As we move on to traditional Mexican food, this is one of the secret recipes that Mexican families vouch for:
(Burritos baked like enchiladas with sauce and cheese)
3 – 8 oz. cans tomato sauce
1 10-1/2 oz. can tomato soup
1 – 16 oz. can tomatoes, chopped
1-1/2 cups water
2 – 1 tsp. chili powder, to taste
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. oil
2 lbs. ground round
2 – 4 oz. cans sliced mushrooms, drained
1 cup finely chopped onion
3 cups grated cojack cheese
12 flour tortillas
For sauce, blend together all ingredients in a 2-quart saucepan over medium heat; stir and bring to a boil. Reduce to simmer, cover and continue 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat.
For filling, heat oil in large frying pan; add ground round, onions, and mushrooms. Brown together. Add 1-1/2 cups of sauce to meat, stir and simmer 10 minutes. Remove from heat. Grease two 9×13 inch pans.
Spread 1/2 cup meat mixture on bottom of each tortilla and sprinkle with about 2 tbsp. grated cheese. Roll up and place seam down in prepared pans. Place 6 in each pan with at least 1/2 inch between each burro-lada.
Divide the remainder of sauce and pour each half evenly over each pan; cover and bake in a preheated 375-degree oven for 20 minutes.
Remove cover and sprinkle remaining cheese evenly over each pan.
Continue to bake uncovered 10 minutes or until bubbly. Let stand at least 5 minutes before serving. Makes 12 generous servings.
Approximate preparation time for your Burro-Ladas: 1-1/2 to 2 hours.
