Crock Pot Beef Burritos!

A friend of mine told me that you can make an awesome burrito using a roast that is made in the crock pot using just water and taco seasoning mix. I was skeptical and didn’t try it for about a year. After being in a non-cooking funk, I decided I wanted to try making burritos.DSC00576 I dug out the crock pot and threw a roast in with water and a package of Old El Paso Taco Seasoning Mix.
DSC00578 I cooked it on low all day and about an hour before I wanted to prepare my actual burritos, I shredded the meat and let it cook in the sauce.
DSC00584 I took a burrito shell and spread refried beans down the center of the shell. DSC00589 I then prepared a package of Knorr Spanish Rice Mix and spread that over the refried beans.
DSC00590 Added the shredded beef over the rice. DSC00591 Put some shredded cheese over the whole mess!
DSC00595 And then rolled them up and place them into a 9X13 baking pan. I found that they stick together, so NOW I wrap each one in foil and then place them into the 9X13 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for about 30-45 minutes or until done!!!
DSC00597 With the extra sauce mixture in the bottom of the Crock Pot, I drizzle it over the burritos just before we eat! If I want a lot of sauce, I just double the water and add two packages of the taco mix!
