Black Bean Burritos

black beansHere is a great recipe for Vegetarian Black Burritos … yum!!
I served them for my family, and they were gone fast. Wished I had made more!

Whole wheat tortillas
2 cans black beans (dried beans are fine, just soak overnight)
2 green scallions (chopped)
1 clove garlic
1 tsp. cilantro
2-3 peppers (green, red or yellow) chopped
2 tablespoons cream cheese
1 tablespoons olive oil
2 cups of Colby/Jack shredded cheese

In a skillet, sauté oil, scallions, garlic, and peppers until just soft. Add black beans, cream cheese (cut up and added separately), and cilantro. Blend and stir. Microwave tortillas and add bean mixture and add a handful of shredded cheese to tortillas. Wrap burritos, place in a casserole baking dish, cover with foil, and place in 300 degree oven to stay warm until you serve.
Serve with salad and tortilla chips and salsa. If you don’t want to get in trouble for not having enough, double the recipe (leftover black beans can be used the following day in soup).
These burritos are perfect for Lenten Fridays.
