Smothered Tomatillo Green Chili Burritos

Looking for a recipe for all those Tomatillos you grew this year?

I understand, just five plants in my garden produced more than I knew what to do with! Smothered Tomatillo Green Chili Burritos make the best meal for a small or large family. Using my Green Chili recipe, I love to prepare these delicious smothered tomatillo green chili burritos. I used hamburger, but you could easily substitute shredded chicken or steak for this recipe.


1 onion
1 1/2 lb hamburger
1 jalapeño
1 package tortillas
1 can pinquito beans (or pinto beans)
3 cups shredded mexican style cheese
1 pot tomatillo green chili sauce
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp chili powder
1 clove garlic
1 tbl salt
1 tsp pepper

Brown a chopped onion in a skillet over medium heat. Add hamburger and chopped jalapeño to skillet. Season with cumin, paprika and chili powder. Add beans. After the hamburger is thoroughly cooked turn down to low and add garlic, salt and pepper. After a few minutes on low turn off the stove. Grease a large glass dish with oil or butter. Fill tortillas with hamburger mixture. Roll them up in the glass dish placing them side by side. Pour the tomatillo green chili over the burritos. Cover with cheese. Cook for about 25-30 at 325 degrees. Broil at the end for a few minutes to brown the cheese and you have Smothered Tomatillo Green Chili Burritos.
