One of the biggest struggles of the week as a working mom is finding food my three year old will actually eat.
Tonight we created a recipe that didn’t equate to tantrums at the dinner table.
Sweet Bean Burritos
1/2 small purple onion, diced
1 tbsp garlic, minced
2 tbsp olive oil
1 can diced Italian style tomatoes, drained
1 can red beans, drained
1 tbsp taco seasoning
4 wheat tortillas
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Cook the onions and garlic in olive oil until soft. Add in tomatoes, beans, and taco seasoning. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and let simmer for 10 minutes. The mixture will thicken.
Mash the mixture with a potato masher. Then spread mixture on each tortilla. Role tortillas and place side by side in a glass baking dish. Sprinkle cheddar cheese on top. Bake at 200F for 15 minutes, or until cheese is melted and tortillas are warm.
Serve on a bed of rice. (I used cauliflower rice to keep it healthy).
