Guacamole and Black Bean Burritos

  • Author: Erin Alderson
  • Yield: 2

Ingredients

Guacamole

  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 1/4 cup minced red onion (see note)
  • 1/4 cup minced cilantro
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 lime

Burrito

  • 2 large whole wheat flour tortillas
  • 1/2 cup cooked brown rice
  • 1/2 cup cooked black beans, drained and rinsed if using canned
  • 1/3 cup shredded Cheddar or Monterey jack cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded lettuce
  • 3 tablespoons minced red onion

Instructions

  1. To make guacamole, cut avocado in half around the pit and spoon out the avocado into a bowl. Add in the onion, cilantro, garlic, and salt. Cut the lime in half and squeeze 1 to 2 tablespoons of lime juice over the guacamole and stir. Taste and adjust salt and lime juice as needed.
  2. Spread about 1/4 to 1/3 cup guacamole in the center of a tortilla. Layer half the rice, beans, cheese, lettuce, and onions on top of the guacamole. Roll into a burrito (see note) and tuck in the ends.
  3. Heat a grill pan or panini press over low heat and place the burritos seam side down. Place a weight on top and let cook until tortilla is brown and crisp, 3 to 5 minutes on each side. Serve with remaining guacamole or salsa.

Notes

Tips & Tricks: I prefer to use red onions in my guacamole as I like the strong flavor of onions. If you’re looking for a more subtle onion flavor, try white or sweet onions.
