Black Bean Burritos

Black Bean Burrito

I am always being asked for more meatless meals.  I guess I don’t post many because we don’t go meatless in my house that often. My Husband and I both come from families that had meat on the table every night.  Typically as meatless as we get is pizza, and then it probably will have peperoni.

There is that rare occasion when meat isn’t needed. Black Beans and Rice is one of them.  I usually make such a huge batch there is always left overs.  When there are, these Black Bean Burritos are soon to follow.  They are creamy, filling and delicious!  If you are looking for something to make that is meatless and affordable these will do it everytime!
