Yeah, I ‘m in a mood for Mexican. This is the second recipe in the last few days. First it was Crock Pot Chicken Tacos, which are amazingly good and so simple to make. Then for Meatless Monday, here’s a recipe for Bean Burritos, all you need Margarita, and who doesn’t need a Margarita on Monday!
These burritos are soooo filling, you don’t miss the meat at all, and such a fast meal, it’s great for busy back to school nights that are either here for you or just looming ahead for you!
My daughter’s still got a few days of freedom left before back to school, but very soon it will be rushing to class and then rushing to one of the two jobs she has, so it’s great to have a few quick meals that she can take with her for lunch or dinner. And this burrito recipes is a very quick meal, while your simmering the beans you can get the toppings ready, land everything on the table with salsa and chips or put this bean burrito over a salad or rice for a burrito bowl.
