Saute 1 diced onion over medium heat, and then stir in 2 pounds of ground beef once the onion softens. Once the meat browns, add 1/2 teaspoon of ground cumin, 1/4 teaspoon of chili powder, 1/4 teaspoon of oregano and 1/4 teaspoon of salt, and stir in 2 7-ounce cans of Mexican tomato sauce or enchilada sauce. In a separate pan, melt 3/4 cup of grated cheddar cheese with a 28-ounce can of refried beans. Spoon the meat mixture and bean mixture into 12 large flour tortillas, and place the burritos in a baking dish. Pour a 7-ounce can of enchilada sauce and more grated cheddar cheese over the burritos before serving, and garnish them 1/2 cup of fresh cilantro leaves.

Another recipe calls for 1 minced garlic clove added to the onion and meat mixture. Instead of adding cheese to the can of refried beans, mix them with 1/2 cup of enchilada sauce. Serve the burritos on a bed of shredded lettuce, and garnish them chopped tomatoes, sliced olives, sour cream or guacamole.
