  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • ¾ pound SAMPCO Extra Lean Shredded Beef
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ½ cup salsa or pico de gallo
  • 4 large flour tortillas

  • ¼ cup cilantro leaves
  • 1 medium tomato, ribs & seeds removed, diced

  3. Stir in shredded beef and garlic powder; allow to heat, undisturbed for 5 minutes. Stir in salsa; remove from heat after 1 minute.
  4. To assemble: spread ¼ of warm refried beans onto surface of each tortilla; top with one-fourth amounts of cheese, seasoned beef, lettuce, cilantro, tomato and chili sour cream onto the center area, leaving 2 to 3 inches of space on each side to allow for folding.
  5. Fold sides in and roll upwards to form burrito (use a bit of refried beans on top edge of tortilla to create a seal.)
