You can use any kind of beans and any kind of cheese that you like. I used Anasazi beans and a mixture of cheddar and other cheeses. I think it was called the Mexican Blend or Taco Blend. I bought it already shredded. It is really better to grate your own because they use an anti-caking agent when they package it shredded.

1½ – 2 cups seasoned browned ground beef (about 1 lb raw)
1 – 1½ cups cooked Anasazi beans
8oz shredded cheese
1½ cup cooked brown rice
Homemade Pico de Gallo

Preheat oven to 350. Place rice in the bottom of a casserole dish. Mix beans, rice, and cheese together and place on top of rice. Bake uncovered for 10 minutes and then covered for about 20 minutes or until hot. Serve topped with homemade Pico de Gallo.

I like to make a whole lot of these and freeze some. They are really easy, and making more does not add significant time or work.

1 lbGround beef
1 can Refried beans
1 lb shredded cheese
1 can pico de gallo (I use Herdez brand, but any variety of Rotel works, too)

Brown and drain meat. Keep warm on medium heat add beans and pico and mix thoroughly. Add cheese and remove from heat. Mix thoroughly. Allow to cool. Place mixture in tortillas. Heat, covered, in oven at 350 for 20 to 30 minutes.

You can put the mixture in the refrigerator overnight. Allowing it to cool make sit much easier to work with. I put the burritos I plan to freeze directly into the freezer bag, without baking them. That way they don’t get overcooked when you heat them.
