Easy black bean and salsa burritos


By the amount of Mexican food on this blog, you might think I have some Latin roots. That is, unless you have ever seen me. And especially if you have ever seen me in a Zumba class, which I just happened to be in last week. I’ll just say this: unless we were doing jumping jacks (this happened twice), I was flailing around like I was being chased by a swarm of bees or trying to walk over hot coals. Maybe both. Note to self: find Zumba class with no mirrors. And no windows.

Don’t worry though, I memorized all the “moves”. And I plan to bust them out unceremoniously after 1.5 cocktails at Ling‘s wedding. (Ling: I hereby request a Zumba song).

For now, I’ll stick to my Latin food and save the dance moves for when everyone is blindfolded. Behold: easy weeknight black bean burritos!

Easy Black Bean & Salsa Burritos, serves 2, plus leftovers for lunch
-1 can black beans
-3/4 c salsa (any kind will work)
-1/2 c shredded cheddar cheese (I tried vegan cheese this time, but its not as good as the real stuff!)
-1/2 avocado
-about 5 tortillas

Heat oven to 325. Drain and rinse your black beans. Add them to a bowl with your salsa.

Mash the beans with a fork, combining the salsa and beans into this lovely mixture (hey, it ain’t pretty, but it’s good).

Scoop about 1/2 cup of the bean/salsa mixture into each tortilla, top with a little cheese and avocado, and roll up.


Repeat for each tortilla.

Bake for about 15 minutes, and enjoy on the porch with some Mexican beer!
