Cheddar Bean Burritos

My family goes meatless several nights a week, and this recipe is one of our favorites. I usually puree a can or two of chipotles in adobo and freeze in ice cube trays so I can use a small amount when I need it. —Amy Bravo, Ames, Iowa

  • Makes
    6 servings


  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced chipotle pepper in adobo sauce
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cans (15 ounces each) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 cup pico de gallo
  • 6 flour tortillas (8 inches), warmed
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • Additional pico de gallo and sour cream, optional


  • In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat; saute chipotle pepper, garlic and seasonings 2 minutes. Stir in beans and water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, until flavors are blended, 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Coarsely mash bean mixture; stir in pico de gallo. Spoon onto tortillas; top with cheese and sour cream and roll up. If desired, serve with additional pico de gallo and sour cream.
    Freeze option: Cool filling before making burritos. Individually wrap burritos in paper towels and foil; freeze in an airtight container. To use, remove foil; place a paper towel-wrapped burrito on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave on high until heated through, 4-6 minutes, turning once. Let stand 2 minutes.

    Because husband doesn't like sour cream, I left it out, but I did serve it on the side for me. I prefer it that way anyway. Taco Bell serves stuffed grilled burritos and that is what I did with these. I used my panini press to grill each burritos. Yum.

    The flavor balance is great. Completely satisfying. I serve the sour cream on the side, because I prefer it as a cold contrast.
