Meatless Mondays

Food (or veggies) for thought: Did you know that about 18% of all greenhouse gas emissions are related to meat consumption?

Recipe of the day

Black Bean Burritos

Ingredients

  • 2 (10 inch) flour tortillas
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 (15 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 teaspoon minced jalapeno peppers
  • 3 ounces cream cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

Directions

  1. Wrap tortillas in foil and place in oven heated to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Bake for 15 minutes or until heated through.
  2. 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.
  3. Cut cream cheese into cubes and add to skillet with salt. Cook for 2 minutes stirring occasionally. Stir cilantro into mixture.
  4. Spoon mixture evenly down center of warmed tortilla and roll tortillas up. Serve immediately.

To make this recipe my own I would add cumin, tomatoes (or salsa), rice and I would substitute the cream cheese for a shredded cheese blend. What would you add?
