Crisy Black Bean & Rice Burritos

Crisy Black Bean & Rice Burritos

Burritos are BIG in our household, like seriously big.. I can’t imagine a few days going by without wrapping up one of these little baby’s. I love making burritos because they are super quick, easy, and healthy. Remember how easy those chicken burritos I made a few weeks ago were? well these burritos are very similar except with black beans and rice.
