Well, there are about a million ways of making burritos. I feel like everyone has their very specific way of making them. This is simply my favorite.
First off, it's all about the tortilla! If you aren't going to make your own from scratch the next best thing is to buy my favorite tortillas, which are uncooked tortillas! The kind I buy are made by torillaland. You can get them at some Whole Foods stores or here on amazon. They are so simple, all you have to do is heat them up in a frying pan, which you would probably do with a cooked one anyway right?
Second, the beans. If you don't have time to soak some beans overnight, it's ok to use canned. BUT only if you jazz them up! In a medium pot, I melt a pad of butter and add 1/2 diced onion and a pinch of salt. Saute for a few minutes until shiny and slightly soft. Drain and rinse the beans and add them to the pot. Cook until they are warm. Much tastier : )
