These burritos are easy, delicious, creamy, spicy, and of course, vegetarian! They are so simple and quick to whip up, and the sauce will make your kitchen smell amazing while it cooks! Actually, just putting this blog post together is making me want to run downstairs and warm up my leftovers! But, before I do that, here is the recipe:
Creamy & Spicy Black Bean Burritos [ Recipe by Neshikot.com ]
6-8 whole wheat tortillas
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 onion, chopped
2 boxes or cans of cooked black beans, drained and rinsed (About 14 oz each)
1 cup salsa (I use mild, but if you’d like to be really spicy, use medium or spicy salsa)
6 oz of cream cheese, cubed
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 oz shredded cheddar cheese
In a large pot, warm up olive oil, and then sauté onions over medium heat for about 5 minutes, or until softened. Next, add the beans, salsa, and salt. Stirring mixture frequently, let it come to a boil. Keep stirring (at least a few times per minute), and continue to let the mixture boil for roughly 3 more minutes. Turn off the heat, and add in the cubed cream cheese. Stir well until the cream cheese has all melted. Set mixture aside.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
On each tortilla, layer the bean mixture, followed by a couple tablespoons of shredded cheese. Roll up the tortillas, and place them all together on the baking sheet. Top all of the burritos with a light layer of shredded cheese, and bake for about 15 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
There are so many things you could add on to these burritos. You could top with some greek yogurt, add in some corn, avocado, or chopped jalapeños!
