So I checked online for a while in an attempt to find a good burrito recipe. Most of what I found were instructions to brown ground beef, add onion possibly and mix with salsa... I didn't want to do that. I wanted something saucy and flavourful. So I just decided to wing it. Bear with me.
Chop the garlic, slice the onion and slice the beef. I used very thinly sliced steak (sliced by the butcher into thin steaks) and then cut them into thin strips. They were basically beef noodles in shape.
Heat a large skillet and add the olive oil. When hot, add the garlic and onion and cook on medium high heat a few minutes until translucent. Add the beef stock, beef, chopped peppers, tomato paste, chile powder, pico de gallo and season with a little ground black pepper. Simmer on low 10-15 minutes until the sauce thickens. Meanwhile, you should be heating up the refried beans. I plopped them in a small sauce pan on low heat.
Heat the tortilla shells in a frying pan, oven or microwave. Serve with a column of beans in the centre, topped by a column of meat, layer of cheese and lettuce. You can also top with sour cream if you want. It would cut the heat a bit but I felt the extra creaminess wasn't necessary.
Grab the napkins and roll a fajito as best you can. I'm terrible....
Would also work just fine with ground beef, chicken, pork... whatever you want really. Obviously the number of peppers you use depends how hot you want it. I would suggest you test a piece of pepper first to see how hot they are and how much of that heat you desire.
