Gilda's Smothered Burritos


Rosie on the House Gildas Smothered Burritos2 1/2 cups Beans prepared with salt pork

1 lb Hamburger

1/2 tsp Garlic Powder

1 cup Salsa


Salt & Pepper (to taste)

10.5 oz Prepared Red Enchilada Sauce (Old El Paso preferred)

1 Tbsp Chili Powder

1/2 tsp Garlic Powder

1/2 tsp Pepper

3 tsp onion powder

1 1/2 tsp salt

1 cup water

1 1/2 Tbsp Flour


Beef and Bean Filling: Cook your beans with salt pork (1/3 lb). Depending upon method allow 2 to 4 hours. Do not drain beans; you will need bean broth for later.

Fry hamburger over medium high heat adding seasoning and salt and pepper to taste. Drain off the fat, leaving a little for flavor. To this, add the salsa and simmer for about 15 minutes. While the beef simmers with salsa, prepare your bean sauce.

Bean Sauce: In a blender puree about 1 cup of the prepared beans with 1/3 cup of the bean broth and 3 T. of Red Chili Sauce. Blend until smooth and creamy with an easy to pour consistency. This makes about 2 cups of sauce to pour over the burrito once filled with your burrito goodies.

Add the remaining beans to your beef and salsa mixture that's on low-simmer on the burner. Simmer the mixture mashing slightly, for another 15 minutes. If a little dry, add more salsa or bean broth to your liking. Turn to low and keep warm.

Red Chili Sauce: Add all seasoning to enchilada sauce and bring to a boil.

Roll warmed tortillas with beef filling and pour bean sauce and red chili sauce over the top. Top with your favorite toppings such as cheese, diced tomatoes and onions.
