  • 3 -5 dashes garlic powder
  • hot sauce

How to cook:
  1. Place beans in microwave safe dish.
  2. Stir in next 5 ingredients.
  3. Heat on medium power for about 3 minutes or until hot, stirring once halfway through.
  4. Alternatively, heat over low heat on stovetop until warmed through.
  5. If mixture becomes too thick, add water.
  6. Mix in rice, if using.
  7. Meanwhile, heat the tortillas.
  8. Use the method you like best.
  9. I usually just heat them one at a time in a dry skillet over medium heat, about 20-30 secs per side, or just until pliable.
  10. Place about 1/3 cup bean mixture in each tortilla, add cheese, salsa and toppings, and roll.
  11. You can bake them in a 350 degree oven for 10-15 minutes if you want them firmer/crisper.
  12. I like to skip this step.
  13. That's it!
  14. These refrigerate well for a few days.
  15. I can't speak for the freezer.
  16. I end up with 5 medium sized burritos; if you use the rice or more veggies, you will get more.
  17. Since I usually reheat one or two at a time, I add sour cream after reheating.
  18. No one would call these authentic Mexican food; they taste more like a fresher and better version of Taco Bell, but they are very good.

Cuisine: American,Mexican
Number of ingredients: 18
Ingredients:
  • 1 (15-ounce) can refried beans
  • 2 cups cooked brown rice
  • 1 cup of your favorite salsa (any kind should do fine)
  • 1 (5-ounce) can diced green chilies
  • 1 cup frozen corn kernels (thawed)
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese plus another 1/2 cup or more for topping (omit for vegan version)
  • 12-10- inch flour tortillas*
  • 1 cup shredded cooked chicken
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon ground cumin (to taste)
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt + more to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper + more to taste
  • Salsa
  • Sour cream or cashew sour cream
  • Guacamole
  • Diced tomatoes
  • Diced avocados
  • Fresh cilantro
  • Sliced scallions
How to cook:
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the refried beans, brown rice, salsa, chilies, corn, and 1 cup cheese. If adding chicken to half, move 3 cups of the mix to a separate medium bowl, add the chicken, and stir. If making a vegan filling (without cheese), add 1/2 teaspoon cumin, 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Taste and add more seasoning if desired.
  3. If the tortillas don't seem pliable (likely to rip when you bend/roll them), place tortillas on a large plate and cover with a damp dishtowel. Microwave on high for 30 seconds to steam the tortillas.
  4. One at a time, lay the tortillas flat and place 1/3 cup filling just below the center. Fold in the sides of the tortilla so that they nearly touch, then bring up the bottom of the tortilla, pulling the contents tight, rolling the burrito from the bottom upl, and keeping the sides tucked as you go. For more guidance, here's a terrific piece from The Kitchn on how to roll a burrito.
  5. Lay the burritos side by side in a 9-inch x 13-inch pan (or, if you're making a meaty version and a vegetarian version, keep them segregated by using two 8-inch by 8-inch pans).
  6. Sprinkle additional cheddar cheese over the top (omit for vegan version) and bake for about 20 minutes, until heated through, cheese is melted, and they're starting to turn golden brown. Serve.
