Preparation Time:
– Preparation: 30 minutes
– Cooking: 1 hour
– Total: 1 hour and 30 minutes

– 1 pound ground beef
– 1 onion, chopped
– 2 cloves garlic, minced
– 1 can (16 ounces) refried beans
– 1 can (4 ounces) diced green chilies
– 1 teaspoon chili powder
– 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
– Salt and pepper to taste
– 8 large flour tortillas
– 2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese, divided
– 1 can (10 ounces) enchilada sauce
– 1/2 cup sour cream
– Chopped fresh cilantro for garnish (optional)

– In a large skillet, cook the ground beef, onion, and garlic over medium heat until the beef is browned and the onion is translucent. Drain any excess grease.
– Stir in the refried beans, diced green chilies, chili powder, cumin, salt, and pepper. Cook for an additional 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the mixture is well combined and heated through.
– Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
– Warm the tortillas in the oven for a few minutes to make them more pliable. This will make them easier to roll.
– Spoon about 1/2 cup of the beef and bean mixture onto each tortilla. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of shredded Monterey Jack cheese on top of the filling. Roll up the tortillas, tucking in the ends, to create burritos.
– Place the burritos seam-side down in a greased baking dish.
– Pour the enchilada sauce over the burritos, making sure to coat them evenly. Sprinkle the remaining shredded cheese on top.
– Cover the baking dish with foil and bake for 25 minutes. Then, remove the foil and bake for an additional 10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
– Serve the wet burritos hot, topped with a dollop of sour cream and garnished with chopped cilantro, if desired.

These Amazing Wet Burritos are a fantastic choice for a satisfying and flavorful dinner. The combination of the tender beef, savory beans, and melted cheese, all smothered in a rich enchilada sauce, will leave you craving for more. Enjoy this delicious Mexican dish with your favorite side dishes or a fresh salad. Bon appétit!
