ISO Mexican and dairy

I was in the store and saw some soft tortilla wraps. I decided to surprise my wife and make something Mexican for her, as she likes it, but since I do not, I usually do not make it very often.
Now I have a problem. What to make? I would really like help with recipe too. It has to be either vegetarian or preferably dairy. No Meat recipes please. She likes re-fried beans or simply beans, Mexican rice, cheder is her choice of cheese, she want eat any other kind, but that is a minor detail. She likes salsa and guacamole. If you can help me with those ingredients it would be awesome. Really appreciate.

Than you in advance.

Hey Charlie, we have a Mexican vegetarian cookbook and we really like the chilaquiles.

We made this once Oven Roasted Chile Relleno with Chipotle Asado Sauce Recipe : Food Network and I really liked it but Craig wasn't big on the quinoa (actually he hated it). Kind of involved to make though so maybe a later surprise for her.

Charlie, does your wife eat fish? Fish tacos are awesome.

Any of the things you already mentioned can be rolled up in tortillas. You can eat as is or bake with additional cheese, maybe salsa, then put on some shredded lettuce and sour cream. Pickled onions are a nice addition.

She doesn't eat fish. So I should wrap all the ingredients I mention into the wrap and bake it?

I would put refried beans and cheese in the tortillas, roll them up, put them in a baking dish, then top with salsa and more cheese, then bake. Serve with Mexican rice, salsa and guacamole on the side.

You can mix salsa and lime juice into the beans to give them more flavor.

My entire extended family loves simple home-made burritos using the exact ingredients you named. I just get a can of refried beans (I like Rosarita or Taco Bell brand) add one can of drained pinto beans, chopped onion, a small can of Ortega chilis, fresh cilantro, corn, black olives, and sliced grape tomatoes. For seasoning, a little lime juice, chili powder, garlic powder, cumin and S/P. Do NOT add liquid or the mixture will become too runny to spoon into the tortilla wraps. I just spoon the mixture in and spread it about, add a liberal amount of sharp cheddar and roll them up. I don't bake them but just put them into the microwave for about 30-45 seconds, bring them out and garnish with avocado, salsa, and a dollup of sour cream or Greek yogurt. I make my own tortillas which the grandkids snatch, roll up and eat plain so I have to guard them! Variations are endless and this is a comfort food favorite in our household. Home-made tortillas are made with 3 parts unbleached flour to 1 part whole wheat flour, olive oil, salt, and water AND a good press. We make so many tortillas we wore out our old press.

Sure! You can eat them without baking too.

I'm liking all the ideas so far!

Thanks everybody. I think this should be enough to make something simple.
