Burrito Bread

This is the new bread I’ve been waiting to make.  I thought it would be a perfect side to our family favorite taco soup.  The recipe makes a 1 1/2 pound loaf.  The onions will need to be cooked for 3-4 minutes and then cooled before you begin, so plan appropriately. (I decided to use dried minced onion instead because I was in a hurry and it seemed to turn out okay.) I added the beans with the wet ingredients, before the dry ingredients and used the regular dough cycle, then let it rise and baked it in the oven.


1/3 chopped onion

1 T. cooking oil

1/2 C. milk

1/3 C. water

1/3 C. refried beans

1/4 C. shredded cheddar cheese

2 T. fresh snipped cilantro

3 C. bread flour

1 T. sugar

2 tsp. chili powder

1/2 tsp. salt

1 tsp. active dry yeast

 Hubby and I loved this and thought it was really great.  The kids found out there were beans in the dough and refused to even try it.  Oh well, I’ll still make it again.  Let me know if you try this and if anyone in your family enjoys it.
