There aren’t many meals that I can think of that are as inexpensive as bean burritos, especially if you are making your own tortillas (although I confess that I am not). If you add some lettuce and tomato, or other veggies, they are a super healthy meal, also. The addition of cheese does increase the cost a bit, but I have a hard time enjoying them without the cheese. So without further commentary, here is the super simple recipe.

Ingredients

  • 8 to 10 Tortillas
  • 4 cups beans (cooked) – black, pinta or combine them
  • Salt, pepper, chili powder
  • Shredded cheese
  • Shredded lettuce
  • Tomatoes and/or Salsa

Instructions

  1. If using dried beans, cook according to package directions.
  2. Take the beans and add salt, pepper, and chili powder to taste and cook for a few minutes.
  3. Assemble burritos – 1 tortilla + 1/4 to 1/2 cup beans + a pinch or two of cheese + a pinch or two of lettuce + tomatoes and/or salsa.

Yes, they are really that quick and simple. We have a couple of children that like them with ketchup! These are the kinds of meals that we have in our monthly meal rotation. You could also add re-fried beans and/or Spanish rice as either a side dish or add them directly into the burrito.
