Roasted Veggie and Black Bean Baked Burritos

Here is another AWESOME recipe from the Aggie's Kitchen website. I know I have said it before--probably several times--but I love finding yummy, healthy vegetarian dinner ideas. Aggie always delivers!

Roasted Veggie and Black Bean Baked Burritos
From: Aggie's Kitchen website

2 sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed (small)
1 red pepper, cubed (small)
1 red onion cubed (small)
1 or 2 jalapenos, diced (if you want less heat sub another red pepper)
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp chili powder
salt and pepper to taste
2 tsp olive oil
1 can black beans, rinsed
handful chopped cilantro
squeeze of lime juice
shredded cheddar
Whole Wheat Tortillas or Wraps (burrito size–recommended:Ezekiel Sprouted Grain Tortillas)
nonstick olive oil spray

In a bowl, toss veggies in olive oil and season with spices. Place in large baking dish and roast in 425 degree oven for 20 minutes, tossing around halfway in between.

Let cool. Add to a bowl of rinsed black beans. Add cilantro and squirt of lime juice. Combine gently. At this point, mixture can be stored for later use. Warm wraps in microwave according to directions on package. Add two heaping tablespoons of vegetable and bean mixture to center of wrap. Top with shredded cheese. Fold over, fold in sides and continue to roll. Place on baking dish, seam side down and spray with nonstick spray or olive oil spray. Bake in 375 degree oven for about 15 minutes or until golden brown. Baking this way will make tortilla wrap crisp. For a softer burrito, spray burrito with nonstick spray, then wrap in aluminum foil and bake for same amount of time.

Makes about 6 burritos {with filling leftover}.

Aggie's Tip: Pre-make your burritos and wrap in aluminum foil. Keep in refrigerator for 3-4 days for a quick lunch or dinner!

The Result:
So filling and satisfying! We all loved these burritos, and I am so happy to have plenty of veggies leftover to make more burritos (ohhh...the veggies would be good in quesadillas, too). We garnished our burritos with some seasoned, mashed avocado and they were absolutely delicious!
