Crispy Baked Black Bean Burritos
- Ready In:
- 1 (16 ounce) can black beans, drained
- 1 (14 ounce) can vegetarian refried beans
- 2 teaspoons chili powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cumin
- 1⁄2 teaspoon minced garlic clove (about 1 clove)
- 12 flour tortillas, soft taco size
- 6 scallions, chopped (optional)
- 2 tomatoes, chopped (or 1 14 oz. can diced tomatoes drained)
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- salsa, for serving
- low-fat sour cream, for serving
- Preheat oven to 400. Combine black and refried beans in a saucepan, and add the chili powder, cumin and garlic. Simmer for 5 minutes. Mash the bean mixture into a thick puree (I use a potato masher right in the pan).
- On a plate, lay a tortilla flat and place 2 tablespoons of the bean mixture in the center of the tortilla. Top with some scallions, tomatoes and cheese. Roll up into a tube shape and place into a 9x13-inch baking pan, seam side down. Repeat until you've used all the tortillas and/or bean mixture.
- Bake the burritos until they are browned, about 15 minutes. Top with salsa and/or sour cream as desired.

Well, I love to cook! Big surprise there. I've gotten so many great recipes from RecipeZaar that I finally decided to join. My goal is to organize all of my stray recipes to make sure they don't get lost, and also to remember which ones we love! I like a lot of variety, so I rarely cook the same thing week after week. The trouble is, as time goes by, it becomes difficult to remember all of the dishes that everyone loved and/or menus that were a hit when we had company. I'm hoping RecipeZaar will help on that front. I work part-time and have 2 young children, so mostly what I focus on these days is preparing simple, fresh, healthy meals that all of us will enjoy. Our kids are not coddled - they are expected to eat what they are served. However, I do try to have at least one item on the menu that I KNOW they'll like. They are very good eaters overall, but of course they have slightly different tastes, and my son is a "separator," which makes soups and casseroles a challenge sometimes. Luckily, my husband will eat anything (and I mean ANYTHING) that is put in front of him. :-)
