  • Total Time: Prep/Total Time: 25 min.
  • Makes: 6 servings


  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced chipotle pepper in adobo sauce
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cans (15 ounces each) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 cup pico de gallo
  • 6 flour tortillas (8 inches), warmed
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • Additional pico de gallo and sour cream, optional


  • In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat; saute chipotle pepper, garlic and seasonings 2 minutes. Stir in beans and water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, until flavors are blended, 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Coarsely mash bean mixture; stir in pico de gallo. Spoon onto tortillas; top with cheese and sour cream and roll up. If desired, serve with additional pico de gallo and sour cream.
    Freeze option: Cool filling before making burritos. Individually wrap burritos in paper towels and foil; freeze in a resealable plastic freezer bag. To use, remove foil; place a paper towel-wrapped burrito on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave on high until heated through, 4-6 minutes, turning once. Let stand 2 minutes.
