Bean and Cheese Burritos

I decided to come up with my version of a fast food bean Burrito, because Susie loves them so much. Not to mention it's not a bad idea for me to get my kids to eat more beans!

1 1/4 c. dry pinto beans
3 c. water
1 tbsp. butter
1 sm. onion, chopped
1 hot pepper, seeded & chopped (add if you like)
1 clove garlic, chopped finely (add if you like)
1 (8 oz.) can tomato sauce
10 (8") flour tortillas
1 c. (4 oz.) cheese, cut up
Rinse pinto beans. In a large saucepan combine beans and water. Cover and bring to a boil. Turn heat down and simmer, covered, for 2 1/2-3 hours until beans are soft. Do not pour off water. Turn heat off.

Mash beans well in pan. In a small saucepan melt butter. Add onion, hot pepper and garlic; cook for about 3 minutes or until onion is clear. Add tomato sauce and stir. Bring to a boil and turn off heat. Pour half of the tomato sauce mixture into the beans and stir well.

Heat tortillas. Put 1/3 cup of beans in center of each tortilla. Top with tomato sauce and cheese. Fold and bake at 300 degrees for 10 minutes. Makes 10 burritos.
