Seahawks Birthday Cake

One of my uncles has his birthday on Christmas Eve. We were visiting him and my grandma for Christmas this year and so I made him a cake with his favourite NFL team on it!

Just for clarification... in my house we call these burritos. However, I have since been informed that they should really be called enchiladas. I still tend to call them burritos, but for this post I will attempt to refer to them properly.


1 recipe taco meat
1 (medium sized) can of tomato sauce (or enchilada sauce if you prefer, although this is hard to find here in Canada)
1 can refried beans
2 cups grated cheddar cheese
8 soft tortilla shells

Preheat oven to 350. In a 9x13 pan, spread out half of the tomato sauce. Prepare taco meat. With the stove still on a low setting, stir the refried beans into the taco meat until melted. Stir in 1 1/2 cups of grated cheese, until mostly melted. One at a time, take a taco shell, add 1/8th of the meat mixture, then fold at both ends and roll. Place rolled taco in pan. Repeat for all tacos until meat mixture is used up. Spread the rest of the tomato sauce on top of the enchiladas. Top with remaining cheese. Bake 20-25 minutes until cheese is melted and tomato sauce is bubbly.

Serve with sour cream and salsa!

Note: Usually I use tomato sauce, however for the picture above I was using green enchilada sauce. I really like green enchilada sauce but it is difficult to find in Canada.
