Had these tonight for supper. We really enjoyed them. These were just so quick to put together. The flavors really blended well. I did add some salt while it was simmering a bit. I haven't had refried beans in such a long time I forgot how mushy it was. My DD didn't want to try them cause she doesn't like whole beans, so I showed her the can and how mashed up they were. She really liked it and ate it up. I had mine with some salsa ...delicious. Served with Arroz Pilaf Made for ZWT5
Muy bien! Muy bien! I just love these burritos. At first, I could particularly taste some of the spices but baking them made them blend well with the rest. I also love that it was baked as it held its shape better afterwards and made it more attractive and crunchier. I served it with Lighter Guacamole , salsa and sour cream as recommended. Muchas gracias! Made for ZWT5's The Chow Hounds.
I took this over to a friend's house as the main dish for a mexican dinner. I doubled the recipe but only used 1- 2 oz. can of green chilies, 1 1/2 cans of refried beans and 1- 8 oz. can of tomato sauce. We topped the burritos off with salsa and sour cream. Thanks, chia.
