Pinto Bean Burritos

  • Author: Aggie Goodman


  • 1 can pinto beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 sweet onion, chopped
  • 2 peppers (anaheim, cubanelle, poblano or jalapeno) of your choice
  • squeeze of fresh lime juice or a couple splashes of red wine vinegar
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • handful of cilantro, torn
  • whole wheat tortillas
  • shredded cheddar
  • salsa (here’s my favorite homemade salsa)


  1. In a medium bowl, combine beans, onion, pepper, lime or vinegar, salt, pepper and cilantro.
  2. Using a fork, gently mash all the ingredients until they just start to come together.
  3. Spoon your filling into the center of your tortilla, topping the filling with shredded cheese and a tablespoon or two of salsa.
  4. Tuck in the sides of your tortilla and tightly roll up your burrito.
  5. Wrap in aluminum foil and bake in 400 degree oven for 15 minutes.
