You guys know I've got a lot of tomatillo action going on these days, so I have the pleasant challenge of finding new ways of using tomatillos and tomatillo sauce. Here's another: tomatillo oven-baked burritos. Now, even though these are vegetarian and not vegan, you could easily make them vegan by omitting the cheese and adding, say, chopped onions and/or chopped tomatoes and/or vegan cheese if you're into that sort of thing. These are simple and delicious! The recipe serves 2.
4 flour tortillas
1 can refried black beans
tomatillo salsa, to cover burritos (click here for recipe), probably 1 cup (ish)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Coat the bottom of a baking dish (large enough to hold 4 burritos) with tomatillo salsa.
Zap each tortilla in the microwave just enough to make it fold-able (about 10 seconds). Put 1/4 can refried black beans in a line, bisecting the tortilla. Fold the tortilla in half over the line of beans, and roll up. Place the rolled burrito, seam side down, in the baking dish. Repeat with remaining tortillas.
Pour salsa over the burritos to cover and to coat the ends. Cover the dish with aluminum foil. Bake about 15 minutes or until burritos are heated through. Serve warm, and eat with a fork.
Serving suggestion: Spanish rice as a side dish.
