We all know that I am a big fan of recipes that require very few ingredients and very little time. We all knew that, right? No?
So this new-found dinner recipe will be on the menu for the next many, many weeks to come until neither me, nor Mike, nor our plumber (what?) will tolerate another burrito being eaten in this house. Sick- sorry. Also, this is not a new recipe at all. It is a recipe for burritos, which I am sure you all already know off the top of your heads and make weekly.
But it was revolutionary for me.
Mainly because I have a husband who likes meat- a lot. And he happens to have a very pregnant, very easily nauseated wife who does not like to look at/handle/go anywhere near, let alone eat, store-bought meat right now-- I say store-bought because I would gladly eat a burger that someone else made, just not one that I made. I do not want to see the pre-cooked meat.
But Mike loves this. It is super hearty and filling, and here's the clincher: EASY.
I also really like this recipe because it uses up all the contents of all the ingredients: 8 tortillas, 1 can of beans, 1 can of tomatoes, and if you are super crazy, one block of cheese-- we were not so crazy because Mike is ever-so-rigorously fighting the battle of the bulge. SIDE NOTE: One large burrito is about 10 weight watcher points, not bad considering one is an entire meal for me.
So I give you an easy, tasty, minimal-ingredient recipe for spicy burritos. With more pictures than instructions- me likey.
- Burrito tortillas
- Re-fried beans
- Rotel diced tomatoes with green chilis
- Shredded cheddar cheese
- White rice (not pictured)
Give a hefty scoop of rice
A generous sprinkling of cheese
Fold up and place on pan to bake @ 400 for 10-ish minutes (flip and bake for 5 more on the other side if you so desire both sides to be crispy. We do.)
While baking, head to the living room to watch your husband rolling your children into human burritos:
|I did not prompt this.|
|Yes, she is taking a bite of him|
And wrap up the generous leavings for an entire. other. meal.
|"Wow, this burrito is delicious, but it is filling."|
