Family Sized Bean Burritto

Do you still have some of these? Never fear, foodfection to the rescue!

This is a great recipe if your looking to switch things up a bit with your normal old burritos.  Its a family sized stuffed burrito with tomatoes and melted cheese on top, and its delicious. My husbands favorite part was the tomatoes on top, which surprised me because I usually end up eating his tomato slices off his plate as I’m clearing the dinner dishes off the table.

The filling is pretty interchangeable also, so use this recipe as a base, but you probably couldn’t go to wrong with putting what you like in the middle!

1.) Lay 5 tortillas on a cookie sheet like this.

2.) Spread the beans on the tortillas. Then add the meat filling.

3.) Fold over burritos into a square, and add tomato slices and top with cheese of your choice.

4.) Bake in the oven at 425 degrees for 18-20 minutes and then cut into squares and serve.

*Serves 8

*Note: You can adjust this recipe according to what you have. This recipe calls for burrito sized tortillas, but I only had smaller, whole wheat ones, so I just made two smaller family sized burritos and split the recipe in between both.


tomatoes, thinly sliced
3 c. Diced cooked chicken, or 1 11b or ground beef cooked.
1/2 c. Chopped onion
1/2 Lime
3/4 c Thick and chunky salsa
1 tbsp Taco seasoning mix
1 Garlic clove, pressed
1 1/2 c (16 oz) shredded Colby & Monterrey Jack cheese blend, divided
4 Burrito-size flour tortillas (11″) or 5 small ones
1 can (9 oz) bean dip or these

Additional toppings: olives, sour cream, guacamole, salsa, etc..


Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Thinly slice tomatoes; set aside.  Cook chicken or ground beef with onion.  Add lime juice, salsa, seasoning mix, and garlic. Stir in 1/2 c. of cheese.

Arrange tortillas in an overlapping circular pattern Large Round Stone, covering entire surface of baking stone. (Tortillas will extend off edge of baking stone by 5″). Starting in center, spread bean dip over tortillas, forming a 10×10″ square. Spoon chicken/ meat mixture evenly over bean dip. Fold edges of tortillas up over chicken mixture in an envelope pattern.

Arrange tomato slices in rows over top of burrito. Sprinkle remaining cheese over burrito, covering completely. Bake 18-20 minutes or until cheese is melted and edges are browned. Cut into rectangles, serve with assorted toppings if desired.
