Childhood memories of crispy bean and cheese burritos
I have fond childhood memories of my mother going to Taco Time and coming back with crispy burritos for my brother, sister, and I. Long and crispy and wrapped in that crispy paper bag with unsealed open ends on both sides…it was sooooooo good. I can hear myself crunching into it now.
Recently I find myself wanting to snack on such tasty Tex-Mex treats and even pass on the tradition to my daughter.
But alas, in Malaysia, Mexican fast food joints are not so common. Best to try my hand at making crispy bean and cheese burritos at home.
It’s fairly easy to throw together: puree the beans with the spices, stir in the cheese, wrap in a tortilla and toast. Voila! Crispy, bean and cheese burritos galore!
These are perfect as a snack, party food, or even a meal for both adults and kids. Make ahead of time and freeze like me, or cook it all up at once-the choice is yours. Serve with your favorite dipping sauces and you’re set!
