If you are a fan of Taco Bell’s Beef and Bean Combo Burritos, then you should enjoy today’s post. I found this recipe posted by Carrie over at Cooking with Carrie. Now, I myself have never had Taco Bell’s Beefy Bean Burritos. However, according to Carrie, this copy cat version really does taste like the real thing.
The only problem I had with this recipe was there was too much garlic in it. And we are a garlic loving family. So I altered the recipe from 1/2 Tbsp garlic powder to 1 tsp. If you love the Taco Bell version give it a try. Then, let me know if it comes close to the original. And if you haven’t had the Taco Bell version like me, try these beefy bean burritos anyway.
It is a simple, inexpensive and quick dinner. You can make this probably just as fast as driving to get take out, waiting for your order, and then driving back home. These babies are ready in about 15 minutes. Plus, you could serve them along with tortilla chips and the Black Bean and Pineapple Salsa recipe from yesterday.
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1 ( 16 oz) can refried beans
- 2/3 cup enchilada sauce
- 1/2 Tbsp chili powder
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 1/2 cups shredded colby/jack cheese
- 10 large flour tortillas
- Brown and drain meat.
- Add all remaining ingredients,except tortillas. Stir the mixture and heat to a simmer/boil.
- Put about 1/2 cup of the mixture in each flour tortilla, fold the tortillas into burritos, and serve. (Store the extra burritos in a Ziploc in the refrigerator. To reheat the cold burritos microwave them for 30 seconds, flip, 30 seconds.)
