Black Bean, Spinach and Mushroom Burritos

Recipe by Valerie in Florida

A very hearty burrito

Top Review by flower7

These were nice. I made them vegetarian by skipping the bacon (though I seasoned with bacon salt, which is vegetarian). I cut the spinach way back to 7 oz - the full 16 oz would have been a ton! Otherwise made as written, using whole wheat tortillas and adding a sprinkle of extra cheddar on top. Thanks for the recipe!
