The truth is that I’ve always loved Mexican food more than any other kind of dish. And for me, the cream of the crop may just be the burrito. You can just fit so many tasty ingredients inside of that soft flour tortilla. It’s a whole balanced meal in one package, and you can bet you’ll be full afterwards.
While a lot of burritos feature a meat of some sort – whether it be chicken, steak, pork, or whatever else – that obviously doesn’t always have to be the case. These delicious black bean burritos are a great alternative for vegetarians and even if you’re not, they’re so good that you won’t miss anything. They’re a solid option for parties or if you’re just looking for a easy dinner for one. Because if you’re like me, you could eat a burrito every day… forever.
