How do you get a restaurant worthy black bean burrito? The secret is mixing in cilantro and lime to your cooked rice. It is a little trick but adds a ton of flavor.

The great thing about this black bean burrito recipe is that you can add in more of what you love. If you love a meaty burrito, add in some meat. If you love fresh avocados, add in avocados. You really can’t go wrong.

You’ll just want to make sure to warm your tortilla in the oven for 10 minutes, so that the tortilla shell gets a nice crunch. And the black bean burrito is nice and warm.

To fold the burrito, wrap the side closest to you and then fold over the remaining sides. You want the black bean burrito tight. Place the seam side down on a baking sheet. Cook in the oven for 10 minutes until the tortilla is lightly golden.
