As a mother, it is great to have quick and easy meals to prepare for my family that is healthy with ingredients that are in my kitchen to prepare for the family. Black bean burrito is a go-to meal that is enjoyed by my entire family.
I usually have rice and black beans that are cooked ahead of time, so all I have to do is reheat, cook the tortillas and add fresh ingredients.If you have had Taco Bell black bean burrito or even the veggie burrito at Chipotle, then my version is way better tasting, lower in calories, healthier and hearty.
How To Make Black Bean Burritos
Pantry Ingredients you need:
- Black Beans
- Brown Rice
It is quite easy to make black bean burritos that are vegan. Cook the black beans with onion, garlic, cumin, oregano, and salt. Warm tortilla until pliable in a large skillet over medium heat. I love to use these Gluten-Free Tortillas and there is a lot on the market now to choose from.
We usually add black beans, rice, guacamole, salsa, tomatoes, lettuce on top of our tortillas. Sometimes we add vegan cheese and/or sour cream. We love, Follow Your Heart Sour Cream and Shredded Cheese. Make this fun for everyone and assemble them with the entire family!
