Every time I make these for company, everyone wants the recipe. These are one of the few dinners that everyone in my family absolutely loves. They make great leftovers for lunch, too - just heat ‘em in the microwave for about 2 minutes. Mmmm…

Cooking time:

Serves: 6


Pack of a dozen flour tortillas
Large can whole green chiles
1 pound monterey jack cheese, cut in 1/4″ thick slices
Large can tomato sauce
1 pound hamburger


In a large frying pan, brown hamburger; drain. Add tomato sauce and simmer. Add about a tablespoon of crushed red pepper and 1 tsp. chili powder. While that’s simmering, heat oven to 400 degrees. Grease a 9×13 inch pan. In each tortilla, roll up a slice of cheese and a chile. Line burritos up in baking pan. Add juice from can of chiles to sauce. Pour sauce over burritos and bake for 25 minutes or until cheese is melted. Serve with refried beans.
