New Mexican Burritos
From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. Use anasazi or pinto beans, either freshly cooked or use good quality canned ones.
2 cups freshly cooked or canned pinto beans, drained
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mash the beans with the salt and chopped garlic. In a skillet heat the bacon drippings or oil or butter. Fry the mashed bean mixture several minutes. In meantime, wrap the tortillas in a cloth napkin or towel and warm in microwave for about 1 minute. Spoon the hot bean mixture down the center of each warm tortilla and then top with the sliced green onions and shredded cheese. Roll and place on a baking sheet and bake about 10 - 12 minutes to melt the cheese. To serve, place roughly torn romaine on serving plates and top with the burritos. Serve with sauces as desired. To eat, pick up a burrito with your hand and hold your little finger on the bottom of the cylinder. Take a bite out of the top of the cyilinder and then spoon in chili sauce as you take each bite, as desired!
