Chili Smothered Burritos {Using El Monterey frozen burritos}

8:35 PM
Chili Smothered Burritos, frozen burritos coverd with sliced cheese and chili gravy then topped with shreaded cheese.  To make them a little spicy add jalapeno slices.  

When my children were school age, Chili Smothered Burritos were on our monthly menu rotation a couple of times.  

We would have them on a weeknight that was going to be a busy one. We would have them before a Friday night football or a Wednesday night prayer.  I always serve them with Mexican Salad and Spanish Rice.  That was what you might call a ritual.  We couldn't have one without the other.  

I remember when my son was going to Baylor, and he would call home, and before I could get off the phone, he would ask what were we having for supper.   I would say Chili Smothered Burritos….and he would say…with Mexican Salad and Spanish Rice?  He knew the answer.   

He is still requesting this menu when he brings his family home for a visit. Recently, I have added Sopapilla Cheesecake for our dessert.  Keeping the Mexican theme going!  

These are not only easy to make they are SUPER easy to make.  You want fast? You got fast.  They take less than ten minutes to bring them together and then you pop them in the oven for them to do their easy deliciousness.  Yum!  I am drooling just writing this post.  

This is a wonderful recipe that will keep you out of fast food restaurants and your family sitting at the dinner table. 

Don't forget to buy your frozen burritos and have them available when you are ready to make this recipe. 

Hope you get to make some soon.  Enjoy!

Chili Smothered Burritos
    1 pkg. (8) beans and chili Monterrey frozen burritos
    4 slices American cheese
    4 teaspoons dried onion flakes (or 4 tablespoons grated fresh onion)
    1 15 oz. canned or homemade chili (I prefer Wolf Band Chili with no beans if using canned)
    1/2 cups sliced jalapenos (I used pickled)
    2 cups of cheddar cheese, divided

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.   In an oblong baking dish, arrange burritos in a single layer.  Lay one slice of cheese on top of 2 burritos together.

Sprinkle 1 teaspoon onion flakes over top of each slice of cheese.  Spoon chili over onions.  Spread around until evenly covering cheese and onions.

Sprinkle evenly with 1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese.   Distribute jalapenos over cheddar cheese.

Bake 40-45 minutes or until burritos are hot inside.  Sprinkle remaining cheese over the hot burritos.
