1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
1/2 cup diced onion
1 package (1 oz) Old El Paso™ original taco seasoning mix
1/2 cup water
1 package (11 oz) Old El Paso™ flour tortillas for burritos (8 inch)
1 cup Old El Paso™ refried beans (from 16-oz can)
1 1/2 cups cooked rice
2 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend (8 oz)
1 can (10 oz) Old El Paso™ enchilada sauce
Chopped fresh cilantro leaves, if desired
Lime wedges, if desired


  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. In 12-inch ovenproof skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add beef and onion; cook 6 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until brown. Drain, and return mixture to skillet. Stir in taco seasoning mix and water. Cook over medium heat 2 to 3 minutes longer or until thickened. Transfer to medium bowl. Clean out skillet; spray with cooking spray.
  • 2 Place tortillas on work surface. Divide refried beans, rice and beef mixture among centers of tortillas in 4-inch long strip. Evenly top with 1 cup of the cheese. Roll up into burritos, and place seam side down in skillet. Bake 25 minutes.
  • 3 Drizzle with enchilada sauce; sprinkle with remaining 1 cup cheese. Bake 8 to 10 minutes longer or until cheese is melted and burritos are heated through (165°F). Serve with cilantro and lime wedges.

Expert Tips

  • To roll burritos, fold one edge of tortilla over length of filling, tucking filling in slightly. Then fold two short edges over. Roll filled tortilla over toward remaining unfolded edge.
  • For a fun twist, swap 1 can (15 oz) Progresso™ black beans, drained and rinsed, for the refried beans.
