Refried Bean & Rice Burritos
As I stated in yesterday's post, I cook a lot of beans and rice. One way we utilize them is by making homemade burritos. These taste sooo good and are easy to make.
Homemade Bean & Rice Burritos
Refried beans (Click on the name to find the recipe)
1 c. uncooked rice
1 envelope taco seasoning
You can either buy some refried beans or use my recipe. If you use the recipe I have, there will be enough refried beans to make 10 decent sized burritos and enough left over for 3 servings of refried beans to eat as a side dish.
Get a small pot and add 2 cups of water and add the uncooked rice to the water. Bring it to a boil and then stir in the taco seasoning. Turn the heat low, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes. Once the rice is done, you are ready to put together your burritos.
For each burrito, spoon two spoonfuls of refried beans into the center of the tortilla, then the same amount of rice on top and then sprinkle it with cheese.
Roll up and either heat and eat or wrap and foil and freeze. We ate 5 of them and froze 5 of them.
To cook them, place them on a cookie sheet in a 350 degree preheated oven for 15 minutes.
To freeze the burritos, just wrap each burrito in foil and then place in a freezer bag.
To cook from a frozen state, cook in a 350 degree preheated oven for 20 minutes or microwave each one for 3 minutes.
