Beef Bean & Cheese Burritos
1 lb. ground beef
1 package taco seasoning
1 can refried beans
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
8-10 flour tortillas
Brown ground beef and season with taco seasoning. Reduce heat to low and stir in refried beans. Preheat a frying pan or griddle to medium-high heat. Place a generous scoop of the beef and bean mixture in the middle of a tortilla and top with some cheddar cheese. Roll into a burrito, tucking the ends in and place seam-down onto the heated griddle (sprayed first with nonstick spray). Repeat with remaining tortillas and brown on each side until crispy. Serve immediately or wrap in individual pieces of aluminum foil and freeze for up to 3 months.
To reheat from frozen: warm in the microwave for three minutes on 75% power, flipping over once. Or (for a crisp version), heat in the microwave on high for one minute, then finish heating in a medium heat pan or griddle on all sides until crisp.
