A new flair on burritos, and actually they're just as good fried up all together as a side dish, and then put into a tortilla. This was a tasty surprise.

I do a lot of vegan cooking so we try new stuff all the time. Both my boyfriend and I liked this recipe but I recommend a few changes. One: don't drain and rinse the black beans; they don't "boil" when there's no liquid in them. Learned this the hard way d'oh! Two: They need spices or they're a wee bit bland. I added two teaspoons of chili powder 1 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 teaspoon of cumin to the artichoke/onion mix. Three: I added a chopped red pepper in along with the onions garlic and artichokes. Purely my own taste. Four: I recommend grilling these or sauteeing them after you've assembled the burritos. It keeps them together much better and gives them a little crunch (assuming you like that). Read More

These were great. I did modify the recipe to a certain degree. I washed the beans and added a cup of water and let the cook out once they were almost done I added in salt pep garlic powder paprika chili powder and cumin powder to the beans. When I cooked the artichokes I also added in green onions jalapeño pepper and a tomato to the artichoke mixture and I seasoned with some salt as well. I also made some cilantro lime rice for the burritos. To each burrito in addition to the beans rice and artichokes I added in salsa and cheese. These were great a very good summer burrito with fresh flavors. Read More

This was very very very good! I did make a few alterations... I left out tomatoes and added a cup of rice and some cut up chicken breast cooked in taco seasoning. I also cooked the beans and artichokes together in a pot and mashed them up. Very flavorful and easy to make. Both my fiance and I loved it! It's a wonderful starter recipe there's lots you can add to it. Read More

SO good!! It only took me a half hour but I was mostly standing at the stove durning that time. I only got 3 large burritos out of it - I'll definitely double the recipe. I was surprised by how flavorful it was - it was truly delicious. I tossed some paprika into the beans and spinach in the artichokes which was good. I also loaded on the salsa. Next time I don't think I will because I like a dense burrito. Still it was delicious and really easy! Read More

This was a great recipe- but required a couple modifications (albeit small ones) to make it perfect. Like others I used one pan to save on clean up. I added the diced tomato to the pan during the last few minutes of cooking. With the diced tomato (I used 1.5) the serving size listed here was closer to correct. I also took the suggestion of another reviewer and grilled them on the George Foreman. I then sliced avocados and placed the slices on top of each burrito along with a squirt of lemon juice. After that they were so great! My husband told me it was the best meal he'd had in a long time. Thanks for the keeper! Read More

I love this recipe! However I drop the garlic and the tomatoes and use a fajita seasoning on the artichokes and onions. I put salsa and cheese into the burritos and then put them on the george foreman grill! Read More

This was perfect for a weekday meal; easy and quick. I added scallions and used pepper jack cheese instead of cheddar. topped them off with cilantro and plenty of spicy salsa. I will definitely be making these again. Read More

We liked this. It could have used a little something to moisten it a bit more (salsa instead of just tomatoes maybe) and it benefitted from a little hot sauce. We'll definitely be eating it again. Read More

I never would have thought to put artichokes in a burrito but these are great and I've made them multiple times now. I don't bother waiting for the beans to become pasty -- I just throw them in the pan after I've sauteed the artichokes for a little while and cook them until they were warm. Per others' suggestions I add some seasoning -- cumin cayenne pepper and red pepper flakes -- to both the artichokes and the beans. Yum! Read More
