Vegetarian Burrito Bites

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large onion diced
  • 1 red bell pepper diced
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 15 ounces canned pinto beans rinsed and drained
  • 4 ounces Rio Luna diced green chiles
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar jack cheese
  • Coarse kosher salt
  • 8-10 large flour tortillas

Spicy Guacamole

  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 1/4 cup diced onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped Rio Luna nacho sliced jalapeños
  • 1/2 a roma tomato seeds removed, diced
  • Juice of one lime
  • Coarse kosher salt
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes optional
  • Sour cream optional
  • Salsa optional


  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and bell pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 5-7 minutes. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, for one more minute. Remove from heat.
  • In a large bowl, combine onion mixture, pinto beans, diced green chiles, cheese, and salt to taste.
  • If your tortillas are cold, you may want to warm them for 30 seconds in the microwave to make them more pliable. Lay one tortilla out on a clean work surface and cut into four equal triangles. Put a small spoonful of filling on each triangle. Starting from the pointy end, fold up, then fold both sides in and continue rolling tightly into a burrito. Lay seam side down on a lightly greased baking sheet. You may need to press down gently on each burrito to get it to stay put on it’s seam. Continue with the remaining tortillas and filling.
  • Bake the burritos at 350ºF for 12-14 minutes, until crisp and lightly browned.
  • Meanwhile, make the guacamole by mashing the avocado in a medium sized bowl. Add the onion, jalapeños, tomato, lime juice, salt, cilantro, and red pepper flakes if using. Stir to combine.
  • Serve the burritos warm with bowls of spicy guacamole, sour cream, and salsa for dipping if desired.
