Looking for a little spice in your life? Look no further than a delicious home-made burrito. Sometimes we make these with just beans but since we have our own beef now it’s a no-brainer to throw some ground beef in too. I always start making burritos by putting dry pinto beans we buy from Matt and Cyndee over at Matt-Cyn farms into the crock pot in the morning before work. When I come home they are ready to be re-fried — and they smell wonderful! Saute some onion, garlic, cumin, salt, pepper, mash the beans and wham! — You’ve got yourself re-fried beans!
All that said, you can just used canned re-fried beans — but why would you? Here’s what I did:
Beef and Bean Burrito – Makes 6 Large Burritos
- 1 pound of lean pasture-raised ground beef
- 1 onion, diced
- 5 cloves of garlic, diced
- 2 cups dried beans, cooked, re-fried or 32-ounces of canned re-fried beans
- 1 tomato, diced or small can of salsa (depending on if tomatoes are in season or not!)
- 1 avocado, diced
- 1/2 cup grated cheese
- 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
- sour cream
- 2 tablespoons cumin
- 1/4 teaspoon chili powder (or to taste)
- kosher salt
- fresh ground pepper
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 6 large burrito tortillas
- Heat the olive oil in a heavy bottom pan
- Add the onions, saute until translucent
- Add the garlic, saute for another minute
- Add the ground beef and cook until brown
- Add the cumin, chili powder, salt and pepper and mix — add more to taste
- Heat or cook your beans
- Warm a tortilla shell in a cast iron pan for a few seconds or in the oven on warm for a few minutes
- Add the beans, meat, cheese, salsa/tomato, avocado, cilantro and sour cream
- Top it off with some of your favorite hot sauce and roll it up!
I hope you enjoy it!
