Speedy Black Bean Burritos

Makes 4 burritos

Spicy black beans, wrapped in a flour tortilla, make a quick and satisfying meal.

1 15-ounce can black beans, drained
1/4 cup salsa
3 tablespoons dry bulgur
4 flour tortillas
1 cup shredded leaf lettuce
1 tomato, chopped
1 additional salsa for serving (optional)

Combine black beans, salsa, and bulgur in a saucepan and simmer gently for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat, cover, and let stand for 5 minutes.

Heat a tortilla in a dry skillet until it is warm and soft, then spread a line of bean mixture down the center of the tortilla. Top with lettuce, tomato, and additional salsa, if using. Roll the tortilla around the filling, then repeat with the remaining tortillas.
