Bean Burritos

You can either make these burritos yourself or put the ingredients on the table and let everyone build their own.
Yield 6 burritos
Time 15 minutes (once tortillas and beans are prepared)
  • aluminum foil
  • small saucepan
  • wooden spoon
  • several bowls and spoons
  • plate
Ingredients Basic recipe

Optional add-ins

Directions Wrap tortillas in foil and keep warm in 400° oven while you prepare other ingredients. When ready to serve, transfer to a plate.

Add a bit of water to beans and heat on the stove, stirring occasionally.

If allowing everyone to make their own burritos, place each ingredient in its own bowl with a spoon and set on the table along with the plate of tortillas.

To make the burrito, spread beans down the center of a tortilla and add toppings in whatever order you like (other than cheese, which should be first, if using).

Roll up and eat.

Notes You can serve the guacamole, salsa, and/or sour cream on the side, or spread them on the burrito where they will get warm and the sour cream melty.
