red bell pepper, chopped
1 (15 ounce) can
black beans, rinsed and drained
minced jalapeno peppers
chopped fresh cilantro
These were amazing, we cooked them up for Cinco de Mayo, and my fiance won't stop talking about how good they were. I doubled the batch and made a few changes and added: 1/2 t. cumin and 1/2 t. chili powder, a can of diced green chiles, 2/3 c. frozen corn kernels, 8 oz. cream cheese, a can of Rotel diced tomatos and green chiles and upped the garlic to 3 t. I served them with shredded cheddar cheese and they were out of this world. The diced tomatos added moisture--I noticed people had complained about these being too dry. They turned out perfect! This one will be a regular at my house.
This recipe is basically very good, but I only give it 3 stars because I had to change it for my taste. I didn't have the jalapenos so I skipped those. I really don't like cilantro so I left that out. I minced FRESH garlic myself for this recipe, and added chili powder as another reviewer suggested. The black bean, cream cheese, onion and pepper mixture was very attractive and appetizing, but I found it needed quite a bit more salt than called for. I added a little rice to each burrito, to make it more filling, and put a few teaspoons of medium chunky salsa in each as well. I doubled everything in the recipe and made six burritos to freeze for my husband's lunches. With the addition of the rice it would have stretched to about 10 burritos, but I followed another reviewers advice and saved some of the bean mixture for a dip.
All of the reviews are right - these burritos are awesome. The recipe indicates that it makes two big burritos, but they would have to be huge. We usually get four burritos, using regular "burrito size" tortillas. The filling reheats well the next day too. Great flavor and excellent source of fiber.
These weren't the best burritos I have ever had, but they were sure good. They froze well and tasted very good. I recommend wrapping them in a damp papertowel when you reheat them in the microwave...they'll come out tasting fresh again.
I doubled the recipe, added a can of green chiles and some cumin. Put the burritos in the oven to melt some cheese on top and then served with salsa on top...yum!!
Very good. I covered the burritos in pepper jack cheese and baked in the oven for 5 min. They are delicious.
My boyfriend and I love this recipe! I changed it a little. I boiled and shredded some chiken and added it in at the last minute. It was excellent. I also bought a box of Uncle Ben's Mexican style rice and added some of that into the burrito also. Needless to say it was gone in no time.
THE BEST!! Cut back on the onions and cilantro a bit, but left everything else as suggested. Seriously the best burritos EVER! Also, you just have to microwave the tortillas for 30 seconds. The oven just kept making them hard and unrollable. FIVE STARS :D!!
