Fried Burritos

Recipe by hkcurry
READY IN: 30mins
YIELD: 8 burritos




  • Warm the tortillas for 15 seconds in the microwave. This will prevent them from cracking when you work with them.
  • If they are not sufficiently heated, heat for an additional 10 seconds until fairly warm.
  • Once heated, keep them warm by placing them in a tortilla warmer, or two inverted plates.
  • Put the oil in a deep skillet. The oil should be about an inch deep.
  • Turn the burner to medium-low. The oil is ready when a drop of water "dances" on it.
  • Remove one tortilla at a time from the warmer and place on clean surface.
  • Spread 1-2 tablespoon refried beans in a line down center of tortilla.
  • Place half a piece of cheese, followed by an additional fourth a piece cheese on the beans.
  • Fold the top and bottom of the tortilla in, then the sides.
  • Place, seam side down, in the oil.
  • Fry until browned on one side. This will not take long. Turn and brown on other side.
  • Prepare the remaining tortillas as you did before and place them to the oil. You should have NO MORE than 3 frying at one time.
  • When you remove them from the oil, place on a thick layer of paper towels to dry.
