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.


  2. Sounds great, I love meatless meals and beans are a favorite of mine!

  3. Your burritos sound really delicious - they'd be great for a Meatless Monday!

  8. These look delicious. We're trying to eat less meat, too!

  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!

  10. Awesome. I love meatless meals. I married a vegetarian and I it's much cheaper too although we only eat chicken and ground turkey.

  11. Thank you for thinking of us..I really appreciate all the good thoughts. Both of our boys are on the mend and we are heading out for a last bit of summer fun!

  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!

Crusty Italian Bread

Do you ever picture yourself eating a slice of Italian bread you know the type with the crunchy outside and soft and delicate inside. Well this is the recipe for you and I have found the secret to getting the perfect crust!! Crusty Italian Bread makes 2 loaves 1 1/3 cups warm water 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast 1 Tablespoon brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil 4 cups flour Place warm water, yeast and brown sugar in mixing bowl. Stir and let stand for a few minutes until it start to bubble and foam a bit.  Add olive oil and salt.  Mix and add the flour gradually.  You want to add enough that the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.  You want to mix it with the dough hook for a few minutes.  Cover and let the dough rise until doubled about 30 minutes. Punch down dough and divide in two and form into two loaves (I doubled the recipe this time.) Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat

Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake

One word for this one: DELICIOUS!!  It is so moist and easy to make.  It did not last long around our house.  My daughter finished the last little bit for breakfast  (she was afraid it would not still be there when she got home). Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake 1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1 package white cake mix (mine was vanilla) 1- 3 oz. package instant vanilla pudding mix 4 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 1/4 cups fresh or frozen, thawed blueberries powdered sugar Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly spray a 9 inch bundt pan with cooking spray. Combine the cream cheese and oil in a medium bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until blended. Fold in the berries. (Dough will be thick and sticky).  Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 60 -65 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool the cake on a wire rack for 20 minutes.   Remov

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles

Everytime I go to Costco I have been picking up a rotisserie chicken.  I shred all the chicken off the bones and it makes for great easy quick meals. This were the perfect use of it.  They were quick, easy and very delicious!! Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles Inspired by Dessert Now Dinner Later 2 cans of  crescent rolls 1 package of thin sliced ham (lunch meat)  slices of swiss cheese  2- 2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open the cans of crescent rolls. Separate and unroll the triangles.  You can either work on them all at once or in groups.  I made them in groups of 4. Lightly grease your cookie sheet. . Layer one or two slices of ham, 1 slice of cheese.  Then add a small amount of shredded chicken on top.  Fold the edges of the ham around the cheese and chicken. Starting at the fat end of the triangle, roll the crescent dough around all the fillings as tight as you can and continue rolling to the point of the triangle.
