Quick Bean Burritos

With a little help from your panini press or my personal favorite Cuisinart Griddler, yummy bean burritos can be in your tummy in minutes!

It just takes 4-6 organic flour tortillas, 1 15oz. can of fat free re-fried Beans (you'd think you'd want the vegetarian beans, but those usually contain oil, which you don't want) and a little Nutritional Yeast, salsa optional.

Simply divide the beans evenly among the tortillas, sprinkle with Nutritional Yeast, roll like a burrito.  Cook using your favorite sandwich press until browned.

So simple, I'm mad that I didn't think of this sooner!

Keep it healthy!
