Mexican food is a weekly staple in our household. Mark and I love enchiladas, nachos, taco salad…we always have the ingredients in! I made these burritos the first time for my husband (then boyfriend) in college. My family loves, his family loves them. This is my fool proof recipe that is delicious anytime of year when the Mexican food craving hits. Plus it’s super simple!
What You Will Need:
small onion, chopped
garlic, 3 cloves, diced
corn, 1/3 cup
green pepper, 1/3 cup
jalapeno, 1/2 of medium, chopped
olives, sliced, 1/4 cups
refried, black, or pinto beans, 1 can
1/4 cup salsa (or fresh tomatoes if you have them)
cumin, 2 teaspoons
chili powder, 2 teaspoons
garlic powder, 1 teaspoon
basil, 2 teaspoons
tarragon, 1 teaspoon
parsley, 2 teaspoons
oregano, 1 teaspoon
hot sauce, to taste
salt & pepper
buritto makings as needed (tortilla, cheese, spinach)
1. In a large pan, heat a little bit of oil and add onions. Cook until slightly tranlucent. Throw in the garlic and saute until you smell it. Then quickly add in the corn, pepper, jalapeno, and olives to prevent in from burning the garlic. Throw in some salt and pepper. Cook until veggies are soft but still have a “crunch”.

2. Next add in the beans, salsa, and all the seasoning through the oregano. Let the flavors marry together.
Add some hot sauce to kick up the spice!
3. Create your self a delish burrito and enjoy!
