Bean and Cheese Burrito

Posted by Brette in Food

I must admit I don’t know the difference between burritos, enchiladas, etc. I’ve made a variety of these things, tossing different ingredients into tortillas, but never thinking about what they are. April Everyday Food has a recipe for a Bean and Cheese Burrito. The recipe called for refried beans. I’ve never bought these before. In the past when I’ve wanted to use beans in Mexican food, I take a can of kidney beans, add some water and cook it down till it is mushy. Then I add whatever seasoning I want to it and cook it to the right consistency, so this was new for me. This is also the first time I’ve put rice in a burrito. I’ve always concentrated more on adding veggies and wouldn’t have thought to add more starch to it. The recipe also calls for lettuce, cheese, salsa and sour cream. I added some avocado I wanted to use up. This was good, but I would like it with more veggies – some tomato and maybe some shredded carrot. While this isn’t a recipe I would want to rip out and keep, it was good inspiration to make my own burritos in the future.
