Easy Ground Beef Wet Burrito for One Recipe

This is what I whipped up for dinner last night, for just me. Had I been thinking, however, I would have made extra. Then I would have had leftovers. These things reheat really well and taste awesome the next day.

Measurements are approximate, I just winged this one.

about 1/2 lb ground beef
spice blend: chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder and Mexican oregano, and salt and ground black pepper to taste
about 1/4-1/3 cup water
about 1/2 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese, divided
handful shredded lettuce
1 extra large burrito size flour tortilla, lightly warmed
1/2 small can enchilada sauce

Preheat oven to 350°.

In a large frying pan over medium heat, brown ground beef; drain well. Return to pan and add spices. Stir in water, and simmer for 10 minutes or so, or til liquid is cooked off. Remove beef mixture from heat to cool slightly.

Mix beef mixture with half of cheese and lettuce. Lay warmed tortilla out on a flat surface and add beef mixture. Fold sides of burrito in, then roll up. Place burrito seam side down in a small baking pan or dish. Drizzle with enchilada sauce, making sure entire tortilla is covered. Sprinkle top with remaining cheese.

Bake 20 minutes til cheese is melted and sauce is bubbling and hot.http://media-files.gather.com/images/d484/d270/d746/d224/d96/f3/full.jpg

I served the burrito with my new Laughing Bull hot sauce from Marlboro. It added nice medium heat, but not much flavor.http://media-files.gather.com/images/d485/d270/d746/d224/d96/f3/full.jpg
