Roasted Vegetable & Black Bean Burritos

I didn't get picture for this one, but there's a pretty accurate one right here Photo of Recipe, which is handily where I got the recipe from.

I stumbled across this recipe, and thought it sounded good.   It wasn’t

It was REALLY REALLY good!  I was planning ahead, and had the mixture cooling on the counter before putting away for later.  I had pot-roast, mashed potatoes and veggies all ready for dinner.  Suffice it to say, the pot-roast dinner was put in the fridge and we devoured these instead.

Guess I’ll just have to make MORE! I have modified the original recipe, and what I did is below.

Roasted Vegetable & Black Bean Burritos

  • 2 whole Sweet Potatoes, Peeled And Cubed Small (Kiwis: the orange kind, not the red skinned kumara)
  • 2 whole jalapenos, diced
  • 1 whole red pepper, diced small (Kiwis: red capsicum)
  • 1 whole red onion, diced small
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon oregano (Mexican if you have it)
  • 1 teaspoon ancho chili powder (not a chili seasoning blend)
  • pinch salt And pepper
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • ½ cups fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar
  • Sour cream (optional)
  • Burrito-sized wheat tortillas or wraps (6-10 count)

  1. Preheat oven to 425F. 
  2. Add all raw veggies to a bowl.  Combine spices and sprinkle on veggies, then add olive oil – mix thoroughly.
  3. Spread veggies on a baking sheet, or roasting pan (single layer) and roast for 20 minutes, tossing around halfway through.
  4. Let cool slightly, then place in a large bowl.  Add the can of black beans. Add cilantro and lime juice and combine gently. (At this point, mixture can be stored for later use  haha – good intentions and all!)
  5. Warm your wheat tortillas or wraps in microwave according to directions on package. 
  6. Add about ¾ cup veggie mix to the burrito, top with cheese and a little sour cream, and serve.

(At this point, we put each plate in the microwave for 30 seconds (to melt the cheese and make things all delicious)
