Beans, Beans, They're Good For Your Heart...

Today I am going to share with you one of Josh and my go-to, favorite recipes: Black Bean Burritos. The first time I was making this recipe about a year ago, my carnivore husband balked at the suggestion that this would be a substansial dinner. But after tasting them once, he has been hooked and now regularly requests them. The best part is that they are pretty easy to make and are relatively healthy (like 4 points for 1/4 in the Weight Watchers world + the tortilla each time). So, without further ado, here it is:

  • 4 tortillas, wrapped in tin foil (for 2 people...we always count on 2 burritos per person!)
  • 1 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 15 oz. can black beans, drained
  • can Rotel (mild, medium, or hot depending on your preference), drained
  • 3 oz. cream cheese, cubed
  • 2 tbsp. chopped cilantro

To make:

  1. Preheat oven to 350. Warm tortillas in tin foil for 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, heat oil in skillet over medium high heat. Add onion and garlic, and saute about 2 minutes. Stir in black beans and Rotel and let simmer for about 3 minutes. Add in cream cheese. Stir frequently for about 2 more minutes. Stir in cilantro.
  3. Serve with tortillas.

So, there you have it...how easy?!? And trust me when I tell you: they are pretty freaking tasty. Anybody else have any go-to recipes they want to share?
