Easy Chimi's

I came upon this recipe, changed it a lot ( so now it is mine), and it turned out so yummy! It is such an easy thing to throw together and also freezes really well for left overs!

1 pound ground beef
3/4 cup chopped onions
1 can green chilies (or 3/4 c green bell peppers)
1 can of corn
1 can tomato sauce
1 can refried beans (or black beans)
1 cup of salsa
1 TBS chili powder
pinch of salt

Flour Tortillas
Shredded Cheese

Preheat oven to 350*. Brown ground beef and onions together. Add in everything but the cheese. Place the mixture onto the tortilla, add cheese to hearts desire, roll up into burrito, and then place on baking sheet. Coat with thin spray of Pam or with butter. Place in oven and bake for 30 minutes. Serve with sour cream, guacamole, salsa, or anything else that is yummy to you.

Don't forget to freeze the extras before you cook them. Yields about 10 burritos.

We made these the other day. My kids absolutely loved them. My husband said "yeah, they weren't bad" But he ate 2 of them. (something he never does)So, I think he liked them more than he cared to disclose. Thanks for the recipe Lyssy

Thank you for sharing this recipe!!! I've been waiting for this one. Also if you don't want to heat them up in the pan when they come out of the freezer the microwave works just fine and it is more like a burito and not like a chimi.
