This is one of the favorites in our house and sooo easy to double, triple, quadruple.
1 lb ground beef ( cooked)
1.5 cups frozen corn
1 bottle taco sauce
2 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon Garlic salt
1 teaspoon cumin
1 can Refried Beans
12 10 inch tortilla shells
2 cups of shredded cheese
Combine ground beef, corn, taco sauce, chili powder, garlic salt and cumin. Stir until well blended. Spread a thin layer of beans on each of the tortillas
Spoon 1/4 cup of beef mixture down the center and top with 2T of shredded cheese. Fold sides in and roll up, burrito style, and place seam side down.
Freezing directions: place burritos seam side down in a gallon bag.
Serving directions: Place seam-side down on a lightly greased pan. Brush tortillas with melted butter. Bake in oven preheated oven at 425 for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
1) We had no ground beef in the house so I made these with chicken this time. I have made them with beef and they are great also.
2) I do not use taco sauce instead I just put in a bottle of our homemade salsa
3) My kids are not big fans of refried beans on the shell. So I do half without and half with. Although, I do bury half the jar of refried beans in the mix and they cant tell that.
4) I usually vary the shells- some white, some wheat, whatever we find appealing at the time.
Price breakdown: depending on when and where you purchase your food it could vary
1 lb chicken $1.20
1.5 cups of corn $.60 (this is guess because this is from our freezer from the summer)
1 jar of salsa $1.00( this is a guess because this is homemade)
1 jar of refried beans $..79 ( you may have some left)
Tortilla shells $1.50
Total: $6.09 This makes approx 12 Chimichangas that is $.51 per chimi This will easily feed our family dinner with a few leftovers.
As I said this recipe can easily be doubled and frozen for future use- today I quadruple made this.
