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.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spread about 1/2 cup of enchilada sauce in the bottom of a 13×9″ casserole dish.
- 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.
- Pour remaining sauce (as much as you’d like) over the top of the burritos.
- Sprinkle any remaining cheese over the sauce.
- Cook for 20-30 minutes or until heated through.
