3- 28 oz Black Beans
1 bunch Cilantro chopped
2 TBS Cumin
1 TBS Red pepper flakes
1 tsp Salt
2 pounds ground beef, or turkey
1/2 yellow onion- diced small
1 TBS olive oil
Taco seasoning for 2 pounds meat- I used trader Joe's taco seasoning
14 oz tomato sauce or diced tomatoes
3 TBS Jalapeno juice- from canned jalapenos (optional)
In a large pan on medium heat, heat the olive oil and saute the onion. Saute until translucent. Add the meat in small chunks around the pan. Cook meat until browned and broken up into small chunks. Drain off the fat. Add the taco seasoning and tomato sauce to browned meat and simmer for 5 min. Take off heat and set aside.
To assemble you will need:
12 Flour tortillas
12oz grated Cheddar cheese
Cilantro Black Beans
Cooked Taco Meat
If you have the counter space, you can build several burritos at once, assembly-line style, or just stuff them one by one.
The first burrito will help you figure out how much you can stuff in each tortilla and still be able to roll it. Take your filled tortillas, nudge the pile of filling toward one side (you can pull up the opposite end of the tortilla to shape it more into a line), then tuck the sides and begin to roll it tightly, tucking in as needed. Place the assembled burrito on a tray, seam side down. Repeat until all the burritos have been assembled. I had space to put the whole tray in my freezer, once they are frozen I will store in a freezer bag or two. To reheat in the microwave it only takes about 2-3 min on high. Add a bit of hot sauce and you are set for some quick and easy meals.
