Paul Newman's Bandito Baked Burritos

“This recipe is from Newmans Own. I love these crunchy burritos. The original recipe calls for a 10oz. can refried beans but all I could find are 16oz. cans, so if it looks like too much you can reserve it as a side dish. The original recipe calls for all the cheese to go on top of the burritos but I like to put some inside as well. He also puts the green chiles on top but I usually add them to the filling.”
