Well, I made this 2 ways because the ingredient list lists cheese and the instructions say to bake until cheese is melted... but don't say where to put the cheese. So, I made this one time with the cheese in the burrito and one time with the cheese sprinkled on top. Both ways were great, though we were partial to the cheese being baked on top. The sauce is spicy, but not too hot... and tempers the creamy black beans. Served this with guacamole and diced tomato. Requires a fork to eat gracefully.... it's a rich, saucy, cheesy, yummy mess that makes you want to lick your plate!

I made this recipe with the cheese on top...and it still came out great...next time please specify in the instructions where to insert the cheese it may seem minimal, but to a novice cook direction is everything..but all in all a great recipe

I made this for dinner tonight using 2 jalapenos and 2 sweeter peppers. I also used low fat cheese and low carb tortillas. I didn't mash the beans very much because I don't care for the texture of them. We assembled the burritos and topped them with the cheese before putting them in the oven. Served them with homemade salsa and low fat sour cream. It was a terrific meal that the whole family enjoyed.

I skipped the jalapenos and did some without cheese to be vegan. Even without cheese they were very yummy although I hope to try it with soy cheese next time. Will definitely make this recipe a part of the dinner rotation.

Pretty good. Served with salsa, guac, and sour cream. Used WW tortillas and cut down to two jalapenos, since four seemed like a lot to me. I don't know if my peppers were extra hot, but I think even two were too much for us. I think I'll make it with one next time, and maybe add more cheese. Thanks for sharing!

Very easy and tasted great:D To fit the leftover ingredients I was trying to use up, I substituted refried beans for the black beans, used whole-wheat tortillas and omitted the cilantro and guacamole because BF doesn't like them. I lowered the amount of oil and used a low-fat cheddar cheese. Thanks!

Delicious! We didn't miss meat in these at all. I used sun-dried tomato tortillas, only 2 jalapenos, 2 teaspoons cumin and had no fresh coriander. I only had 26oz. of black beans so I added some canned diced tomatoes. As you can see, this recipe is very forgiving. It is sure to be served often in our house. Thanks!

This was a huge hit at a dinner party I had. I never thought black beans could be this good! I made it once using a can of diced mild green chiles and once using a can of chopped hot jalapenos. Both were wonderful, and it's such an easy recipe. I would recommend mashing more than just half of the beans, because I had some fall out of the burritos when serving. This will be made many times in our house. Thanks!!!!

I had never made bean burritos before. Beef, chicken, cheese, but not bean. These were yummy! I thought I had tomato sauce, but didn't, so I substituted a loosley drained can of rotel tomatoes and omitted the jalepeno peppers, as the tomatoes had green chilis in them. I saved the tomato juices, and added just a bit when I felt the bean mixture was too thick. My hubby loved them. Thanks for a GREAT recipe NurseDi
