Reviews for Black Bean Veggie Burritos
"These are delicious! Easy to make ahead and freeze for a quick meal.-BA"
"I really liked these burritos. My 3-year-old son didn't care for them quite as much. I left out the cheese and put the salsa inside the burrito. It worked great!"
"Yummy way to pack a bunch of veggies into a meal. I used less cheese to reduce the fat."
