Beef and Bean Chimichangas

I love mexican food. This recipe is AWESOME, one because it taste good, the other...these are BAKED chimichangas not fried!!! yay!!! This recipe also calls for ground beef, but I actually use ground turkey...

1 pound ground beef
3/4 cup chopped onion
3/4 cup diced green bell pepper
1 1/2 cups corn
2 cups taco sauce
2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp garlic salt
1 tsp ground cumin
1 can refried beans
8 (12") flour tortillas
shredded chese
1 tbsp melted butter
shredded lettuce
diced tomatoes

Preheat oven to 350. brown meat, drain greese and add onion, pepper, and corn. cook 5 more minutes (until veggies are tender) Stir in taco sauce and season with chili powder, garlic salt and cumin. Stir until blended and cook until heated through.
open can of beans...spread thin layer of beans down middle of each tortilla (I warm up the tortillas before doing this) and spoon beef mixture down center...top with cheese. Roll up and place seam side down onto baking sheet. Brush tortillas w/melted butter
bake for 30-35 minutes until gold brown...

Serve with lettuce, tomatoes....we also do guacamole and sour cream! with a side of spanish rice and beans....YUMMY!!!

I just cooked these tonight and they were awesome a big hit here! I did not have enough taco sauce, but used a small can of tomato sauce and it worked great. I am used to subing things here in the country! Thanks for the awesome recipe!
