  • Spoon about 3 tablespoons of the bean mixture onto the center of a tortilla and smooth into a thin layer. Sprinkle with a large pinch of shredded cheese and roll tightly. Repeat with remaining bean mixture, tortillas, and cheese.

  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Place a few burritos, seam-side down, into the skillet. Cook, turning every 30 seconds, until golden and crispy on all sides, 5 to 8 minutes. Remove to a plate and repeat with remaining burritos.

Cook's Note:

You can use Cheddar cheese if you'd like.
