Do you find that you are at a loss in what dish to prepare when you are busy? Here is a quick and easy dish that often saves the day!

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!
