Easy Black Bean Burritos

A few nights ago I didn’t know what to cook for dinner and we came up with this yummy burrito that my 5 year old daughter loved. Yay! This Kid Friendly Black Bean Burritos recipe is great when you are lacking in fresh ingredients, and don’t want to go to the store. It is very forgiving if you don’t have one of the ingredients and need to substitute something else, (i.e. pinto beans for black beans, or can of diced green chills for the bell pepper). It would also be great with pepper jack cheese in place of mozzarella. The options are limitless. Have fun with this one!



4-6 (10 inch) whole wheat flour tortillas
2 T canola oil
1 onion, chopped
1 bell pepper, chopped
2 cans black beans
1 can diced tomatoes with green chiles (or 1 can diced tomatoes plus one 4 oz can diced green chiles)
1 cup frozen corn
2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp oregano
3 oz cream cheese
mozzarella cheese, shredded


1. Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and bell pepper and cook for 3-4 minutes. Add diced tomatoes, beans, corn, cumin and oregano. Heat through, about 5 minutes, then add the cream cheese. Let mixture come to a boil while stirring often.


2. Stack flour tortillas on a plate and microwave for about 20 seconds or until warm.


3. Spoon the bean mixture down the center of a warmed tortilla. Add a handful of mozzarella cheese. Roll tortilla up. Wait a minute to allow the cheese to melt before eating. Enjoy!
