Homemade Delicious Cheese & Bean Burritos

My recipe for burritos is so easy to make! Roll up a few burritos, bake them and eat them now or freeze individually for super-easy lunches and dinners down the road. Add a side of brown rice and overall they are a wonderful healthy choice.

The main ingredients I use in my burritos are delicious even though they are store bought. Fast food burrito chains can’t even come close to this level of nutrition and quality.

6 small organic whole grain tortillas
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed (I use Eden Organic Canned black beans)
2 cups organic salsa or homemade salsa
3 oz cheddar cheese (or your favorite)
chilli powder to taste
½ of an onion chopped
Toppings: avocado, sour cream, lime wedges

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees for 10 minutes
  • Place tortillas on top of parchment paper lined aluminum foil 
  • Place ¼ cup of black beans on each tortilla
  • Sprinkle chili powder on top of black beans (to taste)
  • Add about a tablespoon of onion on top of beans
  • Top each burrito with one tablespoon of salsa
  • Shred cheese and top each burrito with a handful
  • Roll and wrap each tortilla tightly
  • Put the burritos in oven on a rack.  
  • Store burritos in a ziplock bag in the freezer until ready to use.
  • Cooking time varies: Fresh burritos - 10 mins; Defrosted burritos - 20 mins and frozen burritos - 30 mins. 
  • Serve with avocado, romaine, sour cream, lime wedges 
  • Store leftover burritos in the freezer (ziplock freezer bag until ready to use)
