Spicy Bean Burritos

When I was putting these burritos together and asking Gray what he wanted on his I told him I felt like the person behind the glass at Moe's!  These are so easy to throw together and I love easy. This recipe is slightly adapted from Smells Like Home.

Bean Filling:
2 tsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic (minced)
1 tsp ancho chile powder
3 tsp minced pickled jalapenos
1 tsp ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/3 cup water or vegetable broth or chicken broth
1 15oz can black beans (drained and rinsed)
1 15oxe can pinto beans (drained and rinsed)
1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp salsa
Juice of one lime

For serving:
 6 10-inch flour tortillas (burrito size)
1 cup cooked Rice
Shredded cheese (cheddar, pepper jack, monterey jack, or a mixture)
Other topping suggestions: Sour Cream, Tomatoes, Salsa, Lettuce, Avocado, Guacamole, Diced Onions

In a large skillet over medium heat combine the olive oil, garlic, jalapenos, cumin and salt. Cook for 1 minute. Add in the broth and beans and bring to a boil.  Lower the heat to medium low and allow to simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in salsa and lime juice then slightly mash the beans.

To prepare the burritos, microwave the tortillas one at a time between two damp paper towels for 10 to 15 seconds.  Top with rice, bean mixture, cheese and remaining desired toppings. Wrap up and serve right away.
