  • 6 ounces sliced jalapeno peppers

  • 1 tomato, diced

  • 1 (4 ounce) can chopped green chile peppers

  • 1 green bell pepper, diced

  • 1 red bell pepper, diced

  • 1 onion, diced

  • 1 ½ tablespoons hot sauce

  • ¼ teaspoon ground cayenne pepper

  • 1 pound ground beef

  • 1 (1 ounce) package burrito seasoning

  • 1 (14 ounce) can refried beans

  • 6 (10 inch) flour tortillas

  • 1 (10 ounce) bag shredded lettuce

  • 1 (8 ounce) container sour cream

  • 1 (8 ounce) package shredded sharp Cheddar cheese


  1. Mix jalapeno peppers, tomato, green chile peppers, green bell pepper, red bell pepper, onion, hot sauce, and cayenne pepper together in a large bowl.

  2. Cook beef in a large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring to break up clumps, about 5 minutes. Drain excess grease. Add jalapeno pepper mixture and burrito seasoning; cook, covered, stirring occasionally, until flavors combine, about 10 minutes.

  3. Pour refried beans into a saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook and stir until heated through, about 5 minutes.

  4. Warm each tortilla in the microwave until soft, 15 to 20 seconds. Spread a layer of refried beans on top. Divide beef mixture among tortillas. Top with lettuce, sour cream, and Cheddar cheese. Fold in opposing edges of each tortilla and roll up into a burrito.
