"I made these burritos recently and really enjoyed them, I also made homemade salsa I will be posting the salsa recipe here, nothing is better than homemade so I suggest to make your own it's so easy to make! (I used two 16 ounce cans Eden Organic Spicy Refried Pinto Beans -- Eden Spicy Refried Black Beans would be okay to use with this recipe instead of the pinto, I advise when possible try to use organic products!"

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.


I made these burritos for dinner tonight, and they were sooooo good! Using canned refried beans makes it so easy, and all the good vegetables mixed into the beans really jazzes them up. The brown rice provides a really good texture, plus more nutrition and fiber. These are so satisfying you would never miss the meat! This is my burrito recipe from now on. Thanks Carol!
