Crispy Baked Black Bean Burritos

"Kids love these! Make extras because the burritos can be frozen prior to baking. Just defrost them and then bake according to the directions."

Ready In:
12 burritos




  • Preheat oven to 400. Combine black and refried beans in a saucepan, and add the chili powder, cumin and garlic. Simmer for 5 minutes. Mash the bean mixture into a thick puree (I use a potato masher right in the pan).
  • On a plate, lay a tortilla flat and place 2 tablespoons of the bean mixture in the center of the tortilla. Top with some scallions, tomatoes and cheese. Roll up into a tube shape and place into a 9x13-inch baking pan, seam side down. Repeat until you've used all the tortillas and/or bean mixture.
  • Bake the burritos until they are browned, about 15 minutes. Top with salsa and/or sour cream as desired.

    My husband and I really liked these. It was still too spicy for my toddler. It made filling for about 10 burritos rather than 12. I think it would taste great with some sliced avacado inside.


Well, I love to cook! Big surprise there. I've gotten so many great recipes from RecipeZaar that I finally decided to join. My goal is to organize all of my stray recipes to make sure they don't get lost, and also to remember which ones we love! I like a lot of variety, so I rarely cook the same thing week after week. The trouble is, as time goes by, it becomes difficult to remember all of the dishes that everyone loved and/or menus that were a hit when we had company. I'm hoping RecipeZaar will help on that front. I work part-time and have 2 young children, so mostly what I focus on these days is preparing simple, fresh, healthy meals that all of us will enjoy. Our kids are not coddled - they are expected to eat what they are served. However, I do try to have at least one item on the menu that I KNOW they'll like. They are very good eaters overall, but of course they have slightly different tastes, and my son is a "separator," which makes soups and casseroles a challenge sometimes. Luckily, my husband will eat anything (and I mean ANYTHING) that is put in front of him. :-)
