Sharing burritos around a table is one of our (made-up) love languages. It does wonders for our souls. But when we can eat the things we enjoy and our bodies feel good about it, too, well, that’s even better. These Low-Fat Black Bean Burritos are basically our soul mates! They’re meat-free, which helps them remain lower in fat, but don’t you worry… they’re loaded with hearty black beans, tangy onions, salty cheese, juicy tomatoes, and crispy lettuce for bite after bite of wholesome and delicious satisfaction! Make sure you serve them with some toppings like tomato-y salsa, creamy sour cream, fresh cilantro, or alluring avocado to really get the flavors talkin’. Ah, we just love it when it’s Low-Fat Black Bean Burritos night! We wish it could be every night… and hey, maybe we’ll make that happen!
