- Cranberry Bean Burritos
This recipe is good for six servings and takes a total of thirty five minutes to prepare.
Have the following ingredients ready: two cups of tomato sauce, a teaspoon of cumin, six burrito-size whole-wheat tortillas, two tablespoons of vegetable oil, two-thirds cup of chopped onion, two cups of mashed cooked cranberry beans, three-fourths cup of chopped cherry tomatoes, a cup or four ounces of shredded cheddar cheese, a half cup of shredded lettuce, and a coarsely chopped Hass avocado.
Combine the tomato sauce, hot sauce, and cumin in a small saucepan. Warm over low heat. Then, preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Place the tortillas in a large covered baking dish. Place them in the oven to warm as you prepare the tortilla feeling. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add in the onions and cook until tender but not brown. Add in the beans and a quarter cup of the tomato sauce mixture. Cook until heated through while stirring and mashing to blend the ingredients well. Afterwards, remove the tortillas from the oven but leave the oven turned on. Spoon about one-third cup of the bean mixture and put on the center of every tortilla. Top with the tomatoes, cheese, lettuce, and avocado. Fold the tortillas neatly. Fold the bottom over the filling, then the two sides, and then the top. Arrange the burritos on an ungreased baking sheet. Put the seam side down. Bake the burritos for fifteen minutes or until the burritos are heated through. Serve with the remaining tomato sauce on the side.
