Preparation Process

Step 1: Prepare the Sloppy Joe Filling:

  3. Stir in the tomato sauce, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, mustard, salt, and pepper. Mix well.
  4. Simmer the mixture on low heat for 10-15 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together.

Step 2: Assemble the Burritos:

  1. Lay each tortilla flat and spread a spoonful of sour cream in the center.
  2. Add a layer of cooked rice, followed by a layer of black beans.
  3. Spoon a generous portion of the sloppy joe mixture onto the beans.
  4. Sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese over the top.
  5. Fold in the sides of the tortilla and roll it up to form a burrito.
  6. Place the burritos seam-side down on a baking sheet and bake at 350°F for 10 minutes or until the tortillas are crispy.

Cooking Tips and Variations

– For a healthier version, use ground turkey instead of ground beef.

– Add some heat by mixing in diced jalapeños or hot sauce to the sloppy joe filling.

– Swap the flour tortillas for whole wheat or gluten-free tortillas to accommodate dietary preferences.

– For a vegetarian option, replace the ground beef with a meatless ground beef substitute.
