“This was really good!”

That is super high praise in our house, especially for something that is vegetarian, and even more so when it’s repeated several times during the meal. I guess that means I should make it again someday. Your family might want to give this recipe a try as well.

Black Bean and Mushroom Burrito Filling


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup onions chopped
  • 1 pound mushrooms chopped
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic minced
  • 2 cups black beans cooked and drained
  • 10 ounces spinach thawed and drained
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 1 cup Cheddar cheese grated


  • Heat oil in a frying pan. Add onions and cook until soft. Then stir in mushrooms and garlic and cook for 5-10 minutes.
  • Add the beans, spinach, and seasonings. Simmer until liquid disappears, or until desired texture is reached.
  • Stir in salsa and cheese until heated through and melted.
  • Spoon onto heated tortilla. Roll up and serve with sour cream and any other additional desired toppings.

Here’s the inspiration recipe. I’m sure it would be great as is, but I did make a few adjustments, which are noted above.

This concoction doesn’t necessarily look pretty by itself, but that’s okay. It still makes a delicious dip for some tortilla chips!
