Vegetarian Black Bean Burritos


I saw this recipe on Ashley's Blog a while back and knew I wanted to try it because I love anything with black beans. Also, I like to find recipes that are vegetarian but will be enough that Bill will be satisfied with it as a full meal. These are definitely filling, have great flavor and they make a LOT, but they were a little heavy for me even using 1/3 less fat cream cheese. I think next time I might try using less cream cheese to lighten it up a little.
