Black Bean Burritos!!!

What is your favorite type of food? Perhaps it is...MEXICAN? Oh yea, we agree. Here's our take on some tasty tasty black bean burritos!

First, the tasty tasty innards of your burrito. We sauteed onions, mushrooms, green peppers, and (our new favorite) butternut squash. Once the squash was finally soft, we added our black beans. We just used canned black beans. Make sure to add the delicious juices from the can! Mmmm, finished innards look great! But you're still not done! What is a burrito without guacamole???

All you need is a ripe avocado and a lime for a super simple yet super tasty guacamole. Mash up your avocado and sprinkle in the juice from about half a lime. You could easily find a mix packet in a grocery store, but we like to keep things simple. :)

Of course, what's a burrito without rice? We just
used a box of Mexican rice mix. Pretty much that means it's just spicy, right? Oh yea, it was amazing.

Then there is the proper way of making your burrito. Take your super soft burrito shells and warm them for about 30sec in the microwave.

Then on your plate, build your amazing burrito!

1. Lay some salsa on the bottom for a nice little soft place for your innards.

2. Lay your bean mixture on top of the salsa.

3. Top with rice to contain those puppies.

4. Wrap it up and scarf!!!

And who would have thought butternut squash would have been an excellent addition to a burrito? But it was!!!
