Fried burritos are what true love is right? What I love about this is you can do whatever you want. Spicy salsa, spicy cheese, black beans, no beans. Serve these with Mexican rice, beans, and a nice dark beer and savor the taste of true love.
SideChef tip: we recommend using the Panasonic 4-in-1 Microwave Oven to make this recipe, click here to find out more.

Author's Notes

For TortillaLand® Fresh Ready to Cook Tortillas:

1. Preheat a non-stick pan to medium heat (440ºF). No butter or oil required.

2. Place tortilla in a pan and cook for 30 seconds until slightly golden and tortilla begins to puff.

3. Turn tortillas over, and cook for an additional 30 seconds. Cook thoroughly before eating. Caution: tortilla will be hot. Enjoy!

Keep refrigerated until ready to use. Do not mix cooked and uncooked tortillas. Try cooking the tortillas on the grill or BBQ - grill tortillas until they have grill marks on both sides.
