Black Bean Burrito
Even though it’s been raining for about 12 hours, Spring is yet lingering in the air. The days are getting gradually longer and ever so subtly warmer. The sunlight is beckoning us to come outside and hang awhile. With that said, I am moving out of soup mode although not everyone in the house concurs. Nonetheless, I get to decide so I made a pot of black beans yesterday and with that a Black Bean Burrito(!); while I lacked the belle of the ball, avocados, the results were pleasing enough. Handmade tortillas have sadly passed off the scene – most are made por machina now, but I still get a thrill from La Estrella Bakery Spinach Tortillas’ unami seasoning of garlic and onion. My 82-year old friend Rosario says flour tortillas are not tortillas and she is right of course, but we have grown to love them both so, we cannot stop now. Plus, Chaya you never had the gorditas fresh from The Tortilla Factory – slathered with a little butter, that was a meal! Anyway, enjoy the almost Spring days. Top the Black Bean Burrito with a quick salsa cruda y !Vaya con Dios!
Black Bean Burritos

If not freshly made from a panaderia, warm the tortillas for 10 to 15 seconds in the microwave separately. Fill with hot beans, cheese, and avocado. Top with plain organic yogurt, salsa and torn mixed greens. Next recipe – salsa cruda.

I loved the use of black beans in this unique recipe. I had a batch of stewed Puerto Rican black beans and used them in the burrito and it had a nice Caribbean-Mexican vibe going on.
I use whatever beans I have on hand and in fact they eat black beans in southern Mexico. Thanks Marta!
I didn’t even miss any meat in this burrito. Filling and flavorful—I’ll be making it again!
The seasoning and spices really make you not miss the meat! Thanks Jazz.
I love burritos so I was super excited to try this recipe. It delivered so much flavor and was so filling. I’m making this again for meatless Monday!
Thank you Jen, the flavor is incredible!
I always have black beans in the pantry and I’m trying to incorporate more of them into my diet. This burrito was easy to put together and super tasty. Will put this on the regular rotation!
Incorporating fiber into our daily food intake should always be a top priority. Thank you Jessica!
