I was making soups, spaghetti, casseroles, pancakes, waffles, muffins, etc. to stock my freezer and wanted to try something a little different. Before Jazlyn's allergies, I would buy sometimes buy the frozen burritos for a quick lunch. My version is much healtheir and tastes incredible. Plus, you can change the ingredients to suit your family's tastes.
1 can (15.5 oz) black beans
1 1/2 cups uncooked rice, cooked
2/3 cup salsa
1 bag broccoli and cauliflower, chopped
10-12 tortilla shells (6" each)
Combine all of the ingredients except for the tortilla shells. Use a mixing spoon to scoop a large spoonful of the mixture into the center of a tortilla shell. Fold up the bottom of the tortilla, fold one side over, then the other side over then fold the top over to seal. Wrap individually in foil.
* This is what I used in my burritos, but feel free to change the ingredients, amounts, etc. to suit your taste.
* Remove the foil then microwave for 2 minutes or until heated through.
My daughter, Jazlyn, is anaphylactic to egg, dairy, peanuts, and tree nuts. When she was first diagnosed, I found it very difficult to find recipes and foods that didn't taste like "allergy" food. Over the last 12 years I have had a lot of fun developing and changing recipes so that they are safe for her. I love to share my recipes so that other families can realize how yummy "allergy" foods can taste. You don't have to sacrifice taste or your favorite foods, you just have to rethink how to make them. I made a promise to Jazzy that I would do my very best to find a way for her to eat any food she wants to try. So far I have been able to keep that promise. I hope your family enjoys these recipes as much as we do.
