1½poundslean ground beef
1cupsweet yellow onion,finely diced, divided in half
⅓cupsweet pickle relish
3tablespoonsprepared yellow mustard
1cupmild cheddar cheese,freshly shredded
1teaspoonfresh cracked black pepper
8ouncesVelveeta,cubed (or a generic version)
6 to 10inchflour tortilla,burrito size
1½cupsshredded lettuce(¼ cup per burrito)
¾cupchopped Roma tomatoes(2 tablespoons per burrito)
Add the ground beef and ½ cup of diced onion to a 3 to 4 quart saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook uncovered and stir often until the ground beef is no longer pink. Drain any excess liquid.
Reduce the heat to medium-low. Add the ½ cup + 2 tablespoons of ketchup, ⅓ cup of pickle relish, and 3 tablespoons of mustard. Continue to simmer for 3 to 4 more minutes.
Remove the pan from the heat. Stir in the shredded cheddar and the black pepper. Continue stirring until the shredded cheese is well incorporated.
Add the cubed Velveeta to a medium-sized microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 45-second intervals, stirring until the cheese is completely melted and smooth.
Using a microwave safe tortilla warmer, heat the 6 tortillas for 45 seconds.
Measure out ½ cup of the ground beef mixture, and spread out in a 4 inch x 2 inch section.
Top the ground beef with 2 teaspoons of the remaining ½ cup of diced onion.
Top the diced onion with 2 tablespoons of the melted velveeta, shredded lettuce and chopped tomato.
Fold the sides of the burrito towards the center over the filling and hold the sides in place.
Fold the bottom of the burrito over the folded sides. Carefully tuck the bottom under the filling, pulling it snug. Begin rolling the burrito toward the opposite end. Be sure to tighten the burrito as you roll and keep the sides tucked in. Serve immediately.
If you do not have a microwave-safe tortilla warmer, you can use damp paper towels to cover the tortillas while heating in the microwave.
Be sure to keep the warm tortillas covered to prevent the tortillas from drying out and the edges from becoming brittle. This would make rolling the tortillas a bit difficult.
If the Velveeta is too thick, you can add 1 to 2 tablespoons of half and half.
