Vegetarian Tex Mex Bean Burritos

"Quick and easy spicy bean burritos that the whole family will enjoy! Tex-Mex is a highly spiced and vibrant style of cooking that developed as an evolution of Northern Mexican cuisine. These burritos are fairly spicy with 1/2 tbsp chili powder and medium salsa. Feel free to increase the chili powder if using a milder salsa. I also use whole-wheat tortillas for extra fibre. These freeze well."

directions

  • In a food processor, process beans and seasonings until smooth.
  • Spread out the 8 tortillas; add an equal amount of the bean mixture in the center of each tortilla.
  • On top of the bean mixture on each tortilla, add a sprinkle of mozzarella and cheddar cheese, some salsa, chopped pepper, and sour cream.
  • Fold tortillas up into burritos (fold the bottom third of tortilla over the filling; fold over both sides of tortilla; roll up to enclose the filling).
  • Place burritos in a nonstick frying pan or electric frying pan over medium heat.
  • Flip burritos often until golden brown.
  • OAMC; To Freeze - For a quick snack or dinner later on, after finishing frying, place single burritos (or family size portions if for a family meal) into plastic storage bags, then place individual bags into large freezer bag and freeze.
  • To re-heat - When ready for a burrito, pop it out of the bag and heat in the microwave for 1-2 minutes on medium power. Or, for a crispier burrito, pan fry the burrito until warm the outside is crisp.

    My step kids, who are mostly vegetarian loved these (even though I assembled it more in a lasagna style dish). I was very pleased with the bean filling. Made for ZWT3...a Toast to the Captains!

    These were pretty good. Good convenience food. Is nice to hmake them and then be able to freeze them for quick lunch.

    This is how I make bean burritoes, but I buy canned refried beans that are already seasoned. I only recently tried freezing them -- they taste different, like the frozen burritoes you can buy, but without so many weird preservatives.

    We had these for dinner but I would eat them anytime they are so good. Added more cheese and we warmed them in the oven until the cheese melted. Topped my burrito with sour cream and salsa.
     

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

Hi! Thanks for visiting my page! I just graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Human Nutritional Sciences in May 2008 after 5 years of hard work. My hard work paid off as I was accepted to a post graduate dietetic internship which I am currently completing and will be done in June. The internship allows me achieve professional designation as a registered dietitian. This is a very exciting but also a very busy time for me so I have not been contributing to zaar nearly as much as i'd like to. I have always loved baking and cooking and looking for healthier recipes or ways to make recipes healthier to fit into my lifestyle. I am pesco-vegetarian as I do not want animals to suffer for my consumption. I also love to be active in individual sports and train year round for triathlon. I am both an active racer and volunteer. The distance I prefer most is the Sprint distance - 750m swim, 20km bike, 5km run. This upcoming race season marks my 16th year of participating in triathlon. I love it just as much, if not more, than I did 16 years ago!! I also have a newfound love for Iyengar yoga. I have a profound love for animals and the pretty little kitty you see as my icon is my 16 1/2 year old cat Snuggles. Sadly, Snug passed away in March 2006, and is dearly, dearly missed.
