Black Bean & Vegetable Burritos

Created by Shari Broder - serves 4

This is a quick weeknight supper using canned black beans. You can substitute whatever vegetables you like. I sometimes add grated sweet potatoes or avocado. Serve with salsa and sour cream if you like.


3/4 c. chopped onion

1 T. olive oil

1/2 t. ground cumin

1/2 t. chili powder

2 garlic cloves, minced

1/2 green chili pepper, minced (canned are fine)

2/3 c. frozen corn kernels

1 medium carrot, coarsely grated

1 can black beans, drained

1/2 c. canned diced tomatoes, drained

1 c. grated cheddar or other cheese

fresh cilantro, sour cream, salsa (optional)

large flour tortillas


Heat nonstick skillet to medium-high.

Add oil and onion, and saute until golden.

Add peppers. Saute until soft, then add garlic for about a minute.

Add cumin and chili powder, and stir another 30 seconds or so, until fragrant.

Add carrots and corn, and saute about 5 minutes, until almost tender.

Add beans and tomatoes, and season with salt and pepper.

Let simmer about five minutes.

Warm tortillas in microwave. spoon filling down the center. Sprinkle with 2 T. or so of cheese, sprinkle with some cilantro, and fold up burrito style.
