I love the burrito's but did add chopped lettuce, a little grated cheese and a dab of salsa!

AWFUL! Am I the only one that thinks American Cheese isn't a real cheese? Especially not one that is used in mexican dishes. Once I took the cheese out of it and added onion, bell pepper, cumin, corriander, chili powder, garlic, black olives, black beans, chopped tomato and some avacado I had my standard burrito which my 6 year old said was WAY better...betterer a million T-rexes big than this one.

This is one thing my son and I definitely agree on. I love refried beans and I love even more that my son will eat them. I left out the sour cream, hot sauce & peppers for his sake, but it was still good. Sometimes when I don't have shredded cheddar, I just use a slice of Kraft singles and it works out just fine. Usually he can't tell the difference. Thanks for a simple but kid friendly recipe Brooke.

This recipe was very good. However, I made the following adjustment to it. First, I warmed up the refried beans and added a tbs of salsa, garlic powder and 1/4 of pinto beans. I also sauteed onions and green peppers and cut up tomatoes. Then I piled up the burritos as follow... beans, sauteed onions and green peppers, tomatoes, shredded cheddar cheese, sour cream and salsa. Wrap up the burrito and placed them on a greased pan for about 12minutes. My family loved these burritos. I served them with spanish rice. This was so good, my family requested it again the next night.

No, not the "best" but I thought they were fairly good and extra points for being super easy, although heating everything in the microwave would be even easier. I slopped some extra sour cream and taco sauce on top. My one big complaint that no one has mentioned: I doubled the filling because I wanted to make two. And that was just barely enough to fill a 10" tortilla. I even double-checked the recipe that it hadn't been meant for a smaller one. I cannot imagine 1/4 cup beans and slice of cheese even remotely matching a 10" tortilla, unless you just enjoy eating tortillas.

Easy but needed more spices for me. Next time I might add some salsa mixture or new spices.
