pink, stirring to break up meat. Drain well.

Add chili powder, oregano, cumin, salt, and pepper; simmer for 5 minutes. Add refried beans, and 1/2 cup enchilada sauce. Cook until heated through.

Spoon beef and bean filling into tortilla (sometimes I add a little cheese when I do this). Fold the ends of the tortilla and wrap. Place in dish seam-side down. When all burritos are made, spoon remaining enchilada sauce over burritos. Garnish with cheese.

Bake at 350F for 15-20 minutes, or until hot. Serve!
