Recipe of the Week – Baked Beef Burritos

Submitted by Volly Nelson


1 1/2 pounds of ground beef
1/2 to 3/4 of a cup of water
1 package powdered taco mix
1 can refried beans
8 large flour 10” soft taco shells
1 can diced tomatoes with chilies
Shredded lettuce
1 large jar of salsa
1 can tomato soup
16 ounces of shredded cheddar cheese


1. Fry hamburger completely and add taco mix and water, mix together well. Add refried beans and simmer until burger mixture cooked through.

2. In 9 X 13 pan, lay out taco shells one at a time and put about 1/8 of the burger mixture in the middle. Add about 2 tablespoons of the tomatoes and a small amount of the lettuce.

3. Tuck each end of the shell toward the inside, then roll the shell in a tube shape with ends folded to the underside. Complete with remainder of shells.

4. Mix the salsa with the tomato soup, and pour evenly over all shells, including ends of rolls.

5. Top shells and salsa mixture with the shredded cheese, and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.

Plain diced tomatoes can be used to take the spice level down. Also, the taco mix can be eliminated. The salsa can be a very mild one, although something is needed, but another can of plain diced tomatoes could be used to eliminate all spices. Try adding minced cilantro for a wonderful mild taste.
