Dorm Dining: Bev's Burritos
By BEVERLY SCHOLNICK
1 15oz can corn
1 15oz can black beans
4 medium tortillas
4 slices American cheese
½ tbs paprika
1 tsp Italian seasoning
½ tsp black pepper
½ tsp garlic powder
Drain the corn and pat dry with a paper towel.
Heat an empty frying pan on medium-high heat and add corn. Add paprika, Italian seasoning, black pepper, and garlic powder, stirring occasionally. Continue to toast the corn and seasonings in the pan until there is no more moisture, about five to 10 minutes. When done, remove from heat and pour into a serving dish.
Pour black beans into a microwave safe container and microwave on hi for one minute and thirty seconds. Pour into a serving dish.
Assemble each burrito by laying a tortilla flat. Pour a line of corn across the length of the burrito. Add black beans, salsa, and cheese in this fashion. Fold each side of the tortilla over the burrito fillings and serve.
Average Price Per Serving: $1.50
