Number of Servings: 6


    1-1/2 pounds Beef Stew Meat
    2 ea. 4 oz. cans Ortega Diced Green Chiles (or 1 ea. 7 oz. can)
    1 ea. 15 oz. can Sun Vista Pinto Beans
    1 Onion, chopped
    1 tsp. Salt
    6 ea. 1/3 c. servings Shredded Fat Free Cheese
    6 ea. Mission Flour Tortillas - Soft Taco Size

    Makes 6 ea. 1 cup servings


Cut stew meat into bite size pieces and brown it with the chopped onion in a non-stick sauce pan. Add the rest of the ingredients and pour enough water in the pan to cover the meat mixture. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 1 to 2 hours (the meat will be more tender if you cook it for 2 hours).

Put one flour tortilla on a plate and sprinkle half of the 1/3 cup of cheese on it. Microwave it until the cheese is melted. Pour 3/4 c. of the burrito mixture on the tortilla, fold it and flip it over. Spread the rest of the cheese and the other 1/4 c. of the burrito mixture over the top of the burrito and microwave again until the cheese is melted.

Serve with spanish rice or just a green salad.

  • Mmmm, this was good! And convertible to crock-pot cooking too! I made it into a casserole and baked it, rather than nuking the cheese. - 1/11/08

  • My whole family loved these! (Well, all but my baby girl, but she's just too dang picky! LOL!) I made them with black beans instead of pinto, but everything else was the same. Delish! - 12/4/07
