Delicious Homemade Burritos: Enchilada style

I have made these burritos with an enchilada twist for about a year now and they are a favorite in our house. Although this is the general recipe I follow each time, I tend to try new variations to keep recipes fresh. Creativity in the kitchen is a must if you cook on a regular basis.


Sautee the following in a skillet that is well oiled:

  • 1/2 organic yellow onion diced

  • 1/2 organic green bell pepper diced

  • 1 organic jalapeno pepper diced [without seeds]

Season to taste with chili powder, salt, pepper and garlic powder

In two separate sauce pans with boiling water cook until soft one serving of quinoa and 2 cups of dried beans that have soaked overnight [I prefer black beans, but you can use whatever you prefer].

In an oiled casserole dish, place four large flour tortillas side by side. Fill the tortillas with the sauteed vegetables, beans and quinoa. For freshness, I like to then squeeze a little lime juice over each tortilla filling and sprinkling on some chopped cilantro. Fold the tortillas and hold in place with a toothpick. Cover the wraps with either red or green enchilada sauce.

Cheese [optional] can also be sprinkled on top of the burritos enchilada style.

Put in an oven that has been pre-heated at 400 degrees. It usual takes between 15 and 20 minutes for the sauce and cheese to be bubbling hot. Remove, let stand for 5 minutes and enjoy!!!
