Green Chili Burritos

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

A few days ago I made a small roast in the crockpot. It was good for a roast that was cooked with almost no preparation. Frozen meat in the crockpot, dry seasoning over the top, add a lid and cook. That evening we had pot roast and potatoes for dinner. A couple of nights later, we had a re-run of the roast and potatoes dinner. That left about 2 cups of mostly beef and gravy. A perfect opportunity to try out my idea of an Encore meal. I had noticed this delicious looking plate of food at Sheila's blog, and I knew I wanted to try a baked burrito that was not tomato-based.

Green Chili Burritos, leftover pot roast made into delicious burritos.

Roast Beef and Green Chili Burritos
by the seat of my pants!
350-degree oven

2 cup roast beef and gravy - more beef than gravy
1 can black beans, drained
1 c green chili salsa, purchased or homemade your choice
6-8 tortillas - depending upon the size
1 c grated cheddar

Warm the beef and gravy, gently separating the beef into shredded meat.

Add the beans and 1/2 c of the salsa. Stir gently to combine.

Fill your tortillas, leaving about 3/4 - 1 cup of the meat mixture in the pan. Add remaining salsa to the meat mixture, stir to mix. Spoon over the rolled burritos in your baking pan.

Sprinkle with the cheese, bake 30 minutes.

Serve with additional salsa, sour cream. olives etc as your family prefers. I enjoyed mine as baked with nothing more. These were delicious and I will make these again.
