Beef and Bean Burritos

I recently wandered over to the Pioneer Woman and found a couple of great "Sixteen Minute" recipes. During the summer months I don't particularly enjoy cooking indoors, but I hate to ask Mario to grill something every single night! I whipped this up (in a bit more than 16 minutes) and we both really enjoyed it--even though Mario's first choice isn't Mexican food! I cut the recipe in half since I wasn't feeding 2 growing boys and it was perfect for the two of us plus a lunch for me the next day! :)

Beef and Bean Burritos (that should take 16 minutes)
Yields: 4 servings
Source: ThePioneerWoman

1 pound ground beef
1/2 yellow onion
1 small can Mexican Tomato Sauce (I think it's like 4.5 oz and the can is yellow)
salt and pepper to taste
oregano and garlic powder to taste
1 can (14.5 oz) refried beans
grated Mexican cheese
a package of burrito flour tortillas (whatever size you'd like)
your favorite toppings: cilantro, sour cream, tomatoes, salsa, guacamole, black olives, onions, green chiles, etc.

Brown the beef and onion in a skillet; season with salt and pepper. Pour in the sauce, sprinkle in the garlic powder and oregano and simmer over medium-low heat. Heat refried beans in a saucepan and add cheese and still until its melted; keep on low heat. Heat the tortillas in the microwave for 30 seconds to 1 minute (do 2 at a time). Fill each tortilla with some beans and beef; fold the ends then roll it on up. Place the filled burritos on a plate, top with some cheese, and microwave for 1 minute or until the cheese is melted. Top with whatever you'd like! Serve with some Mexican rice!
