If you love Taco Bell, then you’ll gonna love this copycat recipe of their famous chili cheese burrito or “chilito” from Jaxx Drinkwater Southern Cooking & BBQ on Youtube. I’m telling you, this is the best version you’ll ever have! You might think it’s a lot of spices, but trust me, you’re going to love the result. Make this today by following the video tutorial below.
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1 yellow onion (diced)
- 4 tbsp chili powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp cayenne pepper
- 2 cups water
- 2 tbsp cornstarch (+ 2 tbsp of water)
- 1 can of refried beans
- 1 can of tomato paste
- 1 & 1/2 lb mild cheddar cheese
- 10-inch flour tortillas
In a skillet over medium heat, add the ground beef followed by 1 diced onion. Break up the ground beef and cook it until browned. After the meat is browned, add 4 tbsp of chili powder, 1 tsp of cayenne pepper, and 1 tsp of salt. Stir all together to combine. Next, add 2 cups of water, stir lightly, then add the slurry (2 tbsp cornstarch + 2 tbsp of water). Give it a light stir, then add 1 can of tomato paste, and 1 can of refried beans. Mix everything well to combine. After this, add 1 & 1 lb of shredded mild cheddar cheese in batches. Simmer it on medium-low heat for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Now, it8217;s time for wrapping. Take a spoonful (or 3-4 tbsp) of the chili cheese sauce and lay it on the center of the tortilla. Pull one end to the center to cover the chili sauce, then tuck the ends of the tortilla in and roll to close it.
