Black Bean Burritos

When I said that I was going vegetarian Jen V. emailed me this recipe that she found on allrecipes.com. I made them tonight for dinner and they were SUPER yummy. Thanks so much for sending me this Jen. They were awesome!

2 (10 inch) flour tortillas
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 small onion, chopped
1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 (15 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 teaspoon minced jalapeno peppers
3 ounces cream cheese
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

Wrap tortillas in foil and place in oven heated to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Bake for 15 minutes or until heated through.
Heat oil in a 10-inch skillet over medium heat. Place onion, bell pepper, garlic and jalapenos in skillet, cook for 2 minutes stirring occasionally. Pour beans into skillet, cook 3 minutes stirring.
Cut cream cheese into cubes and add to skillet with salt. Cook for 2 minutes stirring occasionally. Stir cilantro into mixture.
Spoon mixture evenly down center of warmed tortilla and roll tortillas up. Serve immediately.

* I would definitely recommend doubling the recipe for a family. When it called for only two tortillas I thought that it would for sure make more filling than that but it really only made enough for about 2 and 1/2 to 3 burritos depending on how full you stuff them.

BTW - Some of you have asked how the vegetarian thing is going. Thus far it's going great. I don't feel deprived at all and have been eating delicious meals. I have discover hummus to get some protein and I love it.
