Wet Burritos

Sure, here’s a delicious recipe for wet burritos:


For the burritos:
– 1 pound ground beef or turkey
– 1 onion, diced
– 2 cloves garlic, minced
– 1 bell pepper, diced
– 1 can (15 ounces) black beans, drained and rinsed
– 1 can (4 ounces) diced green chilies
– 1 teaspoon ground cumin
– 1 teaspoon chili powder
– Salt and pepper, to taste
– 1 cup cooked rice
– 8 large flour tortillas
– 2 cups shredded cheese (cheddar, Monterey Jack, or a blend)

For the enchilada sauce:
– 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
– 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
– 1 can (15 ounces) tomato sauce
– 1 cup chicken or vegetable broth
– 2 teaspoons chili powder
– 1 teaspoon ground cumin
– 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
– Salt and pepper, to taste

Optional toppings:
– Chopped fresh cilantro
– Diced tomatoes
– Sliced avocado
– Sour cream
– Sliced jalapeños


1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

2. Using a spoon, break up the ground beef or turkey as it cooks in a large skillet over medium heat to brown it.
3. Stir in the black beans, diced green chilies, ground cumin, chili powder, salt, and pepper. Cook for a few more minutes, or until thoroughly cooked and mixed. Remove from heat and set aside.

4. In a separate saucepan, heat the vegetable oil over medium heat. Stir in the flour to create a roux, cooking for about a minute until lightly golden. Gradually whisk in the tomato sauce and chicken or vegetable broth until smooth. Add the chili powder, ground cumin, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Bring the mixture to a simmer, stirring constantly, until the sauce has thickened slightly. Remove from heat and set aside.

5. To assemble the burritos, spoon a portion of the meat mixture and cooked rice onto each tortilla. Sprinkle with shredded cheese, reserving some for topping later. Place the tortillas seam-side down in a baking dish and roll up, tucking in the edges as you roll.
6. Pour the enchilada sauce over the rolled burritos, ensuring they are all evenly coated. Sprinkle the remaining shredded cheese on top.

7. Bake the burritos in the preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.

8. Serve the wet burritos hot, garnished with your choice of toppings such as chopped cilantro, diced tomatoes, sliced avocado, sour cream, and sliced jalapeños.
