Black Bean Burritos

Just made this for dinner tonight - yummy!! I got the recipe from - but actually used this modified version. The original recipe said it made 2 big burritos, this one said 6. I'd say 3-4 large burritos. Another idea to add it is corn.

6 (10 inch) flour tortillas
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 small onion, chopped
1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 (15 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 teaspoon minced jalapeno peppers
3 ounces cream cheese
3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
Quinoa or rice
Guacamole or avocados
Mexican cheese
Sour cream

Heat oil in a 10-inch skillet over medium heat. Place onion, bell pepper, garlic and jalapenos in skillet, cook for 2 minutes stirring occasionally.

Pour beans into skillet, cook 3 minutes stirring.

Cut cream cheese into cubes and add to skillet with salt. Cook for 2 minutes stirring occasionally. Stir cilantro into mixture.

Wrap tortillas in a paper towel and place in the microwave. Heat for a few seconds to warm the tortillas up. Spoon mixture evenly down center of warmed tortilla and add quinoa or rice, salsa and avocado and roll tortillas up. Sprinkle cheese on the outside and melt in the microwave. Garnish with sour cream/salsa. Serve immediately.
