“Taste of Home” recipe submitted by Marina Castle, Canyon Country, CA. 8 Servings Prep: 40 min. Bake: 15 min.

  1. Preheat oven to 400°. In a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat 8-10 minutes or until no longer pink, breaking into crumbles; drain. Stir in taco sauce, Worcestershire sauce, onion powder, paprika, garlic powder, ¼ teaspoon salt and pepper. Add lemon juice and, if desired, olives.
  2. In an electric skillet, heat 1 in. of oil to 375°. Working in batches, fry potatoes 3-4 minutes or until golden brown, stirring occasionally. Remove with a slotted spoon; drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with remaining salt.
  3. Stir potatoes into meat mixture. Place ⅔ cup mixture near the center of each tortilla; top with ½ cup cheese. Fold bottom and sides of tortilla over filling and roll up.
  4. Wrap each burrito in foil; place on a baking sheet. Bake 15-18 minutes or until heated through.

Freeze option: Cool filling before making burritos. After wrapping burritos in foil, freeze in a resealable plastic freezer bag. To use, partially thaw overnight in refrigerator. Reheat foil-wrapped burritos on a baking sheet in a preheated 350° oven 25-30 minutes or until heated through. Or, to reheat one burrito, remove foil and rewrap burrito in paper towel; place on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave on high for 3-4 minutes or until heated through, turning once. Let stand 20 seconds.
