pinto bean burrito recipe

Frijoles a la charra

From Lindsey F.

Heat 6 cans of pinto beans with half a can of water over medium high heat, until hot. (It’s ok if it boils.) Add a sprinkle of dried cilantro and a can of tomatoes with green chilies.  Stir and serve with tortillas or corn bread.


If I was a bean eater I would try this because it sounds so good and easy. Super inexpensive too. I will definitely give this to my daughter-in-law who loves beans.

    I make all of my beans- pintos, kidney, black beans in my crockpot. I just rinse the beans, put them in the crockpot, and add a lot of water. Cook overnight and they are ready in about ten to twelve hours.

    I am making black bean soup tonight from beans I cooked in my crockpot on Saturday.

    Just found your blog. This bean soup one of our favoritse in my family. However we like to add chopped bacon or ham. Also, I have heard of some people adding a can of their favorite beer. This is also good with spanish rice. I add the spanish rice to the bowl and bean right on top.

    Beans and rice! My husband is from Louisiana and that is a staple for their diet. I was raised in Florida, so a bit different for me. I make burritos with a little ground beef, a can of pinto beans, and a can of enchilada sauce. Heat all of that, then fill a tortilla and wrap. Lay all in a pan, cover with all of the mixture you have left and top with cheddar cheese and back. My husband loves it, and I love any Mexican food, so we have this quite a bit.
