Ingredients

  • 4 large flour tortillas

  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed

  • 1 cup corn kernels (fresh, canned, or thawed from frozen)

  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced

  • 1 green bell pepper, sliced

  • 1 onion, sliced

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 tablespoon chipotle in adobo sauce, finely chopped

  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin

  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • Optional toppings: shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, shredded cheese, sour cream, guacamole, salsa

Preparation

Steps


  1. In a large pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic, and sauté until the onion is translucent.

  2. Add the bell peppers and sauté for another 5 minutes until they start to soften.

  3. Stir in the corn, black beans, chipotle in adobo sauce, cumin, smoked paprika, salt, and pepper. Cook for another 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  4. Warm the tortillas in a dry pan or microwave to make them pliable.

  5. Lay out the tortillas and divide the rice and veggie mixture evenly among them.

  6. Add any additional toppings you like.

  7. Roll up the burritos by folding the sides over the filling, then rolling from the bottom up.

  8. If desired, you can grill the burritos in a pan for a couple of minutes on each side to crisp up the tortilla.

  9. Serve immediately with your choice of sides or sauces.


Enjoy your Chipotle Veggie Burritos! 😊🌯
