Black Bean and Chicken Burritos

Like I've said before, we love black beans. When I cook beans, I usually make a big pot and use them for a couple meals. This way I only have to sort and soak once a week. We had some leftover dutch oven chicken that needed to be used up so I decided to make some yummy burritos. Not really much of a recipe for the burritos. Super easy and a good way to use up any leftover chicken you have or you can cook some chicken just for this.

Directions: Heat 1 T oil and cook 2 or 3 cloves of chopped garlic and a teaspoon of cumin. When the garlic is cooked add 2 cups of beans and cook until hot. Mash your beans, but leave some whole. Layer down the center of your tortilla: cheese, shredded chicken, beans, salsa and sour cream. Fold in two side or tortilla, roll up and fry in a little bit of canola oil. Serve with additional salsa, sour cream and shredded lettuce.
