KBB's (Kidney Bean Burritos)

Ok so a few years ago my doctor really pushed me to go on a fiber full diet....Ya... Anyway it forced me to become somewhat inventive. Robbie and I were dating at the time and we invented the Kidney Bean Burritos. We had them the other night and I snapped some pictures. We both love them! It feels like such a healthy meal, and it mostly is. Plus its a cinch!

Heres what you need.

Flour tortillas (or wheat for extra fiber)
1 can Kidney Beans
1 can corn
cheddar cheese
optional: sour cream

Throw a small amount of cheese, corn and kidney beans on the flour tortilla, heat up for 30 seconds, remove and add lettuce and sour cream if desired (if I use sour cream I only use a tiny bit but you really don't need it) Then eat it. Honestly I know it sounds weird but don't knock it til you try it. I love it!


  1. Oh yummy! YAY for these recipe blogs with all the pictures. They save my life. No joke!!

    p.s. cute pic that you took of Em on my blog. I finally ordered them! I'm so excited to get them!

  2. MaryBeth--I don't know why I haven't made these yet. I've been strongly ordered to eat more fiber by my doctor---it's hard to find fiber rich food that you actually want to eat...and eat it fairly often. I just reread this recipe---Duh---this is something I should be eating and it really does look yummy and way easy! (side note--I've had major fiber problems AFTER both of my make sure you're getting enough iron so you don't have to take iron pills which will mess with your fiber intake and make sure you get enough fiber especially after you give birth to help things out that might be different though)
