for the beans:

  • 1 30 ounce can refried beans
  • 1/4 cup Crisco shortening
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 teaspoon taco seasoning

for assembling:

  • 12 uncooked soft taco size flour tortillas
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese


  • Add the beans, shortening, and milk to a medium sauce pan and heat over medium heat, stirring frequently, until smooth. Stir in the cheddar cheese and taco seasoning.
  • Cook the flour tortillas according to the package directions. Keep warm in a towel until ready to use.
  • To assemble the burritos, add 1/3 cup of beans to the center of a tortilla, then sprinkle with 2 tablespoons cheddar cheese. Fold in the edges of the tortilla toward the center, then roll up, tucking in all of the filling.
  • To refrigerate or freeze for later, wrap each burrito in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for up to a week, or place in a freezer-safe container and freeze for up to six months. When ready to reheat, unwrap the plastic wrap, wrap the burrito in a paper towel, and microwave for 1-2 minutes, until heated through.
