Beef and Bean Burritos

I had these last night for dinner. I only made half the recipe and ended up still freezing about 8 burritos for later! Good idea for those of you having babies.

1/4 C oil
2 onions, chopped
4 lbs. ground beef
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tbsp chili powder
2 tsp ground cumin
salt and pepper to taste
16 oz can tomato sauce
62 oz can refried beans
24 10-inch flour tortillas

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat; cook onions until tender. Add ground beef and garlic; cook until browned. Drain; add seasonings and mix well. Stir in sauce; simmer for 5 minutes. Add beans; cook and stir until well blended/ Cool slightly. Spread mixture down centers of tortillas; roll up burrito style and arrange seam-side down on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes and serve immediately, or cool and freexe on baking sheet. When frozen, wrap individually or in pairs and store in plastic zipping freezer bags. Makes 2 dozen!!!

Heat and Eat Instructions:
Thaw desired number of burritos. Reheat on a baking sheet at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes.
