Recipe Ingredients for bean burritos

2 tsp vegetable oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 onions, chopped
1/2 sweet red peppers, chopped
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried coriander
2 tbsp cream cheese, softened
19 oz black beans, drained and rinsed
1 cups cheddar cheese
4 flour tortilla

Recipe Directions for bean burritos

  1. In nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat; cook garlic, onion, sweet red pepper, chili powder, oregano, coriander, salt and pepper, stirring, for about 3 minutes or until red pepper is tender-crisp; let cool.

  2. Meanwhile, in food processor, purée cream cheese with half of the beans until smooth. Add remaining beans and onion mixture; pulse just until combined yet still coarse.

  3. Sprinkle Cheddar over tortillas. Spoon 1/4 cup (50 mL) of the bean mixture along lower third of each tortilla. Fold bottom over filling. Fold 1 inch (2.5 cm) of each side over filling; roll up from bottom. Wrap separately in foil, sealing edges well. (Wrapped burritos can be stored in freezer bag and frozen for up to 2 weeks.)

  4. To reheat, place thawed foil packages on grill over medium heat; cook, turning once, for about 8 minutes or until heated through.
