Spoon refried bean mixture in equal amounts onto center of each tortilla and spread. Top with lettuce, cheese, jalapenos, and spoon on additional salsa and sour cream. Fold tortillas burrito style over the filling and serve.

Thanks Amuck, I'm going to try both recipes.
Refried Bean Soup
1 small onion, chopped (or you can use a dash of onion powder)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 can (32 oz.) refried beans
1 (16 oz.) can diced tomatoes, undrained
1 can (10 oz.) diced tomatoes with chilies, undrained
2 cups chicken broth
crushed tortilla chips
shredded cheese or soy cheese (cheddar or monterey jack)
sour cream or tofu sour cream
Cook onion and garlic in oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until tender. Add beans, both tomatoes and chicken broth, stirring until smooth. Be sure to mash the lumps of refried beans until completely dissolved. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes.
Ladle soup into individual soup bowls; top with crushed tortilla chips, cheese, and sour cream. Serve immediately.
I have added 1/2-pound of cooked hamburger to this.
I have also cooked it in a crockpot for a couple of hours.
