7 Layer Burrito

About This Recipe:

My go to Taco Bell order as a kid at a mall food court was the 7 layer burrito. Since I don’t eat beef, my Taco Bell options were limited, but this burrito for sure hit the spot. This burrito has all of the finer things in life- carbs, cheese, sour cream, and guacamole, and is a cinch to make. You can either use boxed Spanish rice, or make your own with regular white rice and a seasoning packet. If you wanted to make this even simpler, you could also omit the onions and just heat up the refried beans in the microwave. Thanks Taco Bell!

-4 large flour tortillas
-1/2 small onion, finely diced
-8 oz refried beans

3. Lightly warm up each tortilla in a skillet (or microwave for 15 seconds.)
