1/4 c. butter
1/4 c. flour
4 c. water
3 Tbsp. chili powder
1 tsp. garlic salt
1 lb. ground beef
1 lb. ground sausage (I used a bacon flavored kind once and it was fabulous)
1/4 c. chopped onion
1 c. refried beans
8 flour tortillas (8 inch), warmed
3 c. shredded cheese (monteray jack or cheddar works great)
Optional toppings: shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, sliced olives, sour cream
In a large saucepan, melt butter. I normally would use Promise Light for my butter but I didn’t have enough!
Stir in flour until smooth.
Gradually add water. Bring to a boil; cook and stir one minute or until thickened.
Stir in chili powder and garlic salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer uncovered for 10 minutes.
In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the beef, sausage, and onion until meat is no longer pink; drain.
Stir in beans; heat through.
Spread 1/4 c. sauce in a greased 9×13 baking dish. Spread 1 Tbsp. sauce in the center of a tortilla and spread around. Place 2/3 c. (use measuring cup for this and it comes out perfect) meat mixture down the center of each tortilla. Top with 1/4 c. shredded cheese. (I didn’t top with cheese because I was trying to keep it healthier and knowing their would be cheese on top was hopefully going to be enough!
Roll up and place seam side down in the baking dish. Pour remaining sauce over top.
Sprinkle with remaining cheese. (I even put a little more of the sauce over the cheese)
Bake uncovered at 350 for 18 minutes or until bubbly and cheese is melted. (I did 15 and 3 on broil to brown the top!)
Serve with optional toppings, if desired. (I chose light sour cream!)
Check out our Cajun Rice to serve with it!! SOOOOOOO GOOD!!!
