  1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook the ground beef until brown; drain excess fat.
  2. Reduce the heat to medium and add the tomatoes, chili powder, garlic and cumin.
  3. Cook for 2 minutes, blending well.
  4. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  5. Fill each tortilla with a layer of refried beans, a sprinkling of green chili peppers, a heaping tablespoon of tomato sauce and a small portion of ground beef.
  6. Roll up the tortillas, burrito-style, and place seam side down in a 13x9x2-inch baking dish (or place them in freezer bags and squeeze out excess air before sealing).
  7. When all the tortillas that you plan to cook are in the baking dish, sprinkle them liberally with Monterey Jack cheese.
  8. Bake for 20 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbly.
  9. Serve immediately with shredded lettuce, mashed avocados, and sour cream.
