How about fixing these quick, easy bean burritos tonight? Best part: you probably have everything in your pantry already.
Mike said, "You know what would take this meal up a notch? Ground beef!" This is coming from the man who forgets to abstain from meat every.single.Lenten.Friday. Except that time he had the flu. Because he didn't eat anything.
So, what is this miracle meal? Bean burritos, of course. It is culinary genius - mainly because it requires heavy can opening skills and a prerequisite that you know how to preheat an oven.
1 pkg of 8-12 soft tortillas
2 cans refried beans
1 pkg shredded cheese
Preheat your oven to 350F
Mix cans of beans with half of the bag of cheese
Fill tortillas with bean mixture and roll
Place seam down in a baking dish
Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes
Top with rest of cheese and bake until cheese is melty
Serve with salsa and sour cream
I didn't include a picture because it is a bean burrito, and I think you get it. Also, we ate them already, so opportunity missed. Bean there; ate that. .
