Ingredients

  • 2 pounds flank steak or similar beef, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 2 10-ounce cans mild or medium red enchilada sauce
  • 2 tablespoons adobo sauce (from a can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, found near the canned jalapeños)
  • 1 anaheim pepper, diced
  • 1 15-ounce can diced green chiles
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 tablespoon cold water
  • 2 tablespoons corn starch
  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 4 burrito-sized flour tortillas
  • 1 cup shredded Mexican-style cheese

Instructions

  • Saute beef in a large sauce pan over medium heat until tender.
  • Add enchilada sauce and next 8 ingredients (through cumin) to the pan. Whisk together water and corn starch in a small bowl, add to pan and stir. Reduce heat to a simmer, cover and cook for another 15 minutes.
  • Add black beans and a generous amount of beef mixture to the middle of each tortilla. Wrap up tightly and place seam-side-down in a greased baking dish. Top with additional sauce from the beef mixture and sprinkle shredded cheese on top. Bake at 400 for 10 minutes until cheese is bubbly, then serve.
