homemade bean and rice burritos

being a busy mom of two and working from home taking care of toddlers i need quick and easy lunch for me to throw in the microwave while they eat.

 

ingredients

1pk of McCormick’s chicken taco seasoning or any you like

rice any kind will work

2 can refried beans(1 can will make 8 depending on you portion size) or whole beans  or homemade

cheese

1pk of tortilla  i used the gluten free ones i think they our the small size

sour cream

 

homemade refried beans

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups of dry pinto beans (about 1 lb or 450gm)
  • 3 quarts of water
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion (optional)
  • 2 Tbsp (or more to taste) pork lard, bacon fat, or olive oil (for vegetarian option)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • Salt to taste
  • Cheddar cheese (optional)

2 Cook the beans in water:

Regular method Put beans into a pot and cover beans with at least 3 inches of water—about 3 quarts for 2 1/2 cups of dry beans. Bring to a boil and then lower heat to simmer, covered, for about 2 1/2 hours.

The cooking time will vary depending on the batch of beans you have. The beans are done when they are soft and the skin is just beginning to break open.

 

Strain the beans from the cooking water.

3 Sauté onions in fat: Add the onions and lard/fat/oil to a wide, sturdy (not with a flimsy stick-free lining) frying pan on medium high heat. Cook onions until translucent. (Note the onions are optional, you can skip them if you want.)

4 Add beans, mash them in pan: Add the strained beans and about a 1/4 cup of water to the pan. Using a potato masher, mash the beans in the pan, while you are cooking them, until they are a rough purée.

5 Add water,&salt: Add more water if necessary to keep the fried beans from getting too dried out. Add salt to taste.

 

to cook the  rice

cook rice as per direction on bag  + add the whole packet of seasoning to the uncooked rice . the rice will soak up the flavor as it cooks

now you get to assemble the burrito how ever you want

i put 6 squares of  saran wrap down so i could do 6 at a time then tortilla , refried beans, cheese ,rice and avocado. if you are going to freeze them i would also wrap then in tin foil. and leave out the avocado it dosen’t freeze will you can always unwrap your burrito and put it in that way.
