Give the gift of beans: sweetly wrapped burritos tied with pretty, edible ribbon.
Yield: 6 servings
Bring a medium pot of water to a boil, and dip the green onions and leeks in quickly with tongs. Let them cool on a plate.
In a large skillet, heat the vegetable oil over medium heat. Add the tomato, onion, green chilies, garlic powder, and salt to the skillet, and cook until the onions begin to brown, about 5 minutes.
Add the mashed beans and cheese, mix well.
Wrap the tortillas in aluminum foil and heat in the oven for 10 minutes.
Remove the tortillas from the oven. Spoon a scoop of the bean mixture in the center of the tortilla and wrap. Fold the horizontal sides in toward each other, and roll the burrito up toward you.
