Smothered Burritos

This recipe was a huge hit at my house and has already been requested again! They were so flavorful and the homemade chili gravy was so good! This recipe is adapted from House of Yumm.

2 lbs ground beef
8oz can tomato sauce
1 tbsp chili powder
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder

Chili Gravy
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tsp salt
1 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp cumin
2 tbsp chili powder
2 cups beef broth

8 burrito size tortillas
4 cups monterey jack cheese
16 oz can refried beans

Heat oven to 350.  In a large skillet cook the ground beef over medium heat and drain off the grease. Turn the heat to low and stir in the tomato sauce, chili powder, salt, cumin, garlic powder and onion powder. Bring to a simmer then remove from heat and set to the side.  Melt the butter in a sauce pan over medium heat. Whisk in the flour and let cook for 3 minutes. Stir in the black pepper, salt, garlic powder, cumin and chili powder. Slowly pour in the beef broth and bring to a simmer and allow the sauce to thicken. Once it has thickened to a sauce consistency remove from heat. To assemble the burritos first place a spoonful of refried beans on a tortilla and spread down the middle. Top with 1/4 cup of ground beef then top with cheese. Roll up then place the seem side down in a 9x13 baking dish. Once all of the burritos are made, top with the chili gravy and 2 cups of cheese. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and top with lettuce, tomato, sour cream and guacamole.
