Lumpe Burritos

I LOVED these burritos! This recipe came from the cookbook we got when we joined our CSA a few years ago.

1 lb. new potatoes
1 T olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 bell pepper, chopped
1/2 tspn. ground cumin
1/2 tspn. salt
pepper to taste
2 T fresh cilantro
8-10 large flour tortillas
1 1/2 c. refried beans
1 1/2 c. grated cheese (Cheddar, Jack or Jalapeno Jack)
Garnish with tomatoes and sour cream

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Wash potatoes, cut into large cubes, cover with water in a large pot and boil until tender, but firm.

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat and saute the onion and pepper until just tender.

When the potatoes are done, drain well and add to onion mixture.

Sprinkle with cumin, salt and pepper. Continue to cook until potatoes begin to brown.

Remove from heat and add cilantro.

To assemble burritos:
Lay out a tortilla.

Place 2 to 3 tspns. on refried beans down the center of the tortilla.

Top with a generous helping of potatoes.

Sprinkle with 2 to 3 tbspn. cheese and roll up as tightly as you can.

Place in an ungreased 9 x 13-inch baking dish.

Continue assembling burritos until you have run out of filling. Line burritos up in baking dish as you make them.

Bake for 20 minutes.

Serve with tomatoes and sour cream.

What did the family think? Hubby liked them, but he needs meat in his diet and these don’t make the cut. I thought they were super yummy and I highly recommend them.
