  • 7ozfresh mozzarella cheesethinly sliced

  • cupsmilk
  • ¼tspsalt

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to broil or grill settings on medium heat. Lightly spray a baking sheet / tray with cooking oil spray; set aside.

  2. Heat the olive oil in a large pan or skillet. Sauté onions and garlic until translucent and fragrant over low-medium heat.

  3. Add in the ground beef and sausage; fry until browned, while breaking the meat up with a wooden spoon.

  4. Stir in ¾ of the tomato puree. Add the tomato paste, bouillon powder, salt and pepper (to taste), and dried herbs. Bring to a simmer until sauce thickens. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly (the sauce will be thicker than normal lasagne sauce to avoid wetting and ripping the tortillas).

  5. While cooling, prepare white sauce (optional)

  6. Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add flour; cook, quickly stirring for 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Gradually add milk, starting with ¼ cup, whisking constantly, until mixture is smooth. Return to a low heat and cook, stirring continuously with a wooden spoon, for about 10 minutes, or until sauce thickens and comes to a boil. (It should coat the back of a wooden spoon.) Remove from heat.

  7. Heat tortillas in microwave for one minute until soft. Place two slices of mozzarella onto the tortilla; spread about ¼ cup of meat on each tortilla, and top with 2 more slices of mozzarella. Fold over tortilla ends, and roll up. Pour remaining tomato puree/sauce over the top (about 2 tablespoons each burrito), spoon white sauce over the tomato sauce, and top with the shredded mozzarella. Place burritos on prepared baking sheet / tray; bake burritos until cheese has melted and the tortillas are golden. Serve immediately.
