- 2 scallions – diced
- 1/2 green pepper – finely chopped
- 1 tbsp minced garlic
- 1 cup salsa – or as desired
- salt & pepper to taste
- 1 tsp ground red chili flakes
- 10 flour tortillas
- 1 1/2 cups Monterrey Jack cheese – more or less, as you wish
- 1 cup cheddar cheese – more or less, as you wish
- Beginning with 3 quarts of cold water, cook beans until tender. Season to taste. Mash beans up and set aside.
- Brown beef with peanut oil, cayenne pepper, pepper, chili powder, paprika, cumin, and chili flakes.
- Add in scallions, garlic, peppers, and stir through.
- When beef is well browned and peppers are tender, drain fat off.
- Stir 3/4 of salsa into bean mixture. Add in half of cheeses.
- Spoon bean mixture into flour tortillas. Then, spoon beef mixture.
- Arrange burritos in an oiled baking dish topping with the rest of the salsa and cheese, and cover with foil. * Tip: At this point, you may opt to BBQ the burritos to make beautiful grill marks, then serve with salsa & extras on the side.
- Bake at 350 degrees F for about 15 – 20 min, then serve.
If you wish to freeze burritos, wrap separately in foil tightly. When ready to eat, bake in foil at 350 degrees F for about 35 – 40 min.
