Creamy Black Bean Burritos


As much as I love to cook and could spend all day in the kitchen, it is nice to have recipes in my arsenal that are quick and easy. These quick meals must also be delicious and boy is this one good!

These burritos are ridiculously quick to make, especially if you already have the rice cooked. If not, a quick 20 minutes in the rice cooker and you are good to go!

The burritos are full of black beans, cream cheese, rice, tomatoes, and cilantro. Seriously, the cilantro makes these burritos. I LOVE CILANTRO!

I went with a can of mild Rotel since I don't handle heat well and I thought they had just the right amount of spice. Also, I didn't add any extra toppings to the burritos and thought they were perfect just the way they were!

Enjoy!

Sounds really great! Perfect for practice nights when dinner needs to be quick but good. I don't even need the torilla just serve it up in a bowl.
