I've been making these for years and I have to share the wealth. My brother and my dad want me to get these in a restaraunt....

3lbs Lean ground beef (I like the lara's lean either 92% or 96%)
3 packs taco seasoning (I like the ortega low sodium)
1 can fat free refried beans
1 pack of 8 Lo-carb tortillas
2-4 cups of 2% mexican cheese (I like Kraft)
1-2 cans of pork green chile
makes about 6 very large burritos

Brown ground beef and rinse very well in a collander. If you do this right the beef will be virtually pure protein.
I brown it, rinse it, cook another minute and rinse again. Sweetness...

Then add the seasoning and water and simmer for about 10 min, at 5 min in add the refried beans. It will become a beef and been mix.

Next, spoon the mix into a tortilla and wrap with a bit of cheese. Place in a standard size glass pan (that's what I use).
Do this about 6 times and pan is full. Empty pork green chile over entire pan. Top with cheese.

Bake 350 for about 20 minutes or until totillas get a little crispy.

Spoon out with spatula and cover with lettuce, tomato, taco sauce, salsa, etc.

These are the bomb, trust me.

You've got to try them and let me know what you think. Get good quality pork green chile if you can. That's what makes the dish awesome.

That is funny you asked that. I used to use what ever brand the local supermarket carried. I honestly can't remember the name maybe Juanita's??? But just this last week they stopped selling it so now I will have to look elsewhere. What brand are you using?

It is normally about $5 per can for the good stuff. I'm considering ordering it online.

YES, that was it! Stokes! That's what the local supermarket had here in Ohio. It was on the top shelf in the mexican food section but they no longer carry it. It was good stuff. I'm going to try and find some online now to order.... I'll let you know what I find.

By the way where in the Ohio valley are you located? Do we have an ABC chapter? I'd love to become part of the team.

The only thing I found was what we talked about a few weeks ago. ordering it online.... I'm still looking though. there are quite a few specialty store in my area so one of them should have it.

Bump on this, anyone know where I can get some pork green chile in stores? I'd rather not have to buy it online.
