Burritos

Burritos don't really need a recipe, but the burritos we made the other night were just so delicious that I just had to share.  We love spicy food around here, and these burritos turned out to be very spicy, but very yummy.  You can make yours any way you please.


Burrito "Bar"
Brown rice, cooked
Beans, peppers, and corn
Chicken
Cheddar cheese
Burrito Sauce
Tomato and Corn Chipotle Salsa
Sour Cream

Black Beans
from Canadian Living:

1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/2 green pepper, diced
1/2 red pepper, diced
1/2 yellow onion, finely diced
1/2 cup whole corn kernels
1 - 14.5oz. can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 tablespoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
Salt and pepper

In large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat; cook onion, peppers, chili powder, cumin, salt and pepper until softened, about 8 minutes. Add black beans and corn; cook, stirring often, until heated through, about 5 minutes.

Burrito Sauce
N made this sauce by experimenting with ingredients, the amounts listed and the ingredients themselves are all optional.

1/4 cup sliced pickled hot peppers (banana and jalapeño peppers)
2-3 tablespoons jalapeño juice
2 chipotles in adobo sauce, diced
1 teaspoon chili powder
2 tablespoons sour cream
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
2 tablespoons refried beans
juice from 1/4 lime

Mix all ingredients in a food processor until creamy and smooth. Serve with burritos, tacos, or quesadillas.

For the chicken: 
Cook 2 chicken breasts, cut into one inch pieces, on medium-high heat with 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil.  Add 2 tablespoons of chili powder or taco seasoning as the chicken cooks.

To assemble burritos:
Lay a flour tortilla on a plate and add whatever ingredients you prefer. Roll one side of the tortilla over the filling, then fold each end in before wrapping the other side of the tortilla over the top.  Place the burrito in a non-stick pan over medium-high heat with the folded edge down in order to seal the edges.  Cook until golden brown on the top and bottom.  Serve with burrito sauce, salsa and/or sour cream.
