  • ½ tablespoon Butter / Olive oil
  • ½ Onion chopped
  • 15 oz ( 1 can) Black beans
  • ½ teaspoon Red chile powder
  • Salt (to taste)
  • 1 cup Mexican cheese blend
  • 1 cup Enchilada sauce
  • 2 Tortillas (Homemade or store bought)

For the rice

  • ¾ cup Raw rice
  • 1 Green chile / Serrano / Jalapeno chopped
  • 2 tablespoon Cilantro / Coriander leaves chopped
  • 1 tablespoon Butter / Olive oil
  • 2 teaspoon Lemon juice


Step I

  • Prepare the dough for tortillas and keep it aside for 30 minutes. You can also use store bough tortillas.
  • In a pan, add butter or oil. Add raw rice and saute till it develops some color, about 3 to 4 minutes on medium heat. This step will impart a nutty flavor to the cooked rice.
  • Now add in the green chillis, cilantro and mix. Add the water as per package instructions (for rice) and cook the rice.
  • Add in the lemon juice and mix. Keep this aside.

Step II

  • Meanwhile, heat ½ tablespoon of butter or oil in pan. Add onion, pinch of salt and saute till it becomes translucent.
  • Add in the black beans and red chilli powder. drizzle water and saute it for 2 to 3 minutes.

Step III

  • Preheat the oven to 350 deg. F and then put it on broil mode.

Step IV

  • Divide the tortillas dough into two equal parts. Using a rolling pin, roll them as big as the size of your non-stick pan / tava / griddle. If using store bought tortillas, its alaways good to heat it once on griddle.
  • Cook the tortilla on one side or until underside develops light golden color and the surface starts to bubble.
  • Then flip and cook on the other side. Repeat this for the remaining tortilla.

Step V

  • Place two tortillas in two separate round baking pans.
  • Add in the rice prepared at the center followed by the black beans mixture. Now pour the sauce, Mexican cheese blend. Roll it up and place it fold side down.
  • Pour the remaining enchilada sauce on top of the tortillas. Sprinkle the remaining cheese.
  • Broil in the oven for about 3 to 5 minutes or until the cheese melts and sauce bubbles.
  • Remove the burritos from the oven, add sour cream, salsa, lettuce, guacamole if desired.
  • Enchilada Style Burrito is now ready. Serve hot and enjoy.


  • Also use meat of your choice if desired.
  • You can use store bought tortillas for the recipe.
  • You can also substitute the rice and black beans by one single black beans rice.
  • I have used jasmine rice for this recipe. Use any rice of your choice but see that you saute it first to get the nutty flavor.
  • I have used mexican cheese blend that consists of shredded Cheddar, Monterey Jack, Asadero, Queso Blanco. You can use any one cheese or a mixture of all.
  • You can use substitute black beans with pinto beans.
  • Nicely drain and wash the canned black beans to reduce the sodium.
  • If using dried black beans :
  1. Soak the black beans in water for 3 hours adding little baking soda and drain them. Adding soda makes it cook faster.
  2. Cook the black beans in pan or pressure cooker for one whistle. Add salt while cooking.
