Instructions
  1. Heat the teaspoon of oil in a medium sized, heavy pan.
  2. Add the chopped onion and cook for about 3-4 minutes on medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the onion begins to become transparent. Add the minced garlic and continue cooking for another 1-2 minutes.
  3. Add the refried beans and stir the onions and garlic into them. Heat the mixture.
  4. Incorporate the chili powder and then the cheese, mixing the ingredients thoroughly. Cover and cook 3-4 minutes on medium-low heat.
  5. Add the chopped green chiles and salt (optional) if desired after tasting the mixture, and continue stirring for a few minutes.
  6. Heat the flour shells directly over the stovetop, in the microwave, or in an ungreased pan.
  7. Add 1-2 large spoonfuls of refried bean mixture to each shell, then toppings of your choice and fold the shells.
Recipe Notes

I prefer to heat the shells directly over the flame of a gas stovetop burner, quickly flipping them, for about 45 seconds – 1 minute. If you don’t have a gas burner. Whichever method you use to heat the shells just make sure to keep them from becoming too stiff or they won’t fold properly.
This recipe yields 6 generous burritos.
