1 medium onion, diced
1.5 pounds ground beef
1 cup salsa *more if wanted
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
1 small can green chiles
1 can refried beans
1 can green chile sauce
3/4 cup grated Cheddar, plus extra for sprinkling
burrito-size flour tortillas (makes approx 8-10)
1/2 cup fresh parsley
1-2 green onions, diced
sour cream *optional
1/4 cup water or beef stock** see below
You can control the 'heat' in this dish by using mild to hot salsa, green chiles and green chile sauce...
In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the onions until softened. Then add the ground beef and cook until the beef is cooked through. Add the cumin, chili powder and garlic salt and stir to combine. Pour the salsa and green chiles into the meat mixture and simmer over low heat, covered for 10 minutes or until cooked thru. Add a little water or beef stock if the mixture gets too dry.
While above mixture is simmering, heat the refried beans and the green chile sauce in saucepans over medium-low heat or microwave in microwave safe containers.
When meat is ready, fill center of burrito wrap with meat and fold around (I add shredded cheese to inside of wrap with some green chiles sauce before plating. Drizzle the green chile sauce over all of the burritos and sprinkle with more grated Cheddar. Dollop with sour cream and diced green onion.
