This dish is delicious and the sauce is the key. Omit the cayenne pepper to make it mild or add more to make it extra spicy. As is the recipe makes a medium heat burrito.

Sausage Beef & Bean Burritos

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 pound ground sausage
  • 1 can refried beans
  • 1/4 cup butter cubed
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 4 cups water
  • 3 TBS chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp salt ( I prefer natural sea salt)
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1-2 tsp olive oil
  • 12 flour tortillas
  • lettuce
  • cheese

In a large saucepan melt butter over medium heat, then whisk in flour adding water slowly as you whisk. Bring to a boil and cook for 1 minute to thicken. Then add cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, salt and cayenne pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. In another large skillet over medium-high heat cook onions and garlic in olive oil until softened. Add beef and sausage to onions and cook until meat is no longer pink, drain. Stir in refried beans and continue cooking until mixture is heated through. In a 13×9x2 casserole pan spread a thin layer of sauce. Fill each tortilla with a scoop of meat mixture plus 1 tsp sauce. Roll burritos and place in dish. Once dish is full drizzle remaining sauce over top and top with cheese. Cook in a 350 oven for 18-22 minutes or until cheese in bubbly and golden. Serve on a bed of lettuce and rice.

This dish freezes well simply stop after you add cheese and freeze.
