Servings: 6 Prep 15 mins Bake 375°F 10 mins Cook 7 mins

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3/4 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 15 ounce can red kidney beans, drained, rinsed and lightly mashed
  • 3 cups garlic cilantro salsa, such as Muir Glen
  • 12 fajita-size flour tortillas
  • 2 ounces Monterey Jack cheese, shredded (1/2 cup)
  • 2 ounces Colby cheese, shredded (1/2 cup)

Make It

1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a 15 x 10 x 1-inch baking sheet.

2. Heat oil in large nonstick skillet. Add ground beef and cook over medium heat for 5 minutes, breaking up with a wooden spoon. Season with salt, oregano and cumin.

3. Add beans and 1-1/2 cups of the salsa and heat through, about 2 minutes.

4. Microwave tortillas for 1 minute to soften. Spoon 1/4 cup of filling onto center of each tortilla. Fold up tortilla as if wrapping a package. Place seam-side down on prepared baking sheet.

5. Spoon remaining salsa over burritos. Sprinkle cheese on top. Bake at 375 degrees F for 10 minutes, or until heated through and cheese is melted.
