“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

  1. In a food processor, process beans and seasonings until smooth.
  2. Spread out the 8 tortillas; add an equal amount of the bean mixture in the center of each tortilla.
  3. On top of the bean mixture on each tortilla, add a sprinkle of mozzarella and cheddar cheese, some salsa, chopped pepper, and sour cream.
  4. 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).
  5. Place burritos in a nonstick frying pan or electric frying pan over medium heat.
  6. Flip burritos often until golden brown.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
