Quinoa Burritos with Baconated Black Beans

These were the best beans I’ve ever made for taco night. No photo because we ate them all.

Baconated Beans
Add one can of black beans (do not drain) to a small saucepan. Turn heat to high and bring to soft boil. Mash up beans several times with a potato masher. Add one small clove of garlic, roughly chopped. Meanwhile, chop up a slice of bacon and brown in a pan.  Add the bacon and a pinch of salt and simmer till liquid cooks down, about 10 minutes.

Red Quinoa
Cook 1 cup of quinoa according to directions on bag. Add about 1/4 cup of spaghetti sauce, a dash of salt, a dash of chili powder, a dash of cayenne powder and a couple of teaspoons of cumin.

Brown some meat and add taco seasoning. Combine shredded sharp cheddar, baconated beans, red quinoa, lettuce, sour cream and salsa to a tortilla. Roll it up and eat it up!
