Meatless Monday: Make Ahead Pinto Bean and Cheese Burritosaggieskitchen
Are you trying to incorporate more meatless meals into your weekly menu? I started doing it a couple of years ago and it’s become second nature to me to look at meals from a more vegetarian stand point. My family is not vegetarian, but we do balance out our meals very well to include protein of all kinds, especially protein that comes from plant-based foods such as beans, grains, and vegetables. The more aware you are of the nutrients found in foods of all kinds, the easier it becomes to work more meatless meals into your diet and the better it is for your health.
One of my favorite meatless meals usually consist of beans, vegetables and a grain of some sort, in this case it’s a tortilla. The beauty behind these burritos is that they can easily be assembled ahead of time, say the morning of or night before, and kept in the refrigerator until your meal time. You can even take the preparation one step further by customizing each burrito for each family member and just marking the foil with a name or initial. Your family won’t miss the meat in these, and you won’t miss scrambling to put dinner on the table on those busy weeknights.
