Chile Colorado Burritos


1 prepared recipe Chile Colorado, meat shredded

1 prepared recipe Mexican Rice

1 prepared recipe Refried Beans

10” flour tortillas, package of 8

1 pound (16 ounces) Monterey Jack Cheese, shredded


Prepare the Chile Colorado, Mexican Rice and Refried Beans. While the recipes can be made ahead of time, each should be heated and laid out in bowls before assembling your burritos.

Place a flour tortilla down and spread ¼ cup of the hot refried beans across the center.

Add 1/3 cup of shredded jack cheese.

Add ½ cup of the shredded hot Chile Colorado.

Top with about 1/3 cup of hot Mexican rice.

Fold the side closest to you forward, then with both hands, fold the left and right in towards the center and flip forward over the exposed end, tucking any filling in with your fingers as you fold forward.

Wrap each in foil, cut in half and serve.

Depending on how full you fill your burritos, you may or may not have leftover beef, beans and rice. Feel free to serve any extras on the side, or enjoy as leftovers the next day.
Prep and cook times listed above include the time it takes to prepare the Chile Colorado, Mexican Rice and Refried Beans.
