onion, chopped fine
2 (1 lb) cans black beans or 2 (1 lb) cans pinto beans or 2 (1 lb) cans
pink beans, rinsed and drained
4 fresh jalapeno chilies or 4
pickled jalapeno chilies, if desired seeded and chopped
chopped cilantro, if desired
12 7-inch flour tortillas or 12
8-inch flour tortillas, warmed
grated monterey jack cheese
In a large heavy skillet cook the onion and the garlic in the oil over moderately low heat, stirring, until the onion is softened, add the beans, and mash about half of them coarse with the back of a wooden spoon.
Add the tomato sauce, the cumin, the chilies, and salt and black pepper to taste, simmer the mixture, stirring, for 3 to 5 minutes, or until it is thickened slightly, and stir in the cilantro.
Working with 1 warmed tortilla at a time and keeping the others covered, spread about 3 tablespoons of the filling down the center of each tortilla and roll the tortillas, enclosing the filling but keeping the ends open.
Arrange the burritos, seam sides down, in one layer in a baking dish, sprinkle them with the Monterey Jack, and bake them, covered with foil, in the middle of a preheated 350°F oven for 10 minutes.
