  • Slice the tortilla in half and optional to place the burrito in the oven to cook for 10 minutes until lightly brown. Serve with our homemade chipotle sauce.


You can eat this burrito without heating it in the oven. Personally, I like when the tortilla is a little cooked on the outside.
You can simplify this recipe by using 1 cup of black beans and not adding in all of the spices and bean ingredients. This option is still flavorful because our homemade chipotle sauce that we will later add to the burrito has lots of flavor.
