I love making an extra batch of these to freeze and then bake them at another time; just be sure to thaw them in the refrigerator the night before baking to insure even heating. Another thing I've done is go ahead and bake, let cool, wrap individually and freeze and then you can just grab one or two and microwave for a quick individual meal in a pinch. I know they don't have to be prebaked to microwave them but the flavor and filling consistency is much better doing so.


  • 8 small flour tortillas
  • 1 can (16 oz) refried beans
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, plus 1 cup
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1 cup cooked rice
  • 4 Tbsp. canned diced jalapenos, drained


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Combine the beans, salsa, rice, the 1 1/2 cup of cheese and jalapenos in a bowl.

Spread 1/2 cup of bean mixture about 1/3 of the way in on one edge of each tortilla and wrap and roll up burrito style.

Arrange burritos in a greased baking dish, sprinkle with the remaining 1 cup of cheese, cover and bake until heated through, about 20 to 25 minutes.

The zesty flavor in these lunch burritos is a great surprise.



Place beans in a large microwave-safe bowl; mash lightly. Stir in the chilies, onion, peppers, oil, chili powder, garlic, oregano, cumin and salt. Cover and microwave on high for 2 to 3 minutes, or until heated through, stirring once. Spread about 1/4 cup bean mixture down the center of each tortilla. Top each with 2 Tbsp. of the cheese; roll up. Place seam side down in an ungreased 11x7x2-inch microwave-safe dish. Cover with a damp microwave-safe paper towel. Microwave on high for 25 to 40 seconds, or until heated through. Serve with salsa and sour cream.

Makes 4 servings.

What is the secret recipe or tip to making good burritos?

Use tortillas that are fresh. You can tell about the freshness when you pick up the package on one side and the rest of the package significantly droops down on the non-supported side.
When you go to the grocery store, if this isn't happening, try again on another day.
Some days, none of the merchandise seems all that fresh.
The refrigerated ones usually don't droop. More like a tilt or a slant.
If the package has condensation, that's supposed to be good because it menas they were freshly packaged while still hot.


Personally, I don't care for that trademark because when I see the condensation, I think increased mold and allergies due to humidity.
