Print this Recipe    Bean Burrito 01

refried beans from two pounds of beans
12 large flour tortillas
8 oz shredded cheese
1 large onion, chopped fine
chopped peppers as desired

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:

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.

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

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.

An excellent variation is to brown a half pound to a pound of ground
beef or turkey, drain it, and stir it into the refried beans before
assembling burritos.
