Bean Burritos

I always have the ingredients for this cheesy bean burrito recipe on hand. Cooking the rice and shredding the cheese the night before save precious minutes at dinnertime. —Beth Osborne Skinner, Bristol, Tennessee

    Here I am again! I have made these twice now. We are crazy about them, even my carnivore husband. They are now in our regular rotation. The second time I made them, I did use leftover Spanish rice, and it worked fine. I served them with salsa and sour cream. I would only make one change. I would like more cheese on top, but that's an easy fix. A close relative of mine and his partner are vegetarian. We always entertain them for Thanksgiving. Guess what they're going to have this year! These burritos, a good salad and a nice dessert? Definitely something to be thankful for! Thank you for this GREAT recipe!

    Wife who always requires meat for dinner initially snubbed at this dinner but liked it so much that she’s requesting it for dinner again tonight.

    Cheap, easy and delicious recipe :) I add some taco seasoning for a little extra flavor. Perfect dinner for a busy weeknight. The recipe makes a lot so we always have It for lunch the next day too.

    Easy and good - though I would prefer less salsa in it.
