directions

  • To make the filling:

  • 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 a potato masher.
  • Add the tomato sauce, the cumin, the chilies, chili powder, and salt and black pepper to taste, simmer the mixture, stirring, for 5-7 minutes, or until it is slightly thickened.
  • Working with 1 warmed tortilla at a time (keep the others covered while working with each) spread about 3 tablespoons of the filling down the center of each tortilla.
  • Working from the sides fold in the ends and then roll the tortillas enclosing the filling.
  • 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 10-12 minutes.
  • Sprinkle with green onions and serve with sour cream and salsa.

    I had made a BIG pot of Pintos - so went looking of something to do with them and found your recipe Little Bee. <br/>Since my pintos had been cooked with chilies, cumin, onions and bell peppers, I was not sure how much of the same things to add to make this recipe - but I went for it. <br/>And my flour tortillas were the small variety.... so, I added the 3 tsp of bean mixture and ended up rolling the burritos instead of making neat little packets.<br/>Grated Cheddar over all and covered with foil and followed the recipe.<br/>To serve I topped with some sour cream and hot salsa with a salad topped with Salsa Ranch Dressing.

    I am planning on making a batch of these and freezing them for my husband's lunches. SO fast, easy, and good! I used the mix of pinto and black beans and used only half of the chilies to be sure not to make them too hot, but they weren't so next time I'll put it all in. I love a quick meal like this! My 4 year old that doesn't eat anything even liked it.

    These were really good. I used 1 can low fat refried beans and 1 can kidney beans. I didn't have any tomato sauce so used 1 cup salsa. Cut the cumin down to 1/2 tsp for wimpy DH. Used taco cheese, the kind with spices, on top and served with green onions, diced fresh tomatoes and sour cream. And rooster sauce for those of us who aren't wimpy. DH thought they should have had taco meat instead of the whole beans but I made this recipe because it was meatless (and so was I).

    Good recipe overall, just not something I'll make again. The filling reminded me of a bland-ish bean chili, and I also expected it would be a bit thicker. Can't really go by me though as these were my first burritos ever!

    If the world ever depends on me being able to fold burritos, then SAVE YOURSELVES! I made this last night for dinner, it was really good, and it was fun to make, with all the mashing and what-not. ;) I must mention that I changed some stuff around (to try to use up some stuff that needed to be eaten). I used 10-inch-ish size whole wheat tortillas (La Tortilla Factory), I added about 1 1/3 c. chopped rotisserie chicken, about 1/2 c. sour cream, and about 1/2 c. cheddar cheese to the filling. I also used 1 - 10 oz., undrained can of Rotel (Mexican-style, seasoned with cilantro and lime) for the tomato sauce, and I omitted the green chilies. I also just put 1 tsp. of chili powder in. With that, I had enough filling, probably for about 11 tortillas. I also baked them uncovered, and broiled them for a few minutes at the end to get the cheese nice and golden. We're going on a camping trip and didn't want leftovers sitting in the fridge, so I made this in two 8x8 foil-lined, greased pans, and I froze one to bake whenever the mood strikes. I made this after a long day of work, and it was so easy. I served it with a green salad. Thanks for posting this great recipe!

    Delicious! My husband and I loved this recipe! I made a few small adjustments to our liking. I used one can of black beans, and one can of refried black beans, and did not mash anything. I also added a drained can of diced tomatoes. I am not a big cumin fan, so I used 1/2 teaspoon, and 1 tsp chili powder. I also used corn tortillas instead of flour. This recipe is a keeper, I will definitely make again!
