My brother-in-law teased that I only knew five ground beef recipes. I proved him wrong with my inventive spicy burritos. —Kim Kenyon, Greenwood, Missouri

Ingredients

  • 1 can (10 ounces) green enchilada sauce
  • 3/4 cup salsa verde
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 4 flour tortillas (10 inches)
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°. In a small bowl, mix enchilada sauce and salsa verde.
  2. In a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink, 8-10 minutes, breaking into crumbles; drain. Stir in 1/2 cup sauce mixture.
  3. Spoon 2/3 cup beef mixture across center of each tortilla; top each with 3 tablespoons cheese. Fold bottom and sides of tortilla over filling and roll up.
  4. Place in a greased 11x7-in. baking dish. Pour remaining sauce mixture over top; sprinkle with remaining 3/4 cup cheese. Bake, uncovered, until cheese is melted, 10-15 minutes.
