6 servings


15 minutes

total time


16 ounce can refried beans (, pinto or black)

1 Tablespoon salsa

1/2 teaspoon chili powder

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon ground cumin

1/2 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese (, or cheddar cheese)

6 medium flour tortillas

salsa (, for dipping)


Add the refried beans, salsa, chili powder, garlic powder and cumin to a mixing bowl and stir until smooth.

Spoon about three tablespoons of the bean mixture onto the center of a flour tortilla and smooth into a thin layer.

Sprinkle with a small handful of shredded cheese. Roll tightly. Repeat with remaining tortillas.

Heat 1-2 tablespoons of oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Place a few burritos, seam side down, into the pan.

Turn them every 30 seconds or so as they cook until they are golden and crispy on all sides.

Serve warm, with homemade five-minute salsa and guacamole, for dipping.


Air Fryer Instructions:

Preheat air fryer to 370 degrees. Spray the burritos with oil and add a few at a time to the air fryer. Cook for 6 minutes, rotate and cook for a few more minutes until crispy on all sides.
