Meatless Friday: Bean Burritos

Mike said, “You know what would take this meal up a notch? Ground beef!” This is coming from the man who forgets to abstain from meat every.single.Lenten.Friday. Except that time he had the flu. Because he didn’t eat anything.

So, what is this miracle meal? Bean burritos, of course. It is culinary genius – mainly because it requires heavy can opening skills and a prerequisite that you know how to preheat an oven.

I didn’t include a picture because it is a bean burrito, and I think you get it. Also, we ate them already, so opportunity missed. Bean there; ate that.
