Meatless Meals: Spicy Bean Burritos


I'd love to start doing one meatless day each week.  Not only does it save money, but I feel like our society regularly eats too much meat ... especially red meat.   Bean burritos are so easy to make, they're packed with protein, and even seem pretty meaty.
Best dishes and yummy dreams!

Spicy Bean and Rice Burritos

1 15-oz. can pinto beans
1 15-oz. can black beans
1/2 can medium-spiced Rotel
1 tsp. minced chipotle in adobo sauce
2 cloves garlic, grated
3/4 c. vegetable broth
1/2 c. salsa
1 c. rice - prepared with 1 tbsp. lime juice and 1 tbsp. cilantro
shredded cheddar

1-2 tbsp. olive oil
tortillas

Toppings:
sour cream
salsa
lettuce
tomatoes



1.  In a sauce pan, combine beans, Rotel, chipotle, garlic, taco seasoning, broth, and salsa.
2.  Simmer until mixture thickens.
3.  Place the mixture in a tortilla, add rice and cheese into the burrito and wrap.

4.  Heat the olive oil in a pan.
5.  Toast the burritos until the tortilla is crunchy, repeat after flipping.

Thanks for reading, loves xo

We try to eat meatless at least once a week for the same reasons :) Your Spicy Bean Burritos sound like the perfect meatless meal, both delicious and nutritious!
