Over the years I’ve collected quite a few “GO TO” recipes. They are usually always easy, require little preparation and ALWAYS taste good. They also require ingredients I always have on hand which makes things easier. This next recipe just happens to be one of those quick and easy meals that the whole family loves – Green Chile Burros!
But before I share the recipe, I wanted to share with you something kinda funny…. Growing up we always called my great-grandma “Grandma Bean Burro.” I never thought anything of it and it wasn’t until I was a teenager that I realized that really wasn’t her name. I asked my mom just recently why we called her that and she said it was because all of us knew her for her “burros”. Apparently, she made the best homemade burritos and everyone LOVED them. Her real last name was actually Gutierrez, and I think “Bean Burro” may have just been easier to say as a little kid. I still get a chuckle from others when I mention Grandma Bean Burro for such a “funny” name, and I tell you this because every time I make these BURROS I think of her. Fortunately, we don’t have to do all the hard work like my grandma did in making the sauce, because we found on that is our FAVORITE!! It’s 505 Sauce, and can be found at Fry’s back in Arizona. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to find it here in Texas but I did find out you can order the sauce from their online store, so that’s where I got mine from (and I’m telling you guys it is SO worth it if you like Green Chile Burros!) All you do is cook your meat and add this sauce and you’re good to go!
