These burritos are my 8 year old sons specialty these days. He gets excited if you say you are hungry because it means he can go cook a burrito for you. They are quick and filling and cheap which is nice in a house full of growing boys.
In this picture you will notice our morning oatmeal coming to a boil next to his pan. That’s because he wanted burritos for breakfast instead! He’s a funny boy but he’s turning into a great cook.
The beans we use are most often the ones I have soaked, sprouted and slow cooked so the nutrition is phenomenal. I like to mash them in a hot pan and add some of my home mixed taco seasoning and garlic powder. I add water if it’s too dry and keep smashing until they are the consistency I want. I also like to sautee onions in them sometimes. I have a recipe for them in my Whole Foods Binder along with a tutorial on how to sprout the beans.
He uses corn tortillas because he is sensitive to wheat. We get awesome tortillas from Bountiful Baskets. (Not to mention fresh tasty fruits and vegetables.)
Here is his process:
1. Spread homemade refried beans on a corn tortilla.
2. Roll up the tortilla.
3. Fry in a small amount of coconut oil until crisp.
4. Dip in salsa and enjoy!
Talk about simple. It’s awesomely simple. And cheap. And filling. These are things I highly value these days.
