  • 1 pound ground beef or ground turkey
  • 1 16 ounce can refried beans
  • 2/3 cup enchilada sauce
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 3 tablespoons chopped onion
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 15-20 7- inch flour tortillas
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese


  • Brown the ground beef or turkey in a skillet over medium high heat until no pink remains. Drain away any excess fat.
  • Add the remaining ingredients to the skillet, except the cheese. Stir well.
  • Simmer over medium low heat 15 minutes until the sauce is slightly reduced and thickened.
  • Allow to cool slightly.
  • To fill tortillas, spoon 3-4 tablespoons of the filling down the center of the tortilla.
  • Sprinkle 2 tablespoons cheese over the filling and roll up, tucking in the sides as you roll.
  • Wrap each tortilla in paper towels and store the burritos in an airtight container or freezer bag in your refrigerator.
  • When you're ready to eat, microwave in the paper towel for one minute.
