Black Bean Chilli Burritos

Black Bean Chilli Burritos
Since I've been back working full time, I've had less time for both blogging and cooking, so I've been devising some really quick and easy family meals down to necessity. This recipe uses store cupboard ingredients and can be made in around 15 minutes.

Fills around 6-8 wraps
  • 1 red onion, diced
  • 1 large clove of garlic, crushed
  • 2 bell peppers, diced
  • 100g/4oz mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 tin sweetcorn, drained
  • 1 tin black beans, drained
  • 1 tbsp. chipotle paste
  • 1 handful fresh coriander/cilantro roughly chopped
To serve:
  • a pack of tortilla wraps
  • 1 pack of Mexican-style microwave rice
  • 100g grated cheese
  • salad/salsa/avocado/jalapeños etc. to serve
Heat a drop of oil in a pan, on a medium heat.
Fry the onions for a few minutes, until soft. Then add the peppers, garlic and mushrooms and cook for a further 5-7 minutes, until the peppers are almost tender.
Stir in the remaining ingredients and warm through for a further 5 minutes.

Meanwhile cook the rice and warm the wraps.
Fill each burrito with some rice, beany mixture and cheese.
Serve with the optional extras.

Vegan version: simply omit the cheese and check the wrap ingredients.
Top tips: Look for black beans in the World Foods section of your supermarket, as they're usually around half the price of the branded version.
Use the same mixture to top nachos.

  1. Nom Nom, good to hear from you, I have missed you blogging and hope your well. Yes working f/t does take its toll that when you get home you want quick, easy meals but do not want to compromise on deliciousness, these black bean chilli burritos so appeal to me - i like the addition of the chipotle paste too.


Thanks very much for your comment. I love hearing your opinions, so please rest assured that genuine comments and competition entries will be visible after approval. This may take 24-48 hours, depending on how hectic my work/home life is at the time!
