Easy Black Bean Burritos

I love easy dinners, especially when they require little to no advanced planning. When they taste great and are pretty nutritious, even better. Take these burritos for example... They require almost all pantry staples, taste amazing with a nice cold beer, and are ready in 10 short minutes.

Served with tortilla chips and cilantro-lime rice (recipe coming soon!), it's really a perfect dinner.

Easy Black Bean Burritos 
Serves: 3-4 Main Dish Servings
  • ½ tsp. dried minced onion (or substitute ¼ c. finely chopped onion, sauteed in ½ tsp. olive oil for 5 minutes to soften)
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1 15-oz. can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 tsp. ground coriander
  • ½ c. sour cream (plus additional for serving)
  • ½ c. purchased or homemade salsa (plus additional for serving)
  • 4 standard-sized flour tortillas (we use whole wheat tortillas)
  • 1 c. shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • ¼ c. chopped cilantro (for serving)
In a large saucepan, combine onion, garlic, beans, coriander, sour cream, and salsa. Cook over medium heat, mashing beans a bit with the back of spoon, about 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Layer tortillas between paper towels and heat on high in microwave 30 seconds or until just warmend. Divide bean mixture among tortillas, sprinkle with cheese, and roll up. Top with additional salsa, sour cream, and/or cilantro and serve.
