Mini burritos and a big bowl of picante sauce for Super Bowl Sunday

Being a part of Foodbuzz is so much fun! As a participant in the Tastemaker program, I have the opportunity to try delicious food products. I was thrilled when they asked if I'd like to make a Super Bowl Sunday recipe using Pace Picante sauce. I love Pace!

Here are some fun facts: Picante sauce is smoother than salsa, making it a better choice for cooking. David Pace created picante sauce in 1947 for the specific purpose of adding delicious flavor and kick to his meals, and Pace Picante sauce is still made today using David Pace's original recipe.

I thought these little mini burritos would be a great finger food recipe for Super Bowl. They are super easy and taste fabulous!

Print recipe

Mini Burritos
by theUngourmet

18 small tortillas
1/2 cup brown or white rice
1 can refried beans
1 cup frozen corn
1 cup Pace Picante sauce (mild or medium)
1 cup cheddar cheese
several dashes of hot sauce

sour cream
guacamole
Pace Picante sauce
anything else that sounds good to you

Cook the rice according to directions. Stir in the beans, corn, Pace Picante sauce, cheese, and hot sauce. Cook over medium heat until hot. Warm tortillas in the oven or microwave. Place a scoop of bean mixture on each tortilla. Wrap up tightly. Place in a 400 degree oven for about 15 minutes or until nicely browned, turning once.

Serve these up with big bowls of sour cream, guacamole, and Pace Picante sauce.

This recipe can easily be doubled or even tripled depending on how many fans you're inviting.

Go Team(s)! :D

I love burritos.
But its easier to buy them at those fast foods, even they taste abit akward.
Congratulations for your blog, its lovely.

My sauce arrived shattered. It looks like it froze, since the lids had popped off and salsa was everywhere. It was after a particularly bad day at school, so I just threw it all out. :(

What time should I be there! I love salsa and mini burritos look and sound great...I guess the Texan in me is crying out for Tex-Mex goodness...

TKW said...

My kids will even eat this one!

Claudia said...

They'll be gone in no time. Won't even make it to half time!

Oh my GOSH!! I fall off the face of the internet world for a few weeks and look at you!!!!!

Your site is FABULOUS! I love what you've done :) And nice move disabling the right mouse click.

This recipe sounds good. Can I add a recommendation (as I'm always prone to do)? Costco has some "raw" flour tortillas that would be a delicious paring with this recipe.

Happy New Year, my dear friend. There is bad stuff afoot (eldest daughter's friend with terminal cancer) in my world... but I still lurk here so that we have good food for dinner every night.

I miss you!!

Kathy B! said...

Good grief. I meant pairing. Not paring. Maybe this is why I'm not writing right now?!

Corn and rice on a mini burrito - pure genius!! Seriously I would've never done that but WILL now! By the way, did I mention that I love your "print recipe" button? It's so much easier than highlighting, copying, pasting, etc. Yes, that was a printed one for sure ~ have a good day! ♥
