What do you stuff em with? Best beans? Perfect Smashed Beans recipe?

I'm becoming a fan of Burrito Jack's sweet potato mashed, guac, smashed beans, black beans, rice, 3 types of salsa, lettus, peppers, onion, tomato, green onion, chillies, and hot sauce.

Mmmm.

I want to start making them at home, so what bean fillings or smashed bean recipes do you recommend? Or any start to finish burrito recipes you endorse?

I don't tend to smash my beans. My favorite lately is pinto beans (spiced w/garlic, cumin, paprika, and nooch), sauteed onions, mushrooms, peppers, corn, edamame, guac, salsa of all kinds, Secret Aardvark, and a smidge of tofutti cream cheese. MM.

I just cheat and use canned black beans, cook them down n' smoosh 'em up. Then I add my favorite roasted veggies, home made mexi-rice and a spoonful of salsa.

my old standby is black beans, white rice, mixed salad greens & that green el pato sauce (I call it duck sauce)

and a recent favorite is black beans, white rice, yellow squash, green pepper, corn, duck sauce, cashew cheese + lemon pepper.

I'm also a big fan of the black bean and sweet potato combination. I also add fried plantains, red onions and bbq sauce to it!

I do either black beans seasoned with s and p, chili powder, cumin, or refried black/pinto beans. When we could get burritos from Taco Del Sol, we'd always get black beans and refried beans. I fill mine with the beans, rice, tomato, lettuce, guac, salsa, hot sauce.

we always make kinda a mish-mash mexi-rice mix to stuff our burritos with. brown rice mixed with black beans, sauteed pepeprs and onions, spices (oregano, cumin, chipotle, smoked paprika, chili powder), salsa verde, scallions, fire-roasted tomatoes, jalapenos, and spicy tvp. we make a cheezy sauce to put on top of the rice mix and guacamole as well. so yum!

I love smashed beans, brown rice, guac, cilantro, salsa, spinach.

I use an adaptation of a recipe someone (i forget who, sadly!) posted years ago in teen room on old PPK for smashed/refried beans, I like it but have never tried any other recipes:

2 cans black, pinto, or kidney beans (or any combo thereof), drained and rinsed
1 onion, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp paprika
2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp dried oregano
cayenne pepper to taste
1 tablespoon olive oil
water, as needed

Heat the oil up in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and saute until translucent. Add garlic. Stir in the beans and spices, then pour in 1/2-1 cup water (enough to almost cover the beans) and bring to a boil. Let simmer for about 10 minutes covered, then remove the lid and simmer until liquid is gone. Mash and enjoy. I also add some hot sauce to this!

I'd like to try making burritos with smoked tofu, black beans, rice, cilantro, guac, and spinach. My favorite burrito ever is from a burrito joint about 15 minutes away and it has smoked tofu in it.

Burritos forking rock.

I have discovered that no matter what I stuff them with, my absolute favorite for topping is cilantro sour cream sauce from V'Con (I think). One thing I have always missed is sour cream, but this stuff is, dare I say, even better. Loooove it!!!

Oooh I need to try this. Why haven't I? I usually stuff with beans and/or taco meat, guac, salsa, lettuce, better than sour cream, and more guac. I love that stuff.

My omni BF made a ton of burritos about a month ago and still has a bunch in the freezer so he can just grab one while he's studying. I keep meaning to do the same. Love the ideas you guys have for combos--smoked tofu, plantains, sweet potatoes. Yuuuuum! I usually keep it pretty traditional...black beans, pico de gallo, rice and a bunch of avocado. I want to make potato burritos and maybe breakfast burritos with scrambled tofu.

Chris makes really awesome refried beans. I've tried to drag the recipe out of him, but he just eyeballs everything and can't remember amounts. I know he uses coconut oil to fry them and adds chipotle powder that gives them a nice subtle smoky flavor. The next time he makes them I'm going to hover and take notes.

My basic burrito is beans, rice, cilantro, onions, lettuce tomato green taco sauce and better than sour cream. Sometimes I get fancy and fry up some soy curls with peppers and onions and throw those in too.

Oh man, I should whip up some tortillas and do this. Burritos whenever I want?? Hells yeah!

Have any of you made your own tortillas? I haven't, but I want to. I do have some recipes lying around.

Yup, they tasted so much better than store bought ditto, but they came out a little bit too small. I used this recipe: http://vegweb.com/index.php?topic=27073.0

I love potato burritos. Oof. When I have the time/motivation, I like to cook up some potatoes with onions and garlic, then add some cumin and either chopped up canned chipotle peppers (and adobo sauce,) or chipotle powder. Pair this with refried (I am a sucker for pinto) beans, fresh salsa, avocado, cilantro, and sometimes but not always a bit of rice, whoamygod. Burrito heaven.

Re: homemade tortillas. Sometimes I make them and they are so, so tasty, but I have a hard time making them big enough to adequately encase burrito fillings. I think it may be a matter of getting them really thin . . .

my tortillas always come out too thick. Well, by always I mean the 1-2 times I've made them. It's that rolling out thing again...
