Black Bean Burrito Bake Nutrition & Cost

Categories: cooking |

This really is a jackpot of a recipe.  You can make it ahead, it’s delicious, and it’s inexpensive. Here’s the cost & nutritional information.

Cost (4 servings)

  • 1 (7-ounce) can chipotle chiles in adobo sauce (one pepper from can) $0.50
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat sour cream$0.35
  • 1 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed, drained, and divided$1.00
  • 1 cup frozen whole-kernel corn, thawed$1.00
  • 4 (8-inch) flour tortillas$1.50
  • 1 cup bottled salsa$1.00
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese$0.50

I usually serve vegetables with the burritos. Kroger has a Mexican vegetable blend that’s usually $1.25 or less. It serves about 2 hungry folks so we’ll double that for the four servings.
