We’ve not been to Mexico in our travels (yet), but we have been to a Belize. As these two countries share a border, it is no surprise that there are many similarities between their cuisines. Here is my take on a black bean burrito.
- 1 can of refried black beans
- 1 cup of corn (off the cob)
- 1 packet taco seasoning of your choice (or, you can make your own)
- 1 teaspoon of cilantro (fresh is better, but all I had was in a jar)
- 2 teaspoons of minced garlic
- 1/2 cup of diced sweet onion
- 4 ounces of grated sharp cheddar cheese
- Preheat oven to 325
- Combine refried beans, corn, taco seasoning, cilantro and minced garlic.
- Heat mixture on stove top until warmed through
- While the beans and corn are heating, dice onion and grate the cheese
- Wrap tortillas in a damp towel and heat in microwave for 20-30 seconds
- Lay out tortilla shells and scoop in bean/corn mixture, onion and cheese evenly down the middle of the tortilla
- Fold/Wrap tortilla and place in baking dish.
- Repeat steps 4 and 5 until black bean mixture is done.
- Sprinkle remaining cheese over the top of burritos in baking dish
- Cook burritos in oven for 10-15, or until cheese is melted and gooey.
- Serve immediately with toppings and sides of your choice.
This meal is quick, easy and scrumptious! It’s a little taste from south of the border that we absolutely LOVED! In fact, Michael is still talking about them!
