For the Burritos:

For Serving:


  • In a small saucepan, combine the refried beans, salsa, chili powder, cumin, smoked paprika, garlic powder, and salt. Heat over medium-low, stirring occasionally, until beans are warm. Remove from heat.
  • Place a tortilla on a work surface. Spread 1/3 cup of beans in the center of the tortilla. Top with 1/4 cup shredded cheese.
  • Fold the sides, 1 to 2 inches inwards. This will prevent the filling from falling out of the bottom of your burrito as you eat it. Next, fold the bottom over so it completely covers the filling.
  • Starting with the bottom flap that’s covering the filling, roll the burrito, tucking the flap firmly inwards as you roll to secure the fillings. Continue rolling until your burrito is seam side down.
  • Continue making burritos with remaining ingredients.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Place the burritos seam side down in the pan and heat for a few minutes on each side until the outside is slightly crisp and the burritos are warm. Alternatively, you can wrap the burritos in foil and place them on a baking sheet. Bake at 375 degrees F for 12 to 15 minutes or until they are warm all the way through and slightly crisp on the outside.
  • Serve warm with desired toppings.
