Black Bean and Roasted Vegetable Burritos

  • FAST

Hearty black beans, sweet roasted vegetables, smoky chipotles and Cheddar cheese fill these vegetarian burritos. The vegetables can be grilled rather than roasted.

  1. Vegetable oil spray
  2. 4 medium red, green and yellow bell peppers, cut into 3-by-1/4-inch matchsticks
  3. 1 large onion, sliced crosswise 1/4 inch thick
  4. 1 medium zucchini, cut into 3-by-1/4-inch matchsticks
  5. 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  6. 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  7. 1 teaspoon oregano
  8. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  9. 3 cups cooked black beans, drained and rinsed if canned
  10. 2 scallions, finely chopped
  11. 2 canned chipotles chiles—stemmed, seeded and minced
  12. 3 garlic cloves, minced
  13. 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro
  14. 1 to 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  15. Eight 10-inch flour tortillas
  16. 1 cup grated low-fat Cheddar cheese (about 3 ounces)
  17. 3 tomatoes, seeded and minced
  1. Preheat the oven to 475°. Lightly coat a shallow roasting pan or rimmed baking sheet with vegetable oil spray. In a large bowl, combine the bell peppers, onion, zucchini, lemon juice, oil, oregano and a pinch each of salt and pepper. Transfer the vegetables to the pan and roast for 20 to 25 minutes, stirring, until crisp-tender.
  2. In a nonreactive saucepan, coarsely mash half of the beans with the scallions, chipotles, garlic and cilantro. Add the remaining beans and season with the lime juice, salt and pepper. Cook over moderate heat, stirring, until warmed through, about 6 minutes.
  3. Heat a large cast-iron skillet or griddle over moderate heat. Heat the tortillas, 1 at a time, until just softened, about 15 seconds per side. Transfer to plates and pile the beans and vegetables on top. Sprinkle with the cheese and roll up the tortillas. Top with the tomatoes and serve.

Suggested Pairing

Peppers, onions, Cheddar cheese and garlicky beans—these direct flavors call for a gutsy red, such as a California Zinfandel. Look for Marietta or Bannister Dry Creek Valley.
