Smothered Beef and Bean Burritos

Take your fiesta to another level by smothering these beef and bean burritos in a sour cream and green chili sauce.


  • 2 lbs ground beef
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 2 Tbsp dried minced onion
  • 3 cans (4 oz each) diced green chilis
  • 1 can (30 oz) refried beans
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1215 flour tortillas
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups sour cream
  • shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, sliced black olives for garnish


  1. Cook the ground beef and dried minced onion in a large skillet on medium heat until browned. When it is almost done, add the cumin, chili powder, coriander, and one can diced green chilis.
  2. When beef is browned, stir in refried beans and water. Remove from heat, stir to combine and cover with lid.
  3. Meanwhile, in a medium sauce pan, melt the butter. Add the flour and whisk together. Cook for one full minute while bubbling. Slowly stir in the chicken broth. Let come to a bubble and continue stirring for 5-10 minutes until it thickens enough to coat the spoon.
  4. Remove from heat and stir in sour cream and 2 cans diced green chilis.
  5. To assemble the burritos, spread about 1/4 cup of the beef mixture down the center of the tortillas and top with 2-3 Tbsp of shredded cheese. Fold up two ends and then roll in to a burrito.
  6. Place burritos in a pan and then smother with the sour cream green chili sauce.
  7. Garnish with lettuce, tomatoes, olives, and any extra cheese.
  8. Enjoy!
