Burritos and Salsa

By Monica Resinger

I hope your family enjoys this meal as much as mine! My 19-year-old son,  especially, always requests this and has for years.

Burritos
Serves 4

1 lb. Ground Beef
1 Can (16 oz.) Refried Beans
1/2 lb. Shredded Cheddar Cheese
8 Flour Tortillas (6 inch)
Salsa (see recipe below)
Sour Cream, optional
Black Olives, optional


Cook the ground beef until no longer pink, then drain off the grease. Put  the refried beans into a microwave-proof bowl and heat about 1 1/2 minutes or  until hot. Heat the tortillas in the microwave about 1 1/2 minutes also. Let  everyone assemble their own burritos by spreading a thin layer of refried  beans on the tortilla first, then adding the cheese, then the beef. Top with  salsa and other optional ingredients then roll up (fold 2 sides in first, then  roll lengthwise).

Food Processor Salsa

15 oz. can of Tomato Sauce
1/2 of a 15 oz. can Water
1/2 of a Jalapeno Pepper
1/4 of a Medium Onion
1 Garlic Clove
2 Tbsp. Cilantro
Salt to taste
Garlic Powder to taste


Put jalapeno and garlic into a food processor fitted with chopping blade and  process until finely minced. Add onion and process until onion is the size  you like. Add tomato sauce, water, and cilantro and pulse until combined.  Taste, then add salt and garlic powder to taste. Serve as a dip to tortilla  chips or with burritos, tacos, quesadillas or other Mexican dishes.
