Delicious Black Bean Burritos... Keeps you warm at night too!

From the Page

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. Spoon mixture evenly down center of warmed tortilla and roll tortillas up. Edit and save your own version of it! I doubled the batch and made a few changes and added: 1/2 t. chili powder, a can of diced green chiles, 2/3 c. cream cheese, a can of Rotel diced tomatos and green chiles and upped the garlic to 3 t. I served them with shredded cheddar cheese and they were out of this world. The diced tomatos added moisture--I noticed people had complained about these being too dry. I didn't have the jalapenos so I skipped those. I really don't like cilantro so I left that out. I minced FRESH garlic myself for this recipe, and added chili powder as another reviewer suggested. The black bean, cream cheese, onion and pepper mixture was very attractive and appetizing, but I found it needed quite a bit more salt than called for. I added a little rice to each burrito, to make it more filling, and put a few teaspoons of medium chunky salsa in each as well. I doubled everything in the recipe and made six burritos to freeze for my husband's lunches. The recipe indicates that it makes two big burritos, but they would have to be huge. We usually get four burritos, using regular "burrito size" tortillas. The filling reheats well the next day too. They froze well and tasted very good. I covered the burritos in pepper jack cheese and baked in the oven for 5 min.
