Bean Burritos Enchilada Style


These Bean Burritos Enchilada Style are probably one of the easiest recipes you’ll ever make! And I use the term “recipe” lightly- it is basically just a handful of ingredients thrown together to make something delicious. The recipe I found as inspiration for this meal said to buy frozen bean and cheese burritos, but I decided to construct my own instead. Not because I have anything against frozen burritos- it’s actually quite the opposite! I figured if I am already in the kitchen planning to add additional steps to the cooking process of frozen burritos, I might as well save those for a time when I don’t feel like cooking at all! Here is the “recipe.”



  • 10 Soft-Taco sized Flour Tortillas
  • 1 can of Refried Beans
  • 3 cups (give or take) of Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 can of Red Enchilada Sauce (I ONLY use this brand HERE.)
  • Toppings: guacamole, salsa, sour cream, diced tomatoes, sliced olives, etc.



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spread about 1/2 cup of enchilada sauce in the bottom of a 13×9″ casserole dish.
  2. Assemble your burritos by filling each tortilla with a couple heaping spoonfuls of beans and a small handful of cheese. Roll up and place seam-side down in the casserole pan. Line them up, side by side.
  3. Pour remaining sauce (as much as you’d like) over the top of the burritos.
  4. Sprinkle any remaining cheese over the sauce.
  5. Cook for 20-30 minutes or until heated through.

    I actually just made these 2 nights ago as a last min meal. I used frozen because it was faster but I wish I had made homemade. The frozen were still good, but homemade would be better. I also went the easy route and just microwaved mine to heat up the sauce and melt the cheese.

    Hey, would you consider doing a post/link about baby showers…ideas for hosting as well as favor and gift ideas. Just wondering…I think it would be great and so helpful to get others ideas (practically all my friends are prego right now!)
