I used to not like burritos. I didn't like beans and every burrito I had seemed to be bursting with refried beans. No amount of cheese could undo the beany beanness of those beans. Fast forward to college when I discovered black beans. They were good! My opinion of burritos went way up, so long as they had black beans.
Fast forward again to last summer, when a friend brought us dinner after Boo Boo was born. She brought us burritos. But not just any burritos--LIFE CHANGING BURRITOS. I talked about those burritos for months, and since I got the recipe from her last November, I have made them, well, a lot. They are SO GOOD. I cannot emphasize that enough. SO GOOD. I would eat these every day.
How do you make these magical burritos? First you take a look at the source material (I highly recommend that website in general). Second, you take a look at this adaptation of the original recipe into burrito form:
1 (15 oz) can black beans, lightly rinsed
1 (15 oz) can corn, drained
1/2 small red onion, chopped (green onions work well too)
1 clove garlic, minced (or just garlic powder)
1/4 bunch cilantro, chopped
1/4 c. shredded cheese
1 T. taco seasoning
taco size tortillas
Heat oven to 350. Combine everything in a bowl, besides the tortillas (duh). Add enough salsa to get the consistency you want (I think I usually do about 2/3 cup). Roll those puppies up and bake them for 20 minutes. A batch generally gets me 10 burritos w
So go make some and then rejoice in your burrito-improved life.
