These are wonderful. I did make a couple of changes based on previous reviews. First, I added some chopped onion to the garlic and also 1/8 tsp grd. cumin. Instead of 1/3 c. water I added 1 8oz. can no salt added tomato sauce and only about 1/4 c. water. My husband, who is not typically fond of bean burritos loved them so much that he decided to take leftovers for lunch the next day. It was a home run!!

We have had these many times over the years.  Always great.  Sometimes I add some diced avocado.

I made this last night and my husband and I were totally amazed. We used the bean mixture as a quesadilla filling and put the green onion, tomato and cheese on top and then grilled in the quesadilla maker. Served with sour cream, quacamole and salsa with a side of spanish rice. My husband is having the leftovers for lunch today.

My husband and I absolutely love this dish! We make it almost every other week. The receipe is great, but we always add Goya yellow rice and make grilled red oninon and green peppers mixed with a pinch of salt and fresh squeezed lime. Super yummy! Highly recommend.

Love it! My husband and I think they are the best homemade bean burritos we have ever had! The smokey flavor and the nutty flavor from the the toasted garlic make these far superior to canned refried beans.YUMMMM

This recipe has become a regular in our dinner repertoire! We've made it for guests and everyone enjoys it. The mashed bean concoction with chili powder is the novel aspect of this recipe and turns out delicious. Often we'll saute some chicken breasts / thighs to add to the burrito.
