Spicy Beef and Bean Burritos

The smoky flavor of chipotle, chiles, peppers, and plenty of spices takes this traditional Tex-Mex dish from ordinary to superb. Serve it with grated pepper jack cheese, salsa, guacamole, or try our delicious recipes for Green Chile Sauce or Poblano Chile Sauce.


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon chile powder
  • 2 tablespoons ground cumin
  • 3 cans (15 ounces each) pinto or black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 3/4 ounce Glace de Viande Gold® dissolved in 2 cups hot water
  • 1 can (4 ounces) roasted chopped green chiles
  • 1 commercially prepared roasted red pepper, chopped
  • 1/2-1 chipotle pepper, minced
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • Salt and ground black pepper
  • Warm flour tortillas, for serving


  1. Warm a large, heavy skillet over medium heat.  Add the ground beef and the onion, and cook, stirring to break up the beef, until the beef is browned and the onion is tender, 5-6 minutes.  Add the garlic, chile powder, and cumin and cook for another minute.
  2. Stir in the beans, diluted Glace de Viande Gold®, green chiles, red pepper, and chipotle and simmer, crushing the beans with a wooden spoon or a potato masher, until the mixture has thickened, about 15 minutes.
  3. Stir in the cilantro and season to taste with  salt and pepper.  Transfer the beef and beans to a serving dish and serve with warm tortillas and your choice of sauces and accompaniments.

Additional Tips

Wine Pairing: Zinfandel or Malbec.  Beer is also an excellent choice with Tex-Mex food.  Try a lager or a double bock style beer, or even a porter, with this dish.
