1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
4 tomatoes, chopped(optional)*,see below
2 cups chopped cooked roast beef
1 (8 oz) jar prepared taco sauce, served on the side
1 (4 oz) can diced green chile peppers
1/2 tsp cumin**, see below
1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes, or to taste
6 (7 inch) flour tortillas, warmed (these should be just heated not fried).
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
Lettuce, chopped or shredded
Sour cream


1. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium high heat. Stir in the onion and garlic and cook until tender and transparent, about 5 minutes. Mix in the tomatoes, roast beef, chile peppers, cumin, and red pepper flakes. Bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer uncovered for 25 minutes or until thickened.

2. Arrange tortillas on a clean flat work surface. Spread about 2/3 cup of beef mixture in the center of each warm tortilla. Sprinkle evenly with cheese, taco sauce, sour cream and lettuce. Fold ends inward and roll over to make the burrito.

Makes: 6 burritos


*Although this calls for tomatoes they are optional.
Tomatoes shouldn't be in burritos anyway.

** Also this is kind of bland with seasoning. Your option would be to use instead of cumin a Packaged burrito seasoning mix according to package directions.
