hominy-burritos recipe

 Hominy Burritos
 1 regular size can hominy, drained (1 1/2 cups, perhaps?)
 1/3 to 1/2 can can Ro-tel* tomatoes, partially drained 
   (I reserve liquid for other uses; its good over scrambled Eggbeaters)
 1 regular size can black beans, drained and rinsed
 6 tortillas
 Combine hominy and tomatoes, and simmer gently for at least 10 minutes
 so hominy absorbs the tomato flavor (Don't add to much juice from the
 tomatoes or the mixture will be too runny for burritoes). Add rinsed
 beans, heat thoroughly, and serve folded into tortillas.
 Salsa or pico de gallo could probably be substituted for the Ro-tel,
 but I haven't tried it; the Ro-tel makes this dish for me, but then I
 love this style of tomatoes. YMMV. Also, I usually open cans or my freezer 
 door for dinner :), but I'm sure this could be made with fresher 
 *Ro-tel tomatoes are simply canned tomatoes made with green chiles, and 
 are canned in Texas. I can't find them in California, so I have my 
 family send me regular care packages. In a pinch, I substitute Mexican-
 style stewed tomatoes. The last batch they send me came in screw-top
 bottles, which is much more convenient.
