Meatless Monday – Black Bean Burrito Bake

A quick and easy meatless monday recipe. This dish can even be made up to 8 hours before baking – just store in the fridge and bring back to room temperature prior to baking. This recipe is one of my go-to weeknight meals.. easy to mix it up with different spices or by adding other ingredients like chicken!


1 (7-0z) can chipotle chiles in adobo sauce
1/2 cup reduced fat sour cream
1 (15-oz) can black beans, rinsed & drained
1 cup frozen whole-kernel corn, thawed
4 (8-inch) flour tortillas
cooking spray
1 cup bottled salsa
1/2 cup shredded jack cheese

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Remove 1 or 2 chiles from can, finely chop. Reserve remaining for another use.
3. Combine sour cream and chopped chiles in a bowl. Let stand for 10 minutes.

5. Spoon 1/2 cup bean mixture down the center of each tortilla. Roll up tortillas, place seam side down in a baking dish coated with cooking spray.
6. Spread salsa over tortillas and sprinkle with cheese.
