The Anti-Chicken Fingers Movement ~ Whole Wheat Beef & Bean Burritos

Okay, so this was thrown together because it was time to go to the grocery store if you know what I mean...not a whole lot left to make a meal out of.  But, it turned out great, and the kids loved it too (with ketchup- hey, gotta do what works).

1-Pd Lean Ground Beef
6-Whole wheat tortillas
1-Small onion, diced
Tony's Seasoning Salt to taste
1-Can black beans
1-Can kidney beans
1/4-Cup light sour cream (more if you like it on the side)
1/2-Cup light cheddar cheese mixture or 2% (divided into two 1/4 cups)
1/4 to 1/2 cup of your favorite salsa
Jalepenos- Optional (I used the jar kind, already sliced)
1 Roma Tomato-Optional - I diced this up for the top

Brown hamburger seasoned w/Tony's or your favorite seasoning & onion (use a little olive oil if needed) together.  Heat oven to 350. Once cooked through & onion is soft, add all the remaining ingredients except tortillas, tomato & jalepenos & 1/4 cup of cheese.  Cook and stir until blended well and cheese is melted.  Pour a few spoonfuls of mixture onto open tortilla, sprinkle w/cheese, and roll up.  I had left over mixture which I froze for a future lunch or something.  Bake at 350 for 10 minutes or until heated through, serve w/tomatoes, onions, and anything else you like w/your burritos!

I was lazy so I didn't even do salad this time, but everyone seemed happy anyway!  ~ Happy eating friends! Trina
