Nikki's Bean and Beef Burritos

I combined several recipes to create this new bean and beef burrito recipe. It is by far the most flavorful one I have made. The family loved it.

1 # ground chuck
4 1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp seasoned salt
1/2 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1/4 tsp sugar
1 tsp dried minced onion
1/4 tsp ground red pepper
1# ground chuck
3/4 c water
16 oz can refried beans
6-8 large flour tortillas
2 c shredded cheddar cheese
16 oz sour cream

In a medium bowl, combine all spices together. Crumble the ground chuck into a large skillet over medium heat. Cook, stirring, until browned. Drain grease from beef. Return meat to skillet, and pour in seasoning. Stir in water. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until uncovered for 10-15 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Stir in 1 cup of sour cream and refried beans. Top each tortilla with the meat mixture; sprinkle with cheese. Roll burritos. Place seam side down in a greased 9x13 dish. Once the dish is filled with 6-8 burritos, pour remaining meat mixture all over the top. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake until cheese is melted. Serve with sour cream.

Freezer Directions
Make burritos as directed placing in a foil pan instead. Cover with heavy duty foil.  Freeze. Thaw and bake for 30 to 45 minutes since all the ingredients are cold as it goes into the oven.
