Quick and Easy Green Chili Burritos

This is such an easy and quick meal that calls for ingredients that I always have on hand. The original doesn't call for onions and garlic, but I add that to almost everything.
1 can (16 oz) refried beans
8 flour tortillas
1/2 pound ground beef
1 c shredded sharp cheddar cheese, divided
1 can (4oz) chopped green chilies
1 onion (optional)
1 or 2 cloves garlic, minced (optional)
Cook ground beef with onion and garlic, drain. Add refried beans and mix until heated through. Fill each tortilla with mixture plus 2 tablespoons of cheese. Fold ends and sides over filling and roll up. Place seam side down in a 9x13 baking dish. Sprinkle with chilies and remaining cheese.
Bake uncovered at 350 for 20 minutes or until heated through. Serve with sour cream and salsa if desired.
Note: My favorite flour tortillas are the ones you can buy that are uncooked. You just throw them on a skillet for a minutes each side. It takes a little extra prep work, but they're so much better.
