Method

  1. Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add peppers, onion and taco seasoning; cook 5 min. until veggies soften. Stir in black beans, tomatoes and 1/4 cup (60 mL) water; cook about 10 min. until mixture is still moist but no excess liquid remains.
  2. Spread bean mixture onto tortillas, leaving 1-in. (2.5-cm) border. Top with cheese. Fold edge of tortilla over filling, fold in sides, roll up to enclose filling. Make 4 burritos. Serve with guacamole, salsa and sour cream, if desired.
Tip:
Add rotisserie chicken, cooked ground beef or leftover quinoa for added protein.
For crisp burritos, brush tortillas lightly with oil. Place on heavy skillet or grill pan over medium heat; about 3 min. per side until golden.
