Dave Tappan 10p-3p Mon-Fri
I’m Dave Tappan. I’ve been on the radio for 40+ years starting right out of high school. I’m currently the midday guy on Today’s Country, Q97. I play really good music and talk about the passions in my life, like fishing, golf, working and puttering around the house and food. I love boating and fishing on Lake Shasta (trolling for trout is my favorite), teeing it up at Gold Hills and preparing and cooking great food at home for my wife, two boys and friends. Barbecue, Italian and Mexican food are my favorites. I never met a taco, pizza or a rack of ribs I didn’t love! I am in constant search of the perfect cheeseburger and chicken wings too. I often post my recipes on my blog. I also love watching Giants baseball and the Food Network on one of my 7 tv’s in my house. A game on in the garage is my favorite. My happy place! I enjoy my monthly Friday night poker games and occasional Reno trips with the guys. There I am in a nutshell. Oh, I love peanuts too! I always have a big bucket of them sitting on my desk. Tune in some day. Would it kill ya?

I got this recipe from an old Mexican farmer named Eugenio Valdez Encarnacion Ramirez Gonzales Huertas who lost his tongue in an unfortunate turnip harvesting accident. It was impossible to have a conversation with him without laughing hysterically but he made great
1 lb. lean ground beef
2 cloves garlic, pressed
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon Mexican oregano
1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
3/4 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 (15 ounce) cans diced tomatoes, in sauce divided
2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded (or you can use a Mexican blend)
4 large flour tortillas
2 cups refried beans, with
1/4 teaspoon cumin, added
1 (10 ounce) cans enchilada sauce
1 (18 ounce) jars homestyle beef gravy
1. Brown ground beef, onion, and garlic, making sure to chop ground beef into very fine pieces while cooking.
2. Drain off any fat from browning.
3. Add Worcestershire sauce, paprika, oregano, chili powder, cumin, pepper, and half of the can of tomatoes with sauce, and simmer for 5 minutes.
4. While meat is simmering, heat beans with 1/4 tsp.
5. cumin, and make gravy.
6. For gravy, combine enchilada sauce, beef gravy, and the other half of tomatoes, and heat until almost boiling.
7. Soften tortillas according to package directions.
8. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
9. Assemble burritos.
10. On each tortilla, layer 1/4 of the meat mixture, 1/4 of the bean mixture, and 1/4 cup of cheese.
11. Fold sides of burrito in, then roll from the other sides until you have a “package”.
12. Place seam side down in a 13×9 baking dish.
13. When all burritos are assembled and in the baking dish, pour sauce mixture over all and sprinkle with remaining cheese.
14. Bake 15-20 minutes until cheese is melted and burritos are heated through.
15. Serve each burrito with extra sauce from pan spooned over the top.
16. Have sour cream, chopped onions, salsa, jalapenos, chopped lettuce and chopped tomatoes available to sprinkle on as desired.
