Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom


Grilled Bean and Cheese Burritos

I have a handful of "standby" meals for nights when I just don't feel like cooking.  (Quesadillas, burritos and eggs to just name a few.)  These Bean and Cheese Burritos are a great option for nights like this.  Something about the crispy, flaky outside and ooey-gooey inside that makes the burritos seem yummier.

To grill the Burritos, I used my George Forman grill, but you could use a grill pan, waffle iron or regular frying pan for a similar effect.

To make these Grilled Burritos you need:

  • Large burrito size tortillas
  • Oil
  • Burrito filling of your choice (refried beans, chicken, rice, regular beans, corn, salsa, etc...)

For our burritos, I just used refried beans, cheese and Taco Bell sauce.

Spread your burrito filling down the middle of the tortilla and fold.  Rub just a touch of oil on the top of the burrito and place it on your grilling device. (GF grill, waffle iron or pan.)  Cook for about 5 minutes or until the top of the burrito is golden brown.

Serve with your sour cream/salsa/guacamole and enjoy! Careful, it's hot!
