I am new to refried beans. They never ever looked appetizing to me. When my husband saw this recipe from last week’s Taco Night for “Refried” Beans and he was really excited to try it, I thought, well, it’s pretty simple, just beans and spices, I’ll give it a whirl. So we did, taco night, beans on the side, love it.
What I didn’t realize (and maybe all of you have figured this out, but again – I’m new to refried, uh “refried” beans) is that bean burritos are the BEST.
Faced with a huge pile of leftover beans, my husband instructed: you just put some beans in a tortilla with some cheese and: bean burrito.
So, yes, I heat a pile of leftover beans, spread them on a tortilla, and sprinkle some Chipotle Tabasco, pepper jack cheese, banana peppers, and some salsa. Fold up the tortilla, warm it on all sides and eat. It would probably be good with a scrambled egg tossed in there as well. Then: full for the rest of the day because: a whole burrito full of beans.
