Baked Steak Burritos

These are delicious! You can try your own variations: chicken/ground beef instead of steak, adding corn, black beans, or onions...
1/4 cup butter/margarine
1 pkg (1 oz.) taco seasoning (I used 1/2 tsp garlic pwdr, 1/2 tsp cumin, 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper instead)
1 can (16 oz.) refried beans
1 1/2 lb. beef boneless sirloin tip steak, cut into thin, bite-size strips (I don't really think it matters what kind of steak you use, as long as it's thin pieces)
12 6-inch flour tortillas (I used whole wheat and they tasted great)
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese (8 oz.)
1 can (10 oz.) enchilada sauce, hot or mild
1 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend (4 oz.)
*Heat oven to 400 degrees. In 10-inch skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in taco seasoning. Add beef strips; cook 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally, until desired doneness; drain.
*Meanwhile, place refried beans in microwaveable dish. Microwave uncovered for 2 minutes.
*Spread each tortilla w/ refried beans to within 1/4 inch of edge. Top each with beef and Cheddar cheese. Roll up, folding in sides. In ungreased 9x13 glass baking dish, place burritos with seam sides down. Pour enchilada sauce over burritos. Sprinkle with Mexican cheese blend.
*Bake, uncovered 7-12 minutes or until burritos are thoroughly heated and cheese is melted.
