I received my Lap-band on 5/19/2008. I created this recipe especialy for people who have had bariatric surgery, particularly Lap-band, but it is healthy for anyone to eat.

This is very quick-to-fix. It makes a large and very filling entrée for lunch or supper. If you have had bariatric surgery, cut it in half and save the other half for the next day or a snack later the same day (if your family doesn't gobble it up first)!

Remember to take small bites and chew each bite at least 25 times before swallowing!

Fast, filling and super easy to do. These burritos make a supper spring to life in a matter of minutes. Pair this with Spanish rice, beans, lettuce, chopped tomatoes, salsa, light sour cream and (if you can spare the calories) some homemade guacamole and you have a meal that even a Los Dos Amigos would be proud of! (I use smaller tortillas than what is in this recipe to cut down on calories. It doesn't ruin the taste and it is still filling!)

I throw these together every time I am a little strapped for time. It is always a huge hit with my family. :)
NOTE: The jalapeno gives it a spicy kick, if you are sensitive to spicy feel free to not use any.
