Burritos are usually able to be held in the hands and eaten. A "wet burrito" is doused in sauce and cheese, making it a fork and kinife food.
I've not tried this yet as it's in my collection of things to try. If you try it, let me know what you think.

1 pound ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 (4.5 ounce) can diced green
1 (16 ounce) can refried beans
1 (15 ounce) can chili
1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed
1 (10 ounce) can enchilada sauce
6 (12 inch) flour tortillas, warmed
2 cups shredded lettuce
1 cup chopped tomatoes
2 cups shredded Mexican blend cheese
1/2 cup chopped green onions
1 Crumble ground beef into a skillet over medium-high
heat. Cook and stir until evenly browned. Add onion, and
cook until translucent. Drain grease, and season with
garlic, cumin, salt and pepper. Stir in the green chilies and
refried beans until well blended. Turn off heat, but keep warm.
2 In a saucepan, combine the chili without beans, tomato
soup and enchilada sauce. Mix well, and cook over medium
heat until heated through. Turn off heat and keep warm.
3 Place a warmed tortilla on a plate, and spoon a
generous 1/2 cup of the ground beef mixture onto the center.
Top with lettuce and tomato to your liking. Roll up
tortilla over the filling. Spoon a generous amount of the sauce
over the top, and sprinkle with cheese and green onions.
Heat in the microwave for 30 seconds, or until cheese is
melted. Repeat with remaining tortillas."
These "wet" burritos are delicious!
2 lbs. chuck roast-pot roast
1 package Lipton's onion soup mix
guacamole or chopped avocados-optional
El Pato or other red taco sauce-
Heat oven to 350-400 degrees. Sprinkle chuck roast with 1 to 2 packets of dry onion soup mix. Wrap in tin foil and bake for 2-3 hours until beef is tender and shreddable. The tinfoil will carmelize the onions and make tasty gravy later.
Pour any beef juices into saucepan and add El Pato or other taco sauce to taste. You may thicken it to a gravy consistency using standard thickening methods (cornstarch slurry works great-use 2-3 tablespoons of corn starch mixed with 1/3 cup water and add to gravy mixture).
When beef is cool, shred and set aside. Heat flour tortillas, place shredded beef, and whatever condiments desired (tomatoes, onions, cheese, sour cream, guacamole, etc.) inside. Place burrito on plate or in ramekin and smother with gravy sauce. Add more cheese, onions,black olives, etc. and place in oven or broiler until burrito is heated through.
Serve immediately. I dare you to eat just one!
