I made this with no olive oil in the pan - the first time I've done such a thing - but it's surprisingly delicious and incredibly low fat. Also, you DON'T need cheese, guacamole, or sour cream to enjoy this stuff, and that's coming from someone who lives and dies by all of those things. Put this in a burrito wrapper, on top of a salad, or eat it on its own in a bowl over some cilantro lime rice - it's even great in taco shells or between two slices of whole wheat bread. Serving size is based on filling for 8" burrito/taco wrappers. Also - be wary of using the exact amount of salt that I do. If you use non-kosher salt, you'll WAY overdo it and it will taste awful - cut it in half or quarter with iodized salt. I add by eye and taste so my measurements are approximate, including for spices.

Recipe Directions for Lowfat Summer Burrito Filling with Mango Salsa

  1. Sautee everything but black beans, corn, red onion, tomato, and mango at high heat until the veggies are getting soft and a little blackened.

  2. Add the beans and corn to the pan, cook until corn is hot, stirring often and scraping with wooden spoon as needed. Then add 2 tsp salt and mix well. Turn off heat.

  3. Combine red onion, tomato, and mango in a bowl. Add remaining salt and spices (plus any cayenne or chipotle powder to taste) and lime juice - and mix well. Adjust salt and spices to taste.
