Black Bean Breakfast Burrito with Mango Salsa


A sweet and savory burrito, substantial enough to be filling, but so enticing as to make you come back for bite after bite, or even another burrito. Great for packing and eating later.

Recipe adapted from Vegetarian Times.

Ingredients:
-1 mango
-2 tablespoons lime juice
-15 ounce can black beans
-1/2 cup prepared mango salsa
-4 flour tortillas (8 inch)
-1 cup shredded cheese blend

Dice mango, then add to a frying pan with lime juice, 1/4 cup water and a pinch of salt. Cook on low-medium for 5-7 minutes.

Drain the beans, then cook in a separate small frying pan with the salsa on medium heat, for 3-5 minutes.

Microwave the tortillas for a few seconds to make more pliant, then add about 1/4 mango, 1/4 bean and salsa, and 1/4 cup cheese. Tuck in the top and bottom, and roll from the side to complete the burrito.



This recipe pushes out the boundaries of a normal bean burrito, inviting the exotic mango into the salsa, then amplifying it with the addition of the cooked mango. The burritos are an easy to prepare and fun to eat lunch or snack.
