Reviews for Tasty Burritos
"Excellent recipe! Love how they freeze, so I made a double batch and have them ready to heat. Everyone in the family loved them too."
"My family loved these. I thought they were even better the next day. I reheated in the oven for an even crispier tortilla. You could add lots of things to it if you wanted but really tasty as written."
"This is now a family favorite!! Easy to fry up on the stove. I think I'll try adding black olives into the mix next time."
"Do you add the water with the taco seasoning?"
"These were really delicious and quick to make. If I can make something in under 30 min. that's "fast food" to me. So much healthier than the store bought. I used homemade taco seasoning and coconut oil for sauteing (sorry canola oil is NOT the healthy oil we're led to believe). The canned refried beans made the mixture somewhat runny so it would depend on the brand one uses for this recipe. Might consider adding onions next time (as another reviewer mentioned) as well as jalapenos for more spice.~No, I do not add any water to the mixture"
"I make these all the time and add diced onion."
"I make these also and bake with a little cheese on top. Also put the beans in the blender or processor first. A long time favorite. Also use same filling for hard shell tacos that we wrap in a soft shell. Ground turkey and low fat cheese is one of my options."
"Really good and fast. Kids didn't even notice the beans."
"Very tasty. I agree with some of the other reviewers that smaller tortillas would be better, and they need to be browned over medium rather than medium-high heat."
"My husband LOVES these burritos. Plus, they're so easy to make. I typically make a double batch of the ground beef and refried beans and put the extra in the fridge . Then, it only takes a few minutes to put together and fry up a burrito or two as a snack later on in the week."
