       Title: BEAN AND TVP® BURRITOS
  Categories: Vegetarian, Tex-mex, Main dish
       Yield: 10 servings
  
      10 lg (10") tortillas or chapatis
       1 c  Dried pinto beans, soaked
            Overnight in 3 cups water
       1    Bay leaf
       3    Cloves garlic, minced
     1/2 c  TVP® granules or flakes
     1/2 c  (less 1 T.) hot water
       2 ts Chili powder
       1 ts Cumin
       1 ts Salt
     1/2 ts Oregano
       1 tb Olive oil
       1 c  Onion, chopped
  
    Drain, rinse and cook the beans until tender (70-90
   minutes) in 3 cups of water with the bay leaf and
   garlic.
   
    Drain the beans, but reserve the liquid in case it is
   needed later to thin the filling mixture.
   
    Combine the TVP®, hot water, hot bean liquid, chili
   powder, cumin, salt and oregano.
   
    Saute the onion in the olive oil in a good sized
   skilled until softened.
   
    Add the seasoned TVP® and cook a few minutes more.
   Stir in the cooked beans, then transfer mixture to a
   food processor or blender and mash to a fairly smooth
   textured filling, adding a little of the bean liquid
   if mixture is too thick. Taste and add a little hot
   sauce if desired. If done in a blender, you may need
   to do it in two batches, then mix the batches together.
   
    To assemble: heat a griddle or skillet until a few
   drops of water dance on the surface. Dry fry each
   tortilla on both sides until the surface of the
   tortilla begins to bubble and brown slightly. Keep
   them warm in a thick towel. When all are heated, place
   about 1/3 cup of filling down one side of a tortilla
   and roll up. You may wish to enclose or serve with
   side dishes of shredded lettuce, grated soy cheese,
   salsa sauce or sliced avocados.
   
    Burritos may be made ahead, kept wrapped, and baked
   before serving. Unwrap, place on cookie sheet, bursh
   tops lightly with oil if desired and bake at 350
   degrees about 20 minutes.
