This can be very spicy even if you remove the seeds in the jalepeno.


For the filling
1 medium Onion; chopped fine
4 cloves Garlic; minced
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 12-oz cans Black beans
1 can Rotel tomatoes
2 teaspoons Cumin; ground
4 each jalapeno chilies; fresh, seeded and chopped
1/4 cup Cilantro; fresh chopped
12 7" Flour tortillas; (up to 8"), warmed
1 1/2 cups Monterey Jack Cheese; grated

Original recipe makes 6



Make the filling:

In a large heavy skillet cook the onion and the garlic in the oil over moderately low heat, stirring, until the onion is softened. Add the beans, and mash about half of them coarse with the back of a wooden spoon.

Add the Rotel tomatoes, the cumin, the chilies, and salt and black pepper to taste, simmer the mixture, stirring, for 3 to 5 minutes, or until it is thickened slightly, then stir in the cilantro.

Working with 1 warmed tortilla at a time and keeping the others covered, spread about 3 tablespoons of the filling down the center of each tortilla and roll the tortillas, enclosing the filling but keeping the ends open.

Arrange the burritos, seam sides down, in one layer in a baking dish, sprinkle them with the Monterey Jack cheese, and bake them, covered with foil, in the middle of a preheated 350F. oven for 10 minutes. Serve the burritos with the guacamole and the salsa.

Makes 12 burritos, serving 6.


Be careful with the heat. Do not add spicy rotel tomatoes, and then leave the jalepeno seeds in. It will hurt your mouth.
