Full Answer

To make an easy Mexican burrito, chop up an onion. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add 1/4 cup of the onion and 1 pound of ground beef. Cook the meat until it is no longer pink, then drain off the grease. Add 1 can of chili with beans to the meat. Stir in 1 1/4 cups of chunky salsa and 1/4 cup of canned, chopped green chilies. Bring everything to a boil, then reduce the heat. Simmer the meat mixture for five minutes until warmed through.

Meanwhile, warm flour tortillas on a skillet, and lay them out. Place a few spoonfuls of the meat mixture in each tortilla. Sprinkle with shredded cheese or place sliced cheese over the meat. Either add shredded lettuce and taco sauce to the burrito before rolling it up, or serve the lettuce and taco sauce on the side. Another option is to warm the burritos in a baking dish in the oven at 180 degrees Fahrenheit, and serve them with grated cheddar and cilantro leaves.
