Baked Black Bean & Cheese Burritos

I am attempting to move the family away from meat a bit.  So I am trying to use less meat and sneaking in a few meatless meals once in awhile.  This was a great one and no one complained about no meat.  They all loved it.  It is quick and easy and has most of my favorite ingredients.
Black Bean & Cheese Burritos
adapted from Family Circle
1 1/2 cup cooked rice
1 cup salsa
1/3 cup chopped cilantro
1 ripe avocado, cut in to bite sized pieces
1 Tablespoon lime juice
12 soft taco-sized flour tortillas
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 can (15.5 oz.) black beans, drained and rinsed
1/4 -1/2 cup diced onions
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Place rice in a bowl; mix in salsa and cilantro. Set aside. In a small bowl gently stir together avocado pieces and lime juice; set aside.
Place tortillas on a work surface. Place 1/4 cup of rice and desired onions in the center.
Top with diced onions, black beans(1/4 cup or desired amount). Divide the avocado pieces among the tortillas.
 Top with shredded cheese.
Fold up like and envelope.  Place on a lightly greased cookie sheet and bake for 5 minutes. 
 Remove from oven turn burritos over and cook an additional 3-5 minutes or until heated through. (Depends on how crispy you like them.)  If desired flip them over again and top with a bit of cheese.  Heat until melted.
 Serve with salsa and sour cream.

 *You can also heat these up in a skillet over medium high heat. Heat each side 2 minutes or until lightly browned.

  1. Hi Tiffanee - this sounds like a wonderful recipe. I bet you could freeze these individually wrapped pretty well - a quick zap in the microwave and you're ready to enjoy. I'm going to give it a try. Happy FF.

  9. You'll get no complaints from me on the beans! I love them! But I gotta say, one of your pictures looks like there are marshmallows on your burritos. That totally got me thinking of a marshmallow burrito! Sounds good to me!

  12. I love beans and eat them often! When I have burritos they are refried bean with no meat, so I agree (as do my 20-something sons when they visit) this is a great way to have a meatless meal, and no one misses the meat-enjoy!
