  • Refried beans from two pounds of beans
  • 12 large flour tortillas
  • 8 oz. shredded soy cheese
  • 1 large onion, chopped fine
  • chopped peppers as desired


All ingredients besides the beans and tortillas should be considered optional. Decide what you like in your burritos and add it in.

Get the tortilla wraps to room temperature and separate them. Make sure they can be folded without cracking; if this is a problem it may help to warm them in a microwave a bit.

For each burrito:

Lay one tortilla on your working surface. Spoon exactly one twelfth of the bean mixture onto the center of the tortilla in a roughly rectangular blob. Sprinkle some soy cheese & onion on the bean mixture.

Fold in the tortilla to form the two ends of the burrito. Fold one of the side flaps over the top and around the other side of the bean mix; you'll almost tuck it in under the bean mix so as to force the burrito into a round shape. Fold the other side over. [If you can't understand what to do from these instructions don't sweat it too much; as long as you completely enclose the filling you're okay, and it's not hard to figure out your own folding method.] Set the burrito aside with these folded sides on the bottom.

These freeze quite nicely. Two of these large ones (or one with side dishes) makes a meal. You could of course make smaller ones using the smaller wraps, though I'm not sure how many you'll get.
