This is a simple, delicious and frugal recipe to try. Also you can freeze these and use them for lunches or dinner. Maybe add some eggs to them for a quick breakfast.
- A bag of dried pinto beans
- tortilla shells
Rinse the beans and pick out the broken ones. Place them in a crock-pot and cover them with water.
Add garlic, bay leaves and cumin to flavor
Cook on low overnight
Drain some of the water but leave some in and mash the beans with a masher
Scoop beans onto shells and add shredded cheese on top of the beans
Roll the tortillas into burritos
At this point you can choose to freeze them in a freezer bag or cook them
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Place burritos on cookie sheet
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes
My kids loved these and we will have often for our home-school lunches and may also try some breakfast ones :)
