Chimichangas!

1 pound lean ground beef
3/4 cup chopped onion
3/4 cup diced green bell pepper
2 cups taco sauce
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 (16 ounce) can refried beans
8 (12 inch) flour tortillas
1 (16 ounce) package shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1 tablespoon butter, melted

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Brown the ground beef in a skillet over medium-high heat. Drain excess grease, and add the onion and bell pepper. Cook for about 5 more minutes, or until vegetables are tender. Stir in the taco sauce, and season with chili powder, garlic salt and cumin, stirring until blended. Cook until heated through, then remove from heat, and set aside.
Open the can of beans, and spread a thin layer of beans onto each of the tortillas. Spoon the beef mixture down the center, and then top with as much shredded cheese as you like. Roll up the tortillas, and place them seam-side down onto a foil-lined baking sheet. Brush with melted butter.
Bake for 30 to 35 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden brown.

If you wish to mix things up, before serving, spoon red (or green) pepper sauce over chimis and cover with grated cheese. Place under broiler long enough to melt the cheese for gooey goodness.
