This week for taco Tuesday I made one of my favorite Mexican dishes, wet burritos. These wet burritos are stuffed with ground beef and beans, drenched in a delicious enchilada sauce, covered with ooey-gooey melted cheese and topped with lettuce, tomatoes, onions and sour cream
Browning the meat
In a large size fry pan, I browned 2 pounds of ground beef. Seasoned it with Lawry’s seasoning(this is a staple in my kitchen) black pepper and my homemade taco seasoning.
When the ground beef is cooked all the way, drain off the extra grease you might have, I normally have a can under the sink just for this.
It’s all about the sauce
For my enchilada sauce, I mixed together 1 can of tomato sauce, 1 can diced tomatoes, 1 can mild enchilada sauce, 1 small can of green chiles. The enchilada and chilies will give this sauce a little kick, you can always use hot enchilada sauce or add a couple dashes of hot sauce if you like spicier foods. My family doesn’t like too many spicy foods.
Sometimes I prefer to use foil pans. You know like when there is cheese involved, the foil pans help with clean up. I have a stock pile in the pantry. I do put a cookie sheet under the foil pan just for support. So the burritos don’t stick to the bottom of the pan I coat the bottom of my foil pan with a thin layer of the sauce.

Time to assemble the inside, on the tortilla shell I spread 1 tablespoon of refried beans, about 1/2 cup of my prepared ground beef, and a sprinkle of taco cheese. You can always add more of each ingredient if you like. Then roll them up and place them in the foil pan.
Once I have my pan filled with the burritos I cover every inch of them with my enchilada sauce and top that with shredded taco cheese.Then I cover my foil pan with aluminum foil and place it in a preheated 350-degree oven for 45 minutes to an hour or until done.
