Hamburger Mix Burritos

Here’s one or our favorite ways to serve home-canned or frozen hamburger mix…beef and bean burritos.  I keep tortillas in the freezer all the time, as well as cheese, and always have some home-canned or purchased beans and salsa in the pantry, so we can make this whenever I just don’t really want to cook.  My husband thinks this is “fast-food”…and they are much better than those purchased burritos. 
Another way to use that hamburger mix I try to always have on hand.   Hamburger Mix recipe HERE                  

 Hamburger Mix Burritos
   1 jar      Hamburger Mix -half Pint
  1            Pint  Refried Beans -- or mashed pinto or red beans
     ½        Cup  Salsa
  4            Ounces  Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  8            Tortillas, 7" Flour
                Salsa -- optional, for topping
                Sour Cream -- optional, for topping
Combine hamburger mix and mashed or refried beans in a quart covered measuring cup or bowl.  Microwave one minute.
Divide among the flour tortillas.  Top with a spoonful of salsa, as desired.  Sprinkle lightly with some of the cheese.
Roll up, place on microwave-safe serving plate or platter.  Sprinkle with more cheese. 
Microwave 1 minute for two burritos.  (Or place on a baking sheet. Bake in a 350° oven about 10 minutes or until heated through.). 
If desired, serve with additional salsa and sour cream.
Serve with a crisp tossed salad and fruit for dessert.
