Adapted from Allrecipes's Delicious Black Bean Burritos
(where it was given 4.5 stars out of 966 reviews, so you know it's good)
2 packages of Cedar's Spinach Wraps (or your favorite wrap/burrito shell)
4 tbsp canola oil
1 large onion, chopped
1 bell pepper (I use yellow because it's healthiest), chopped
2 tsp diced garlic (or 4 cloves)
1 can of chipotle chilis in adobo sauce (or chopped jalapenos work too)
2 15 oz cans black beans (get the GOYA ones - lowest sodium content)
2 15 oz cans of diced tomatoes OR if you like spice, substitute one can for Rotel tomatoes with cilantro and lime - just be careful not to overdo the chipotles/jalapenos
6 oz low-fat cream cheese (neufchatel cheese)
low-fat sour cream to top
salsa to top
fresh cilantro to garnish
Heat oil in skillet. Add onion and bell pepper. Saute 5 minutes then add the garlic. Continue sauteeing until tender (I usually do a good 15 minutes as I prepare the rest of the recipe).
Add 2-3 chipotle peppers from the can, diced (or add jalapeno to taste). This is just to add a kick. Do not add the entire can of chipotle peppers - WAY too spicy.
|Chipotles in Adobo Sauce - Mexican Aisle|
|My fave wraps for this recipe.|
Add the tomatoes, drained. Stir. Simmer for however long you can; it will reduce down and become thicker.
Near the end, add the low-fat cream cheese, cut into chunks. Stir until it's melted and mixed in.
|This meal makes a ton so the sat. fat in the low-fat cream cheese isn't as bad as it looks.|
