Dinner Last Night: Chipotle Bean Burritos

I wasn't feeling like working too hard at dinner last night, so I made these - Chipotle Bean Burritos, a pretty easy recipe and thankfully I had a lot of ingredients already on hand. I made a few substitutions which didn't alter the quality of the meal at all. First, since I didn't have the chipotle chili powder, I just substituted cayenne pepper, and in lieu of lettuce I added fresh avocado. But the kicker was using Trader Joe's smoky peach salsa instead of regular tomato salsa - it added a rich smoky flavor to the beans which in my opinion made the dish.
