Bean Burritos

Makes 6 burritos


  • 1 (14 ounce) can tomato sauce
  • Canola Oil
  • 3 dried ancho chiles, stems removed
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seed
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 6 tortillas
  • 1 (14 ounce) can refried beans
  • Mexican cheese (optional)
1.  Heat oven to 350 degrees F.  Prepare the sauce:  Pour tomato sauce into a small sauce pan over medium heat.  Reduce to a simmer.  In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons canola oil over medium-high heat.  Saute chiles 2-4 minutes, blackening the skins.  Add to a food processor fitted with blade attachment.  Add oregano, cumin seed, and garlic salt.  Process for about 1 minute.  Add 1 tablespoon of spice mixture to simmering tomato sauce.  Add cilantro.  Stir occasionally until ready to serve.  Keep remaining spice mixture in the fridge,  and use for another time.

2.  Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.  Set a side.  
Prepare burritos:  Add a heaping tablespoon of beans to the center of each tortilla.  Add about a tablespoon of sauce to each burrito.  Top with some mexican cheese (optional).   Enclose burrito using a toothpick.
In a large skillet heat 1/4 cup canola oil over medium-high heat.  Working in batches, fry burritos 15 seconds per side.  Transfer to baking sheet.  Bake in the oven for 5 minutes.  

3.  Serve your boyfriend.  Remove toothpicks and top with some sauce for a finishing touch.
