Black Bean Burritos

I had an unexpected night off work so I decided to try to today’s allrecipes recipe, which gets sent to my email daily. It was a hit! However, next time I will probably use less cream cheese. I paired it with rice from a box. One of the great things about cooking this dish is that I love colourful dishes!
