Chipotle Bean and Corn Burritos

Jessica Braider
These burritos are a standby meal at our house because they are so versatile. You can get creative and sauté some bell peppers or other vegetables with the onions, or add some diced chilies.
Cook Time 15 mins
Total Time 15 mins
Servings 6 servings

Ingredients
  

  • 1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 yellow onion chopped
  • 28 - 30 oz. canned pinto or black beans (or use 1 1/2 cups home-cooked beans for every 15 oz. can), drained and rinsed
  • 1 1/2 - 2 cups corn kernels, fresh, frozen, or canned, about 4 ears if using fresh, drained if using canned
  • 1 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 6 large (burrito size) whole wheat or white flour tortillas (use wheat/gluten-free, if needed)
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup chipotle flavored salsa (look for brands with no sugar added)

Instructions
 

  • Heat the oil in a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until they are softened, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the beans, corn, and vinegar and stir until heated through, about 5 minutes.
  • Heat the tortillas in the microwave for 30 – 40 seconds. (To heat them in the oven, wrap them in foil and warm them at 350 degrees for 5-10 minutes.)
  • Scoop a large spoonful of the bean mixture into the tortillas. Top them with cheese and salsa and wrap them burrito style.

Slow Cooker Directions:

  • Turn the slow cooker to high and put the oil and onions in for 15 minutes. Add remaining ingredients, except the tortillas, cheese and salsa. Cook on low for 5 - 6 hours or on high for 3 – 4 hours, then assemble and serve as per recipe. (Slow cooker cooking times may vary—Get to know your slow cooker and, if necessary, adjust cooking times accordingly.)

Notes

Do Ahead or Delegate: Chop the onion, cook beans if making your own, shred the Cheddar cheese if necessary and refrigerate.
Scramble Flavor Booster: Sauté 1 diced jalapeño pepper with the onions, if desired.
Tip: When purchasing canned items like beans, vegetables, or soup, check the sodium content, as many of these pantry staples can be high in sodium.  Whenever possible, purchase lower-sodium versions so that you have the flexibility to add salt to a dish when it really needs it.
