Easy Bean Burritos

MMMmmm, I made my mom's yummy bean burritos tonight. This recipe is super easy and everyone loves it.

1. Ingredients:
Large can on refried beans (I get fat free)
Jar of salsa
16 oz. bag of shredded cheese (I like Mexican blend, but you can use cheddar or anything else)
10 Flour tortillas (I used the larger burrito-sized ones here, but my mom uses small ones)

That's it. Sounds easy already, huh?

2. Mix ingredients together (minus the tortillas; also save a little cheese and salsa to sprinkle on top) in a large bowl.

3. Spoon mixture into tortillas and roll/fold. I do the burrito fold, but my mom just rolls them when she does them.

4. Place burritos into 9x13 baking pan (this will make 2 pans worth). Sprinkle leftover salsa and cheese over top of burritos.

5. Cover with foil and bake at 400 for 25-30 minutes. Eat and enjoy! Yummy!

6. We all love this. My mom has made it since I was a child. She used to leave the salsa off the top of one pan for my picky sisters (she just didn't tell them there were icky veggies inside with the salsa). You will probably have plenty of left-overs (unless you're feeding a crowd, which you can do with this) and they reheat well.

7. The clean-up is super easy. Look at that. That's all that was left of dishes to do! Woo Hoo!

I think I might have just drooled on the computer. I have a thing for enchiladas.
