READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by GreenEyedLS

My dad used to make this once a week growing up. The recipe came off a tortilla wrapper over 20 years ago. Super easy, cheap, lowfat, and yummy! Serve with a salad for a great weeknight meal.

These burritos went together really fast and were very good. I did add extra shredded cheese on top of the bean mixture after spreading on the tortillas because we like extra cheesy. Made for Spring 2013 Pick A Chef.
