Bacon and Bean Burritos

Bacon and Bean Burritos

Bacon and Bean Burritos are the perfect dinner and these are so filling, not much else is needed on the side, except perhaps a crunchy salad.

The bacon and bean filling is just perfect for these in between season days, as it is not too rich, yet makes a delicious dinner and the ones with a bigger appetite can have two … or three. I can usually only manage about one and a half Burrito at most at one time.

Bacon and Bean Burritos - Filling

One rarely really see the filling when searching for a recipe, and that is one of the things I like to see, as in the photo above. You can see every ingredient, and let me tell you, this is one awesome filling – I mean, really … there’s Bacon in it !

Bacon and Bean Burritos

I like to place all the different fillings in separate bowls and let each person build his or her own Burrito, as not all of us, either do not like the same arrangement, or have a dislike of one of the ingredients.

Some persons would not have sour cream near food, whereas others have a distinct dislike of guacamole — really guacamole ??  I love the stuff and could eat it with a spoon {which I do anyway with leftovers!}. Not so sure I’ll eat the sour cream with a spoon though, but in a Burrito or a wrap — anytime !
