Enchilada Style Burritos

by Laura

This recipe for enchilada style burritos is on I got several years ago from a Quick Cooking Magazine. The magazine has since changed it’s name to Simple and Delicious. I have made a few modifications from the original recipe.

This a a good way to fancy up good old frozen burritos. You could used canned enchilada sauce and do the same thing, but I really like this recipe for the sauce. I made the sauce thicker than what the original recipe was. The original recipe also used bean and cheese burritos, but we usually have beef and bean.

Enchilada Syle Burritos


  • 6 frozen prepared beef and bean burritos (you could use whatever type of frozen burritos you like, I also just put as many burritos as I can fit in my 9x13 pan which is usually 8-9)
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 3 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 1 (8 oz) can tomato sauce
  • 1 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp beef bouillon granules
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded Mexican cheese blend or cheddar cheese
  • 1 (2 1/4 oz) can sliced ripe olives, drained, optional
  • 1/3 cup chopped green onions, optional


  1. Place frozen burritos in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking dish; set aside.
  2. In a saucepan, melt butter. Stir in flour until a smooth; gradually stir in water. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Add the tomato sauce, chili powder, bouillon, cumin and salt. Simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes or until thickened.
  3. Pour over the burritos. Sprinkle with cheese, olives and green onion if desired. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until heated through. Serves 6 or more, depending on how many burritos you use.
