Mexican Bean Burritos

Submitted by: MADEMCHE


Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    2 cups dried pinto beans
    8 cups water 1/2 to 1 cup bean cooking liquid
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1 small onion
    1 tsp red chili flakes
    1 tsp ground cumin
    salt (optional)
    2 chopped tomatoes
    1 chopped bunch green onions
    2 cups shredded lettuce
    1 cup shredded soy cheese (optional)
    Assorted Mexican salsas
    6 large or 12 small whole wheat flour or corn tortillas (not included in info - had mine as a salad

Directions

Place the beans in a large pot with the water. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat slightly so they don't boil over, and cook until tender, 3 to 4 hours. (This step can also be done in a slow cooker. Cook on high for 8-10 hours.) Drain, reserving the cooking liquid.

Mash the beans with a hand masher or portable electric beater. Add some bean cooking liquid after mashing and mix until the beans are a soft, moist consistency. Saute the onion, garlic, chili flakes, cumin, and salt if using in oil. Add to the beans for flavour.

Place all the ingredients in bowls, except the tortillas. Let each person make their own burrito by layering on the ingredients of their choice. For instance, take a tortilla, spread a line of beans down the center of the tortilla, then add some tomatoes, onions and lettuce. Spoon a little of your favorite salsa over all of this, roll up the tortilla and, either place on a plate and eat it using a fork or pick it up and eat it using your fingers.
