Spicy Black Bean Burritos

Coming from someone who doesn't typically enjoy black beans, this was really good and I will likely make them again. They were very simple and it was a fun, filling dinner that both my Husband and I enjoyed.

Spicy Black Bean Burritos
Recipe from: None other than Annie's Eats
Yields about 6 servings

Ingredients for the bean fillings:
2 tsp vegetable oil
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp minced chipotle in adobo sauce
1/4 tsp kosher salt
A dash of cayenne peppper
1/3 cup chicken broth
2 (15oz) cans of black beans, drained & rinsed
6 tbsp salsa
6 tortillas, warmed (9-inch or 10-inch size)

You'll also want your choice of toppings such as:
Shredded cheese
Diced tomatoes
Shredded lettuce
Chopped green onions
Sour Cream

To make the bean fillings, heat the oil in a skillet on medium-high heat.  Add the garlic, chili powder, chipotle in adobo sauce, salt & cayenne pepper. Stir and cook just until fragrant, about 30-60 seconds.  Add the beans and the broth.  Bring the mixture to a boil.  Reduce the heat to medium-low and allow the mixture to simmer for about 10 minutes.  Remove the skilled from the heat, stir in the salsa and mash the mixture with a spoon.

Spoon about a third cup of the bean mixture down the center of each tortilla.  Top each with your desired toppings.  Roll the tortilla up tightly, burrito style, and serve immediately.
