Aunt Jenny’s Black Bean Burritos

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 15 mins

My DH's aunt made these for us one night while we were visiting them--they are so good and easy! She made up a whole bunch and used the leftovers for quick lunches/suppers later in the week. They are quite filling, especially with the addition of rice. In fact, the bean mixture could be simply served over rice for a Cal-Mex beans & rice meal. Prep/cooking times are estimated. Using reduced fat sour cream and cheese, whole grain white flour tortillas, and no meat, a serving of 1 burrito has 6 points (WW).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Coat a large nonstick skillet with olive oil and heat over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook until soft. Add the beans, salsa, lime juice, and cilantro. Cook, stirring until heated through.
  2. Meanwhile, fry or heat the tortillas as desired.
  3. Place the tortillas on individual plates and spoon bean mixture on each. Add cheese and desired toppings.

Very easy to make. I just estimated amounts and it came out fantastic. Highly recommended.

These were wonderful. My 4 year old said she did like them when I put it on her plate. I made her try it anyway. After a couple of bites she said "oh yeah I forgot, I like these"!! This is a keeper.
