Black Bean Burritos

First published Jan 30, 2013 

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
  • Cumin
  • Oregano
  • Salsa

It is quite easy to make black bean burritos that are vegan.

  1. Cook the black beans with onion, garlic, cumin, oregano, and salt. Warm tortilla until pliable in a large skillet over medium heat. I love BFree Gluten-Free Tortillas and there is a lot on the market now to choose from.
  2.  We usually add black beans, rice, guacamole, salsa, tomatoes, lettuce on top of our tortillas.
  3. . Sometimes we add vegan cheese and/or sour cream.  We love,  Follow Your Heart Sour Cream and Shredded Cheese.
  4. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat, add one tortilla and cook on both sides, flipping tortilla with tongs. Transfer to a cutting board and Repeat with all tortillas.
  5. Spoon about 1/4 cup of bean in the middle of each tortilla. Top with brown rice,  salsa, guacamole, chopped tomatoes, and lettuce.
  6. Fold the sides and ends of tortillas over the filling. Serve immediately or freeze for later.

Make this fun for everyone and assemble them with the entire family!

      Thank you Cassandra, there is one on each page above my photo on desktop but you would have to scroll way down to the bottom of the page to find the one above my photo on mobile. I’ll ask my web developer to take a look at it. Thank you.

      Philly, I love them because they hold up pretty well for the fact that they are gluten-free. I have made my own salsa but I haven’t had a chance to post a recipe as yet. I hope you enjoy.
