Bean Burrito

A new month and so a new edition of Blogging Marathon. For Week 1 of BM #46, I have chosen to highlight some kid's lunch box recipes with Nuts and Legumes.

My little one cannot take nuts as a snack to her class due some nut allergies in her class. But apparently, there is a nut free table in their lunch room. So I do send some nuts in some form or another in her lunch box. But today's recipe is nut free but has legumes in them!!

Coming to the Bean Burrito, both my kids refused to take it in the lunch box but my neighbor's kids take them happily. But my kids loved these bean burritos for their after school snack and dinner. So make these burritos as dry as possible to avoid the tortillas getting soggy and individually foil wrap them.

Bean Burrito

Ingredients - 

Tortillas / Rotis
For the filling - Any or all of them as per availability/preference

Saute onions, tomatoes and half a cup of colored peppers add in the cooked beans, salt, paprika and 1 tablespoon of Taco Seasoning.
