Good Burritos

The biggest problem anyone can have with burritos (or any Mexican food, I believe) is over thinking them. This is as basic as it gets. Bean and Cheese Burritos. Don't even think about embellishing these in ANY way.

1 can of refried beans (Rosarita works best)
generous amounts of shredded Cheese
green sauce
large flour tortillas

Using a spoon, scoop the beans straight from the can and spread in a line down the middle of the tortilla, sprinkle with cheese, then dot with green sauce. Fold up bottom and roll tortilla. Wrap the burrito in a paper towel and microwave for 1 minute. Careful, it may be hot! If you don't use up all of the beans, just stick it in a tupperware and save for next time. Great for on the go, especially driving to Mutual night.
Do not add any of the following:
Black Beans
Sour Cream

If we have left over chicken, we like to shred it, add a can of green chilies and a can of mexican stewed tomatoes to it, and heat it. Sorry I can't eat burritos without green chilies. I think it's my mother's fault.

oh, thanks for reminding me! I'll be sure to add green chilies to the list of things NOT to add...:)
