|it's not the prettiest, but it is the tastiest|
The filling is made with a mixture of ground beef and refried beans, but I have successfully made it with ground turkey as well.
1 lb ground beef (the leaner the better)
1 onion chopped
2 cloves garlic minced
1 16oz can refried beans (I use the fat free variety)
1 Tbsp chili powder
1 Tbsp ground cumin
pinch (or to taste) red pepper flakes
1 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes
1 4.25 oz can diced green chilies
tortillas and toppings as desired
In a large skillet, brown the ground beef over medium high heat. Drain fat, leaving about 1 Tbsp for cooking. Add in the onion, garlic, and spices and cook until the onion is translucent. Add in the tomatoes, green chilies, and refried beans. Stir until the beans have sort of melted to create a sauce for the meat.
