Bean and Cheese Burrito.

I made these yesterday for lunch and they were very good.  I used wheat tortillas.

Ingredients

8 Flour tortillas
4 cups Refried beans (canned is fine)
1 cup Monterey Jack cheese
1 cup Cheddar cheese
2 Green onions
1 Jalapeno chile
Sour cream
Salsa

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350. Warm flour tortillas in the microwave (wrap them in a dish towel in batches of 4), or in the oven (wrap them, 4 at at a time, in foil and warm for 15-20 minutes). Meanwhile, heat refried beans in a saucepan over medium heat, grate cheeses together, and mince green onions.


When tortillas are warm, fill each one down the middle, stopping about an inch before the bottom edge, with 1/2 cup of the beans, 1/4 cup of the cheeses, and minced green onion and/or minced jalapenos to taste.


Fold up bottom of tortilla, then roll it over to form a tube. Put rolled tortillas on baking sheet, seam side down, and bake about 5 minutes.


Garnish with sour cream and salsa, if desired.

Cook's Notes

You can substitute 2 lbs of cooked lean ground beef for the refried beans. Season the beef with salt, pepper and taco seasoning, if desired.

Quartered oranges, sliced melon or clusters of grapes offer a refreshing complement to this south-of-the-border favorite. Add shredded cabbage and carrots tossed with a simple vinaigrette for a complete meal.
