    Netgirl's Healthy Cookbook's Note:

    Since beans and rice together make a complete protein (, this recipe is great for breakfast. It make a lot and is good to have on hand for ready-made meals from the refrigerator or freezer. It is adapted from Breaking the Food Seduction: The Hidden Reasons Behind Food Cravings---And 7 Steps to End Them Naturally.

      Thank you for posting! This is my favorite recipe from Neal Barnard's book, and it makes a wonderful and healthy breakfast. The burritos freeze well, so don't hesitate to make a full batch. Thanks for sharing!

      I started making these when I realized that I didn't have black beans. I subbed canned navy beans and quartered the recipe to make 3 burritos. This must make giant burritos, because my yield was 5 smallish burritos made from 5 8-inch tortillas. Flavor was great and these were quite tasty. I threw half of them in the freezer for lunches/dinners. Thanks for sharing.
