How to make our easy homemade Crispy Bean and Cheese Burritos recipe:

When starting this recipe, begin by cooking the boil in a bag rice according to the directions on the package. This should take about 10 minutes.

Then, drain the rice and place it in a medium size bowl.

Add the cup of salsa to the rice, along with the cilantro and mix it all together well.

Next, take your ripe avocado and dice it up. After it is cut up, place it in a bowl and add the fresh lime juice to the avocado and toss it until the avocado is covered.

Now, place the six tortillas on your counter and sprinkle ⅓ cup of shredded cheese in the center on each shell.

Next, add a ¼ cup of the strained and washed black beans on each shell on top of the cheese.

After that is done, scoop another ⅓ cup of the rice mixture on top of the beans for each of the shells.

To finish building, spread the avocado evenly amongst the six shells.

Now, fold in one side, then its opposite side, then begin to roll the bottom up to the top to keep the filling inside making your burrito shape.

Then, spray the tops and bottoms of the burritos with nonstick cooking spray.

On a large nonstick skillet pan, heated to medium-high heat, place three of the burritos seams down for about 1 minute on each side or until they begin to get golden brown and crispy.

Once those three are done, do the same for the remaining three, then eat and enjoy!

    These look great, but I am wondering about the cheese. It calls for 1 cup in the recipe, but the directions say to put 1/3 cup on each of six tortillas. Should there be 2 cups of cheese or do you mean 1/6 cup per? Not a huge deal, just wondering. :)

  2. Cyd says:

    Hi Grace. Thanks so much for catching that. We added about 1/3 cup to each burrito, so the recipe now reads 2 cups of cheese. If you have a hard time rolling up the tortilla, you could reduce the cheese slightly. Hope this helps!!

  3. Amy says:

    Can you freeze and reheat? They sound great for quick lunches!

  4. Cyd says:

    Everything should freeze fine except for the avocado. They turn dark pretty fast. You could leave them out and add them at the end.

  5. Lynne says:

    Oh my! These were just delicious. I used a bagged microwave brown rice (so easy!) and I always use a salsa with corn and red beans in it. Yum! For cheese I used a cheddar mix as well as pepper jack, and it gave it just the right zing. I didn’t use spray, but put a little oil in the pan, and it worked very well. I need to practice folding the tortillas though! ?. The flavors of the cilantro and avocado with the lime juice made this very flavorful. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe!

  6. Cyd says:

    Hi Lynne. Thanks so much for taking the time to leave us a nice comment on these burritos. It's always fun to hear how everyone tweaks recipes for their family and liking. Have a great week and thanks for stopping by

  7. Tiffany says:

    Hi! Just wondering how much cooked rice this would be equivalent to if we didn't buy the boil in a bag rice. Thanks!

  8. Cyd says:

    It's about 1 1/2 - 2 cups cooked rice.

  9. Ashley says:

    I had this tonight for dinner omg it was amazing would have took a picture but me and my husband were hungry and totally forgot. Thanks for sharing this was so good!

  10. Alisha says:

    Such a lovely recipe, very quick..easy and filling for the whole family. 😋👍

  11. Melissa M says:

    I can't wait to make this but I want to add a protein. Do you think some shredded chicken would be ok to add?

  12. Cyd says:

    Shredded chicken would be great in these burritos.

  13. Carol F says:

    These are amazing. Best I've ever tasted. We love them. The cilantro, which I wasn't sure about, adds a very necessary freshness to the dish. Well Done !

  14. Cyd says:

    Hi Carol. We are so glad you like these burritos. They are one of our favorites!

  15. Carol Claycomb says:

    Making today for some families. How would they reheat?

  17. Cyd Adamson says:

    These can easily be reheated in the microwave.

  18. Stephanie says:

    Can you use pintos if you don’t have black beans on hand?

  19. Momma Cyd says:

    Sure, Pinto beans work great too. This is one of those recipes that you can adapt to what ingredients you have on hand. Have a great week.
