Bean Burritos

Bean Burritos

This is a North Park Community Garden staple recipe. It’s so good whatever the weather and can be cooked in one pan outside.


Dice onions and fry in olive oil

When soft add chopped peppers and fry for a few minutes.

Add chipotle paste, tomatoes and beans and simmer for 5 mins.  Add spinach and allow to wilt.

Squish rice in the packets to break it up and then add to the pan.

When the rice is hot an cooked add coriander to service.

Place a spoonful of the rice and bean mix on a wrap.  Top with salsa and cheese. Fold and eat – be careful, if the wraps aren’t folded perfectly it may dribble down your chin!
