Wet Burrito

My dear friend Mandi said "I need a Wet Burrito" recipe... I am like ok... all wet burritos are is burritos smothered in a yummy sauce and baked...YUM... They are super easy and delicious.. a real crowd and family pleaser..which is a good thing in my book :)  I have made these with both chicken and ground beef.  Both are delicious and I will be putting the recipe for both versions on here... the only difference is the meat.  The technique is the same. For the seasonings these are just always use what you like, and you can make these as spicy as you want..adjust for more heat. I serve these with cooked rice (rice cooked in beef or chicken stock). Enjoy

Wet Burrito

1 lb ground beef or 1 pound of boneless skinless chicken breast or tenders
1 onion, finely diced
2 cans enchilada sauce
1 small can tomato sauce
1 t sugar
3 dashes hot sauce
1 t worchester sauce
seasonings of your choice: (I use cumin, chili powder,paprika seasoned salt & pepper and a pinch each of red pepper flakes & cayenne pepper)

Package of tortillas
combination of mozzerella & colby jack shredded cheese (around 2-3 cups -saving 1/2 cup for the top)

In saute pan add ground beef ( if using chicken, dice chicken in small pieces & add 1 t olive oil, then the chicken) and onion.  Cook until meat is thoroughly cooked.  Drain off any fat.  While meat is cooking add remaining ingredients (EXCEPT: tortillas & cheese) and stir together heating until warmed.  Preheat oven to 375.  Add a couple of spoonfuls of the sauce mixture in the bottom of a baking dish.  Add a couple of spoonfuls to the meat mixture and stir to coat meat well.  On  plate place tortilla.  Spoon a spoonful of meat mixture to the side & sprinkle with a little cheese. Roll up the tortilla into a roll and place seam side down in the baking dish, continuing until all of the meat is done.  Spoon the remaining sauce over the top.  Place in oven and bake for around 20 minutes or until bubbly.  Sprinkle cheese over the top & place back into the oven for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.  Serve & enjoy
