This is awesome! I did make a few modifications. I used black beans instead of kidney beans, added some chopped black olives, added a couple of tablespoons of corn meal as a thickener, decreased the chili powder by about a third to make it more kid friendly, and served it in some of those specialty tomato basil burritos, with some cheddar, sour cream, and taco bell mild taco sauce. TERRIFIC!!!!! Thanks for a great recipe, Lisa! Read More

I didn't make the recipe because it has so much fat and calories. It sounds delicious. I will try it but I will cut out the fat. Any suggestions for a lighter version? Read More

The whole family loved this recipe! I substituted the black beans for kidney as suggested. It was an enjoyable and fairly simple recipe to make. Then I served the burrito mixture in a pot and put out all the toppings so people could customize their own burritos. I made a little extra and reheated for lunches throughout the week. I'll be making these again soon! Read More

I am giving 4 stars as an assumption for how I will feel about it when I make it. I am mainly replying to the poster who asked about reducing fat and calories on this. Most of the fat is coming from the nutritional calculator splitting one ripe avocao into 4 servings plus the 4 T sour cream and the 2 T oil. I always use ff sour cream and I hate avocado so cutting the oil back makes this almost fat free for me (assmuing you use fat free tortillas). Since there's about 28 grams of fat by the nutritional calculator(that contribute 250 calories) taking out the avocado and using FF sc and cutting back the oil helps tremendously in making this a good light entree.

This was really good. I sprinkled the tortillas with cilantro leaves before filling and then added cheddar cheese on top before rolling up (although this adds more calories). Read More

I enjoyed this-- It was a little different and certainly fiber-filled. About the only thing I changed was adding a tsp. of cilantro to the mix and I used fresh spinach. I used fat-free sour cream as well. Keep in mind that this makes 4 very big burritos! Next time I might do only 8 oz. of spinach just to balance the ingredients a little. Read More
