cooking instructions
Prepare all the ingredients for the burritos. Take the unopened package of flour tortillas, punch a few holes in the plastic wrapping and heat in a microwave until soft, about 1 ½ minutes. Alternatively, place unwrapped tortillas in foil and heat in the oven at 180°C for 15 minutes until soft. To assemble, spoon beans down the centre of the hot tortilla. Sprinkle with cheese and green onions, dot with guacamole, sour cream and a drizzle of salsa or chilli sauce. Fold up the bottom of the tortilla, then fold the sides over the filling to form a packet that is closed on the bottom and open at the top. You can either make a tray of burritos to serve or set out the ingredients and hot tortillas on the table and let each person make their own.

serves 6
advance preparation
Burritos can be assembled in advance if desired, before adding guacamole, sour cream or salsa/chilli sauce. Fold in both ends, roll up, wrap in foil and refrigerate. Reheat at 180°C for 20 minutes. Unwrap foil to serve, with the guacamole, sour cream and salsa or chilli sauce on the side for dipping.
variations
For a meat burrito, use smokin’ chilli mullumbimby (recipe in main meals, chillis and stews) with mexican pot beans as a filling. For a chicken burrito, use red chicken chilli (recipe also in main meal section, chillis and stews) with mexican pot beans.
serving idea
Have a burrito night by setting out chillis (see variations, above), beans, condiments and plenty of hot flour tortillas. Everyone rolls their own.

Meaning “little burro” in Spanish, a burrito is a large flour tortilla wrapped around a filling and traditionally eaten by hand. Don’t get carried away trying to put excess filling in the tortilla…the little burro might spill its load in your lap.
