Black Bean Burritos

As a mother its great to have quick and easy meals that are also healthy on hand 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. We usually add black beans, rice, guacamole, salsa, tomatoes, lettuce. Sometimes we add vegan cheese or sour cream. I love Gluten-Free Tortillas and there is a lot on the market now to choose from.Make this fun for everyone and assemble them with the entire family!

    I’m seeing so many burritos these days and I am not complaining at all! I LOVE them! This one looks delicious!

  10. These both sound incredible and look absolutely gorgeous! It’s actually my mom’s birthday today, and though I can’t exactly make these and give them to her since she’s lives far ..I can make them for myself and eat them to celebrate my mom’s birthday, right? That’s allowed, isn’t it? Dropping by from KitchenArtistry
