 Ingredients List

  • Refried beans from two
  • -pounds of beans
  • 12 lg Flour tortillas
  • 8 oz Shredded cheese
  • 1 lg Onion; chopped fine
  • Chopped peppers as desired


Now that you've made a big bowl of refried beans, you're probably
wondering what to do with them. I always turn them into a big batch of bean
burritos which can be microwaved on demand for a quick, cheap, filling

All ingredients besides the beans and tortillas should be considered
optional. Decide what you like in your burritos and add it in.

Get the tortilla wraps to room temperature and separate them. Make sure
they can be folded without cracking; if this is a problem it may help to
warm them in a microwave a bit.

For each burrito:

1. Lay one tortilla on your working surface. Spoon exactly one twelfth of
the bean mixture onto the center of the tortilla in a roughly rectangular
blob. Sprinkle some cheese & onion on the bean mixture.

2. Fold in the tortilla to form the two ends of the burrito. Fold one of
the side flaps over the top and around the other side of the bean mix;
you'll almost tuck it in under the bean mix so as to force the burrito into
a round shape. Fold the other side over. [If you can't understand what to
do from these instructions don't sweat it too much; as long as you
completely enclose the filling you're okay, and it's not hard to figure out
your own folding method.] Set the burrito aside with these folded sides on
the bottom.

These freeze quite nicely. Two of these large ones (or one with side
dishes) makes a meal. You could of course make smaller ones using the
smaller wraps, though I'm not sure how many you'll get.
