What's in a Smothered Chile Verde Burrito
Meat: I typically use ground beef because it's quick, but shredded beef or pork can be substituted. If using shredded beef or pork,  use 1 cup of broth the meat was cooked in.
Onions: I prefer yellow onions...it's a little sweeter.
Potatoes: Russett or gold potatoes
Diced green chiles: Store-bought can or roast an anaheim and dice.
Salsa Verde: Store-bought or homemade salsa verde.
Enchilada sauce- Green chile sauce






When meat mixture is cooked, spoon mixture across the center of each tortilla; top each with 3 tablespoons cheese. Fold the bottom and sides of the tortilla over filling and roll-up. Mix salsa verde and enchilada sauce. 
Preheat oven. Place rolled burritos in a greased 11 x 8-in. baking dish. Pour sauce mixture over top; sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake, uncovered, until cheese is melted, 10-15 minutes.
