Black Bean Burrito Bake

This is sure to become a family favorite!  Recipe serves 4.

What you’ll need:

  • 1 chipotle chile in adobo sauce**
  • 1/2 cup fat-free Greek yogurt
  • 1 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup frozen whole-kernel corn, thawed
  • 4 (8-inch) flour tortillas
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese

What you’ll do:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Chop chile and combine in small bowl with Greek yogurt.  Let stand 10 minutes.
  • Place half of the beans in a food processor; process until finally chopped (or mash with a fork).
  • Add the chopped (or mashed) beans, remaining beans and corn to the Greek yogurt mixture.
  • Spoon 1/2 cup bean mixture down the center of each tortilla.  Roll up tortillas and place seam side down in baking dish (11 x 7) that’s been coated with cooking spray.
  • Spread salsa over tortillas and sprinkle with cheese.
  • Cover and bake for 20 minutes or until thoroughly heated.

**  Chipotle chiles are found canned.  Small amounts are usually used so freeze the remaining chiles individually in plastic bags.  Simply thaw a bag when you need a chile.
