1 lb ground beef
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp cumin seed
1-2 tbsp chili powder
1 can diced tomatoes with green chillies
1 can refried beans
8 flour tortillas
1 can whole green chillies, sliced into strips
1 small onion, chopped
Cheddar cheese, grated
Lettuce, shredded
Tomatoes, diced
Picante sauce or salsa


Start the meat frying with the oil in a skillet.  Add the salt, pepper, oregano, cumin and chili powder, then cook for about 3 minutes.  Add the diced tomatoes with green chillies and simmer for about 15 minutes.  Add the beans and simmer, stirring until thickened.

For each burrito, spread on some of the beef and bean mixture, top with strips of green chilli, onion and cheese.  Roll up and place in a lightly greased baking pan.  Bake in a 350 F oven for 15-20 minutes

Scatter some lettuce and tomatoes on each plate, place the burrito on top and pass the sauce or salsa.
