"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Ingredients:  
1 lb. leanest ground beef
1 Med onion, diced.
1 Tbsp Olive or canola oil
rest of the William's chili seasoning
1 tsp brown sugar
Salt/pepper
16 oz can fat free refried beans
2 Largest burrito-sized Tortillas
2 cups reduced fat white american or monterrey cheddar shredded, divided

Garnish: chopped lettuce, chopped tomatoes, hot sauce, and/or salsa.

Directions:
Directions:
. In a large heavy-bottomed skillet over medium heat, saute diced onion in oil until translucent, add ground beef and saute until well done. Drain. Add chili seasoning, sugar, and salt/pepper to taste. Set aside



2. Lay out the two tortillas side by side, along with the ground beef, beans, and cheese. Layer, starting with a half can each of the beans per tortilla, 1/2 cup cheese per tortilla, and half the bround beef (approx 1 1/3 cup each).


The trick is getting them into the cooking sprayed casserole dish. Gently fold each of the sides in, overlapping. Pick each one up with both hands: fingers on top holding the flap closed and thumbs spaced out supporting the bottom. Lift straight up and over the dish, then quickly turn upside down and place seam side down.


3. Pour sauce over casserole dish. Sprinkle over remaining cup of cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes (if ingredients are still warm) or 50-60 minutes if casserole was prepared earlier and placed in fridge. Or until edges are bubbly and cheese is nicely browned.


If desired, garnish with chopped lettuce and tomatoes, serving rooster or other hot sauce or salsa on the side. Serves 4 (Serves 4 as a Villa "split" or serves 2 for a whole burrito per person)
