“I really like fast food chili cheese burritos (I know, scary), but these are even faster and taste just the same! Literally 1 minute to make too! Well not quite, but REALLY close! EXCELLENT LATE NIGHT SNACK! Also, the beauty of this recipe is that there isn't really a recipe, make it how hot you want, however many you want, etc.!”
10-12 burritos

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (16 ounce) canspicy fat-free refried beans
  • 1 (8 ounce) jarortega hot taco sauce
  • 1 (2 cup) bagshredded taco cheese or 1 (2 cup) bag Mexican blend cheese
  • 10 -12 flour tortillas (low carb ones taste surprisingly good!)


  1. Take one flour tortilla (I use taco size, my husband takes burrito size), put it on a microwaveable plate and spread a layer of refried beans in the middle of the tortilla leaving LOTS of room free on the sides for easy rolling.
  2. I put on about 2T, my husband maybe 3T of beans.
  3. (I just use a butter knife to scoop the beans out of the can and spread it around a little).
  4. Pour a strip of taco sauce long ways down the beans, about 1-2T.
  5. Grab a handful of cheese and put on top of the beans and sauce, about 1/4 cup.
  6. Microwave 30 seconds on high.
  7. Roll it up like a burrito (make it secure!) and microwave 20-30 seconds more.
  8. Repeat for remaining tortillas, or for however many you can eat.
  9. All ingredients can stay in fridge for later.
  10. Enjoy while piping hot!
