  •  These were really easy (think 10 minute prep) and tasty. Would freeze really well too so while you're at it, make a double batch and throw some in the freezer in a ziplock bag. Remove and thaw in the fridge or at room temp then pop in the microwave for a minute or so until heated through.
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 can refried beans (I like Amy's brand with the green chiles) 
  • 2/3 cup enchilada sauce (or make yor own - see here, scroll down to recipe 3)
  • 1/2 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded colby/jack cheese
  • 10 large flour tortillas

  1. Brown and drain meat. Stir in the remaining ingredients (except tortillas) and bring to a simmer.
  2. Simmer and stir for a few minutes or until heated through.
  3. Put about 1/2 cup of the mixture in each flour tortilla, towards one side, closest to you/edge of counter. Fold in the sides a bit on the left and right and then holding those folded sides in, start rolling up from the bottom closest to you towards the top.
  4. Serve with rice, chopped lettuce, etc.
