About this Recipe

I found this recipe online looking for easy quick lunches for my daughter.The only real difference with my version is that I do NOT use canned refried beans. Here is the original


1 (14 0z) can refried beans (I used my left over Baked Beans!
1 tsp chili powder or 1 teaspoon ground dried chile
1⁄2 tsp ground cumin
1⁄2 tsp dried oregano
dashes garlic powder
Optional (to your liking) hot sauce
1 cup hot cooked rice
8 oz shredded cheddar cheese or monterey jack pepper cheese (I used TexMex)
your favorite salsa
1 Pkg flour tortilla (10-in. The recipe usually uses 5 tortillas the way I make it)
4 Slices of Maple Leaf® Lazy Maple® Bacon



Cook bacon and crumble. Place all ingredients in a sauce pan.
Heat over Medium heat on stove top until warmed through.
If mixture becomes too thick, add water.
Mix in rice, if using.
Meanwhile, heat the tortillas.
Use the method you like best.
I usually just heat them one at a time in a dry skillet over medium heat, about 20-30 secs per side, or just until pliable.
Place about 1/3 cup bean mixture in each tortilla, add cheese, salsa and toppings, and roll.
You can bake them in a 350 degree oven for 10-15 minutes if you want them firmer/crisper.
I like to skip this step.
That's it!
These refrigerate well for a few days. I have froze mine for up to a month. I send to school with little containers of salsa and sour cream.

I end up with 5 medium sized burritos; if you use the rice or more veggies, you will get more.


My daughter loves these! It is a quick easy lunch! Just pull it out of the freezer,let thaw in refrigerator the night before and throw into lunch bag Voila!
