Add bean liquid as needed Add vinegar and season to taste with salt.
Soften tortillas by sprinkling each with a few drops of water and turning over several times in a nonstick frying pan over low heat.
Spoon a scant 1/4 cup bean mixture into center of each tortilla, wrap envelope fashion, and fasten with a wooden pick.
Pour oil into a wide, deep frying pan to a depth of 1/2 inch and heat to 350Â° on a deep frying thermometer.

With a slotted spoon, remove burritos and drain on paper towels.
