- 1 - 28 oz. can RO*TEL - drained
- 1 - 15 oz. can MANWICH
- 1 - 15.5 oz. can re-fried beans
- 1 - 14.5 oz. can Hunt's Petite Diced Tomatoes
- 1 lb. ground beef
- 1 - 6 oz. container Sour Cream
- 1 tsp. cumin
- good big pinch cayenne pepper
- salt and black pepper to taste
- tortillas (for Burritos)
- 1 - 16 oz. bag Mexican cheese (Monterey Jack, Cheddar, Queso & Asadero)
- 1 avocado
- splash of lime juice (for the crema)
- 1 jalapeno pepper - small dice, stem and seeds and white vein removed
- Pam Cooking Spray
- 9 x 11 baking dish
Place the ground beef in a large skillet over medium high heat. Break it down with a wooden spoon as you go. To the ground beef add some salt and black pepper to taste, the cumin, chili powder and cayenne pepper. Stir. To this add in the can of MANWICH and stir.
Add this mixture to a bowl and then add in the can of drained RO*TEL and the Jalapeno pepper. Mix well. Just some input here - I have food handling gloves and did I use them when dicing the jalapeno? No. I paid for it a bit later by rubbing my eyelid before washing my hands. It stings and for some time, so please wash your hands super well after handling any hot pepper.
Start with using 3/4 of the can of re-fried beans and spread over the bottom as evenly as you can. Then on top of that add about 1/2 cup of the Mexican blend cheese. Top that with the MANWICH and RO*TEL mixture (using about half of the mixture and save the other half for the burritos).
Then top the whole thing with cheese.
Now here is the bonus recipe ~ Burritos for the kids. The great thing is both the dip and burritos bake for the same length of time!
Lay out a 10 " tortilla and spoon on a little bit of the re-fried beans and spread it around a bit, add a little cheese over that, followed by the MANWICH & RO*TEL mixture and more cheese. Roll up burrito style, place in a casserole dish and bake in a 375° oven for about 25 minutes until warm and the cheese has a chance to melt. I made four smaller burritos for my husband and I, there's plenty of mix to make a good sized batch of them.
Topping for the Burritos ~ AVOCADO CREMA
Take the avocado and add it to a blender with a 6 oz. container of sour cream and spritz of lime or lemon juice, a touch of salt and pepper and about a tablespoon or so of water if you need to get it going in the blender. Blend until smooth.
