  • 1 1/2 pound ground beef lean
  • 1/2 large sweet onion diced
  • 2 tablespoons taco seasoning homemade is best
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 15 ounce can refried beans
  • 10-12 8" Flour Tortillas
  • 2 cups grated Muenster cheese
  • 3 cups enchilada sauce homemade
  • Mexican crumbling cheese for topping optional
  • raw chopped sweet onion for topping


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Heat a skillet over medium high heat and add ground beef. Breaking the beef up with a spoon, add onion after a few minutes. Drain grease if necessary.
  • Add the homemade taco seasoning and water. Cook on medium heat until mixture has thickened and water has absorbed. About 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. 
  • Meanwhile, empty refried beans into a bowl, with a large spoon, slightly flatten out the beans so they'll heat more evenly. Microwave the beans until just warm so they'll spread better. About 40 seconds to 1 minute.
  • Ladle 1 1/2 cup of the homemade enchilada sauce on the bottom of a 9 x 13 casserole dish. 
  • Lay a flour tortilla on a plate. With a spoon spread a heaping spoonful of refried beans on the tortilla. Top with about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of the ground beef mixture. Top with a couple of heaping tablespoons of grated cheese. 
  • Roll up and place seam side down in the enchilada sauce in the casserole dish. Repeat until burritos are filled. Depending on how much bean and beef mixture you use for each, this could be 10 - 12 burritos.
  • Drizzle the remaining enchilada sauce over the burritos and sprinkle with additional cheese. Add Mexican Crumbling cheese if you wish. 
  • Bake 350 degrees or until all is bubbly and heated through.
