Corn N Bean Burritos

This is a great summer dish because all of the cooking is done in the microwave oven, you won't heat up your kitchen. Cooked chicken, pork or extra-lean beef can easily be added to suit your family's tastes.—Carol Birkemeier, Nashville, Indiana

    This is one of my favorite summer recipes and I have made it several times. It is a wonderful combination of flavors and I make it just as the recipe is written. The filling keeps in the fridge for several days and I can enjoy these tasty burritos all week long. It does make quite a bit. You might be able to freeze the filling, but I've never tried because these are so good that my husband and I always finish them off in just a few days.

    I've made this recipe several times. It is one of our favorites in the summertime. However, I use a larger size flavored tortilla - 12 inches or more. The Sun-dried tomato tortilla is especially good. And we prefer to use refried black beans. It makes a lot, but it keeps well. With just two of us at home, I fix the entire batch and we have 3-4 meals over the next 5-7 days. We can easily take to work since we have a microwave there. It is a meal in itself.

    I had high hopes for this recipe, but it didn't quite satisfy me. I think it needs less cilantro; my husband thinks it needs more. The 3/4 cup filling recommended as a serving seems too much, but no matter what amount of filling, it doesn't stay in the wrap and ends up spilling out both ends. I'll likely make this recipe again because of all the nutritious stuff in it, and how easy they are to make, but it won't be a favorite.
