These simple Southwestern Bean Burritos came to me as I gulped down a spoonful of Busch baked beans.  I told Zo, "You know babe for canned beans these sure are tasty, I wonder if anyone has made a baked bean burrito."  Zo replied, "I bought them because your mom always buys them and I think they could be good in a burrito."  So a few months later when Zo said, "What's for dinner?" I thought, hey lets try those baked bean burritos.  Little did I know that I would end up eating not only one of the burritos we made but the rest of the filling!  The sweet with a little spicy hits just the right chord for me, throw in the cheese and I turn into a bona fide addict licking the bottom of a sauce pan!  Yep I like these that much!  Enjoy!

1 16 oz can Busch baked beans (or our homemade baked beans)
1/4 cup grilled red green onions (chopped)
2 grilled green onions (chopped)
3/4 cup chipotle cheddar (shredded)
1 tbsp fresh cilantro (chopped)
fresh crack pepper to taste
4 8 in uncooked tortillas

Sour Cream Sauce
1/3 cup sour cream
1/2 limes juice freshly squeezed
2 tbsp fresh cilantro (chopped)

1 avocado sliced
1/8 tsp cumin
1/2 limes juice freshly squeezed over them

Stir together all items in a small bowl and sit to the side keeping cool until ready to use.

After slicing avocado, drizzle lime juice over the slices and then sprinkle with cumin.  Cover and sit to side until ready to use.

Brush green and red onions with a little olive oil and grill 3-4 minutes over medium low heat before chopping.

Drain beans of excess liquid then pour into a 2 qt sauce pan.  Mash 3/4 of the beans with a potato masher cover and heat over low heat for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Add onions and pepper, cover and continuing to heat and stir for 3-4 minutes.  Stir in cheese and cilantro, cover and continue to heat for another 4-5 minutes.

Preheat a nonstick skillet over medium heat.  Fill each tortilla with 1/4 of the bean mixture and fold edges in to form a burrito.  Add burritos fold side down to the skillet and crisp each side of the burrito for 2-3 minutes.  Once all sides are nice and crisped lay slices of avocado over the burritos and drizzle with sauce.  Enjoy!
