Every woman should have a recipe that is a no-fail. It can be easy or hard but always delicious.
It is the one you pull out for company. My family loves pretty much any form of rice, beans & cheese. This recipe is easily doubled for a crowd pleaser.
They freeze well for later use if you decide to make a BIG batch. Enjoy!
4 Tbsp butter
5 Tbsp-1/2 cup chili powder
1/3 cup flour
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1/4 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp oregano
2 C chicken broth
1 (8oz) tomato sauce
Melt butter in pan. In separate bowl, mix dry ingredients. In another bowl or measuring cup, mix broth & tomato sauce. Slowly add to butter & mix as you go. Stir constantly and it will be come crumbly. Very slowly, add broth mix and you will have a thick, tasty sauce. You can pour this in a slow cooker or use it right away.
10-12 wheat tortillas
2 cans refried beans
2-3 cups shredded cheese
We do the tortilla part of this in an assembly line. Lay out all the tortillas. Heat beans in microwave & then place about 2-3 T beans on tortilla. Smooth out over whole tortilla & sprinkle with cheese. Roll tortilla up & place in a 9x13 baker. Repeat for each tortilla & then top with sauce, more cheese & sliced olives if desired.
Serve with shredded lettuce, sour cream & brown rice.
