Delicious Black Bean Burritos
***I originally found this recipe on allrecipes.com. I did make some minor changes--I added 1/2 can of mild green chilies instead of the jalapeño peppers, added more garlic,some chili powder, and canned diced tomatoes (it makes it not as dry). I also added some extra cheddar cheese when rolling them in the tortillas. I served along with Spanish rice and it sure was yummy! It helps to have great flour tortillas too...We had some awesome tortillas brought up by Craig's parents. As my meat loving husband pointed out, this would also be great with pulled pork.:)***
4 (10 inch) flour tortillas
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 small onion, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
2 teaspoons minced garlic
2 (15 ounce) cans black beans, rinsed and drained
2 teaspoons minced jalapeño peppers
6 ounces cream cheese
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
Wrap tortillas in foil and place in oven heated to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Bake for 15 minutes or until heated through. Heat oil in a 10-inch skillet over medium heat. Place onion, bell pepper, garlic and jalapenos in skillet, cook for 2 minutes stirring occasionally. Pour beans into skillet, cook 3 minutes stirring.
Cut cream cheese into cubes and add to skillet with salt. Cook for 2 minutes stirring occasionally. Stir cilantro into mixture. Spoon mixture evenly down center of warmed tortilla and roll tortillas up. Serve immediately.
