Beef and Bean Burritos

Sorry, long time no post. Haven't been making much from recipes. Doing simple grilled fare and some meatloaves. Couldn't tell you exactly what I put in them. But they're good. The main thing is that I use bbq sauce instead of ketchup.

So to get to the burritos. We had a leftover grilled steak and some leftover rice from chinese takeout the other night. So I took the rice, added it to a pan with a can of refried beans. Added about 1/2 cup mild salsa, some chipolte powder (just a sprinkling), salt, pepper, and about 1/2 tsp. cumin. Then I diced the steak and added it to the pan and let it heat up fully. Then I put the mixture into tortilla wrappers with some shredded cheese. Add some more cheese on top and pop them in the oven at about 375 until the cheese melts. The cumin brought out the right Mexican flavor I was going for.
