Healthy Bean and Cheese Burrito Recipe

burrito recipe

There isn’t any food I love more than Mexican food (except maybe pizza). I grew up on it, so it’s a huge comfort food for me. Apparently, though, my taco recipe is a lot different than most. I make tacos like my mom and my grandma – no spices. Just refried beans and hamburger. Fry the tortillas and top with all the fixings.

Since I’m trying to be healthier, I decided to make burritos with a twist – skip the hamburger, add black beans and roll the tortilla into a burrito shape to make them easier for the diva to eat. Next time I’m going to add some sweet corn, too.

This recipe is so simple and so delicious! My husband, a “must have meat now” guys-guy says he didn’t even miss the hamburger. Only 300 calories per burrito if you have one serving of each type of beans. Not bad!

  2. I love veggie burritos. 🙂

  3. This is the type of burrito my husband LOVES! I can’t eat them because my stomach rebels when I eat beans. I’m sad, because they are so healthy!

  4. Looks yummy!

  5. Looks delish! It’s funny you posted this…I was just thinking about getting tacos from Tijuana Flats for dinner!

  6. I’m totally going to Paleo-ify this recipe! I’m drooling. It’s hard to find Mexican food in Paleo because of the beans and tortillas, but there ARE substitutions! I just have to find them! 🙂
