Meatless Monday! Chipotle Burritos

Yes! A new Meatless Monday recipe! These burritos were delicious and easy. The chipotle chili powder adds just enough zip to kick these up a notch from a taco bell burrito (in terms of taste), but not too hot to ruin the meal.

The recipe is from Cooking Light.

  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon chipotle chile powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 (15-ounce) can organic black beans, drained
  • 1 (15-ounce) can organic kidney beans, drained
  • 3 tablespoons refrigerated fresh salsa
  • 6 (10-inch) reduced-fat flour tortillas (such as Mission)
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) preshredded reduced-fat 4-cheese Mexican blend cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped plum tomato (about 3)
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded romaine lettuce
  • 6 tablespoons thinly sliced green onions
  • 6 tablespoons light sour cream

  • 1. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add garlic to pan; cook 1 minute, stirring frequently. Stir in chile powder and salt; cook 30 seconds, stirring constantly. Stir in 1/3 cup water and beans; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in salsa. Partially mash bean mixture with a fork.
  • 2. Warm tortillas according to package directions. Spoon about 1/3 cup bean mixture into center of each tortilla. Top each serving with about 2 1/2 tablespoons cheese, 1/4 cup tomato, 1/4 cup lettuce, 1 tablespoon onions, and 1 tablespoon sour cream; roll up.
