Beer & Bean Burritos

Yummy!! This is a great meal for a few reasons.

1- It contains beer. This is a favorite of mine especially when I was pregnant. The one thing I use to crave when pregnant was beer. Oh, the smell would do me in and I would have to cook with it then.

2- It's vegetarian. So, when I cook this for people (if I ever cook it for people) I don't have to worry if their vegetarian.

3- My husband loves it. One of the best feeling I get is when my husband complements my cooking. When we first started dating I didn't even know how to make macaroni and cheese from a box. Seriously, I know there are directions but I couldn't believe that a tablespoon of milk was even necessary.

Here's the recipe:

Gather these items:
Tortilla Shells - I like the cheddar jalapeno ones.
1 can of black beans
1 can of diced tomatoes
1 can of corn
red pepper flakes
1 bottle of beer (corona works well, but any one will do)

Drain and rinse your beans and put into a skillet with a little bit of beer. Mash the beans with a fork. Do this for about 5 minutes.
Add the tomatoes, corn, red pepper flakes, and a little less than half of a bottle of beer. Drink the rest of the beer, unless you are pregnant.
Increase heat to boiling for about 10-15 minutes. You want to let this boil until the mixture is not so watery, you want it to have a paste-like texture.
Spoon onto tortilla shells and wrap like a burrito.

Now, what do you do if there are leftovers? Well, eat them with tortilla chips the next day. I would have taken a picture of this recipe for you but it was all gone before I could find the camera. Enjoy!
