BBQ Chicken & Black Bean Burritos

This burrito is a favorite around my house.  My husband loves ANYTHING with BBQ in it and these are no exception.  I feel like these burritos are magical because, while I know how to make them and I know exactly what is in them, I’m still amazed at how wonderfully the flavors meld together to taste incredible.  I’ve shared these with friends and family members and, without fail, I am always asked for the recipe.  I  hope you can find the love in your heart for these too.
