Recipe: Re-fried Beans and Potato Burritos

I just made this (yes an original recipe thought up on the fly) and it was so good. My mother wolfed hers down before I was done with mine. Sorry I don’t have a picture. They didn’t last long enough to take one.

  • 4 burrito sized flour tortillas
  • 4 medium potatoes, chopped up into cubes between 3/8″ to 1/2″ [so they cook evenly, or smaller if you like]
  • 1 16 ounce can of re-fried beans
  • 4-6 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 8 tablespoons shredded cheese [your choice]
  • 8 tablespoons sauce [your choice]
  • pinch of salt
  • pinch of white pepper


  1. Wash and cube the potatoes [3/8″ to 1/2″ in size]
  2. Heat a large skillet and add 2 to 3 tablespoons of olive oil.
  3. Drop the cubed potatoes into the pan, stir occasionally.
  4. Add the salt and pepper.
  5. After 5 minutes on the heat add the remaining olive oil. Continue to stir occasionally. Continue cooking until they are golden brown. Then remove from the heat.
  6. Wrap the tortillas in a paper towel and microwave for one minute.
  7. Put the potatoes in a microwave safe dish and heat in the microwave for 45 seconds [to make sure they are tender inside].
  8. Heat the re-fried beans in a pan on the stove.
  9. Add the potatoes to the re-fried beans in the pan and mix thoroughly.
  10. Divide mixture evenly across the center of each of the four tortillas.
  11. Sprinkle two tablespoons of shredded cheese on top of the mixture centered on each tortilla.
  12. Pour two tablespoons of sauce on top of the cheese.
  13. Fold into a burrito [I roll it like an enchilada and fold the ends in] and serve.
