Lightened-Up Taco Bell Burrito (without the Drive-Thru!)

I shamelessly love Taco Bell's bean burritos. They are delicious. They are cheap. They are goooooood. I often crave them when I need a quick bite and I've now gotten the bf addicted as well! :) I was stuck at home one night making some cupcakes for a party the next day, and I was craving one of these babies. I realized I had pretty much everything I needed to make these at home- let the drool fest begin!

I used canned refried black beans, but you could make your own refried beans if you wanted to. The only thing I didn't have was some enchilada sauce, but I thought it was still yummy without. I always order my burrito with sour cream and without onions, but make yours to your own taste! I thought this was so yummy that I brought the other half of the ingredients to work the next day and heated up for my lunch. So easy! :)

Lightened-Up Taco Bell Bean Burrito 
Makes 2 burritos

  • 2 Large (8") whole wheat, low-carb tortillas
  • 1 can refried black beans
  • 2-4 TBSP low-fat shredded jack cheese (to taste)
  • 2-4 TBSP light sour cream (to taste)
  • 1 TBSP chopped onion (optional)
  • Enchilada sauce (optional)

Heat up your black beans in a pan over medium heat. 

Warm up your enchilada sauce. Heat up tortillas. You can do it on a skillet or in the microwave. I did mine on a plate covered with a moist paper towel in the microwave. This helps keep it moist without drying it out and making it hard. Place warm tortilla on plate. Scoop generous amount of beans in the middle. Top with cheese, sour cream, onions and enchilada sauce to taste. 

Fold in the top and bottom of the burrito first, then wrap the sides in. Place seam down and enjoy. 

YUM! :)
