We follow the directions on a packet of "Old ElPaso" burrito mix 
(basicially browning ground beef, removing the fat, and simmerting the 
mix) add some canned refried beans.  Then dehydrate the enitre mixture.  
We reconstitute it by simmering.  You can dehydrate toppings also.  The 
tortillas travel well and so
me cheese really makes a great meal.

It's a balancing act to try to end up with enough moisture to have a 
sauce, but not so much that you end up with pasta soup.  On the other 
hand, I haven't heard any complaints, expecially after a long day.  :)
