Add guacamole and chips to this hearty vegetarian dish for an easy Mexican meal.
We have had these many times over the years. Always great. Sometimes I add some diced avocado.
That's a bad reason to give the recipe two stars. The recipe clearly calls for ground chipotle.
these are really good! husband even commented!! sautéed green pepper and onion before adding beans. threw in cilantro near the end. healthy too!! very filling.
They are called chipotle because they have chipotle pepper in them. It's not trying to be a copy of Chipotle Mexican Grill.
These are wonderful. I did make a couple of changes based on previous reviews. First, I added some chopped onion to the garlic and also 1/8 tsp grd. cumin. Instead of 1/3 c. water I added 1 8oz. can no salt added tomato sauce and only about 1/4 c. water. My husband, who is not typically fond of bean burritos loved them so much that he decided to take leftovers for lunch the next day. It was a home run!!
Good recipe but misleading calling them Chipotle as they don't use kidney beans
Very good! We will be making this recipe again!!
Quick, filling, tasty. I made the recipe as written (adding an ear of corn for some vegetable loading). I felt the bean mixture needed a bit more flavor- either more chipotle chili powder, tabasco or some other spice. I would certainly make this again- as a vegetarian meal, it was filling and satisfying.
My family really liked this as a quick, meatless meal during the week. I didn't have chipotle chili powder, so I use reg chili powder & cumin spice (as others suggested). I added @ 1/2 cup salsa and added the diced to atoms to beans mixture at end. Will make this again
I like this recipe w/shredded lettuce and chopped, fresh tomatoes and guacamole. I also sprinkle chopped, green onions on top.
This was tasty and quick and easy to make. I used chipotle chile sauce instead of powder, made smaller burritos with the Trader Joes mini tortillas and skipped the lettuce and sour cream. It went really well with homemade guacamole and chips. I will definitely make this again. My fiance enjoyed it as well.
A very quick and easy meal. I thought the burritos were very flavorfule and not too spicy. I followed the recipe exactly, except I substituted greek yogurt for the sour cream. I ate it with a tossed salad. Very fulling.
A good solid reciipe for the daily menu genre. Added chicken to it and omitted the kidney beans. A hot salsa made it great!! This would be a great recipe to serve for the gang when they are gathered at your home for a game.
My family and I love this recipe. It's quick, easy, healthy and inexpensive. We add an extra can of beans and 1/3 more spices. We also use whole grain tortillas. It's fast and perfect every time.
I ended up adding salt, pepper and part of the cheese to the beans to give them a bit more flavor, but all in all, this is a really solid, flavorful recipe.
Easiest meal I've made in a long time! I had chipotle peppers in sauce left over, so I chopped one up and added some sauce in place of the chili powder. Fantastic dinner!
These were just okay. I used the chipotle chili powder and they were way too hot for my husband. I didn't mind the heat because otherwise they would have been bland.
This was good. My family is not really a go meatless family, but they liked it. I spread the leftovers on a tortilla and baked it like a pizza, and it was really good. I would even make it into quesadillas.
Awesome. Added some chopped avocado. Definitely a keeper.
I just made this and it was GREAT! I got five burritos out of the bean mixture. I also used 3 garlic cloves and it wasn't overpowering and gave it a great flavor. Fast and versatile!
These made for a good family meal... probably wouldn't make it for dinner guests. :)
I really liked this recipe as an easy weeknight recipe. I had it both as a burrito and in nachos, both were good. It was very fast to put together and also very versatile with what you may or may not have at hand.
My family enjoyed this recipe. Fast and easy to make. I have made this twice within the last week. This is definitely a healthy go to recipe in a flash.
I don't know how this recipe is getting such good reviews. Not good!
My meat-eater husband found this recipe. we both loved it. He cooked it and I'm sure he added some extra spices, but not sure which. I added avocado to mine. We'll make this a regular dish at our house.
This is an all-time favorite recipe of mine. I've made it several times now, and it's delicious even as leftovers! I add about half a chopped onion to the bean mixture for more flavor and it's absolutely delicious. Definitely a must have recipe.
We are adding more vegetarian meals to our diet, and this was a great addition. Quick and easy, very good flavor. I served with a side of Spanish rice and chips and guacamole.
I made this last night and my husband and I were totally amazed. We used the bean mixture as a quesadilla filling and put the green onion, tomato and cheese on top and then grilled in the quesadilla maker. Served with sour cream, quacamole and salsa with a side of spanish rice. My husband is having the leftovers for lunch today.
This recipe is a keeper for us. My husband and I really liked it and it was easy to fix. We will be having this again.
My husband and I thought these were delicious. We're trying to eat meatless a couple of times a week and these will definitely be on the list for future meals. The spice level is perfect and the combo of black and red kidney beans made them nice and filling. I added a bit of guacamole and served these with a green salad.
This recipe has become a regular in our dinner repertoire! We've made it for guests and everyone enjoys it. The mashed bean concoction with chili powder is the novel aspect of this recipe and turns out delicious. Often we'll saute some chicken breasts / thighs to add to the burrito.
This was a quick and easy recipe. Too give it a little more spice you can use pepper jack cheese. I used a potato masher to mash the beans. I will definitely make this again.
My husband and I absolutely love this dish! We make it almost every other week. The receipe is great, but we always add Goya yellow rice and make grilled red oninon and green peppers mixed with a pinch of salt and fresh squeezed lime. Super yummy! Highly recommend.
SO good!!! I feel like you're definitely not missing the beef or chicken in this dish; the assortment of beans, and the good flavors for sure make up for it. Another keeper!
I've made this recipe several times and it's always good and fast. This time I used corn tortillas and fried them in 1 teaspoon of canola oil flat, added the bean mixture, folded the tortillas, and cooked until crisp on both sides. Adding the fillings after it was cooked. It was yummy. A real go to vegetarian recipe.
Excellent for a quick, week night meal. My kids loved it. I made it exactly like the recipe said. I served it with a rice pilaf. This one is a keeper.
I doubled this recipe to feed 10 people and they loved it. Doubled amount of chipotle chili powder to add more spice and heat, and added poached shredded chicken breast. Made with homemade tortillas and fruit salad.
These were quite delicious. I substituted whole wheat tortillas and added some ground beef and chopped avocado. We also omitted the sour cream, simply because we didn't have any. I would definitely make them again.
Easy to make, and super delicious. Made exactly as directed. Will definitely make again!
Delicious, as well as quick and easy, although I am not so great at putting the burritos together so they look nice, which means that everyone assembles their own in my house. ;) Due to ingredients I had on hand, I subbed pinto beans for the kidneys, bottled chipotle salsa for the purchased fresh (so they were double chipotle'd), canned tomatoes for the fresh, and nonfat Greek yogurt for the sour cream. I also used whole-wheat tortillas in place of reduced-fat plain. This is a keeper.
Great meatless recipe for a weeknight meal.
This was a flavorful, quick dinner. The chipotle chili powder is a must as it has a very different flavor from regular chili powder; it adds heat to the beans. I added alittle mashed avocado to each burrito and it was great!
I used regular chile powder and husband and I just fixed one burrito each. Good flavor and easy. We put in more sour cream than one tablespoon as they were a little dry. A definite repeat.
Love it! My husband and I think they are the best homemade bean burritos we have ever had! The smokey flavor and the nutty flavor from the the toasted garlic make these far superior to canned refried beans.YUMMMM
Oh these were GREAT!!! The bean mixture was super SPICY but was perfect paired with cold sour cream. Yummy! Yummy! Yummy!
Great flavor. Super easy to prepare. I used a mix of kidney and pinto beans and served it with fresh salsa.
this is so simple to make. I do add a little chili pepper to, to make it a little more spicy!! Love it
This is one of my favorites! It's so simple and delicious. It's great as leftovers too. I've done this when it's just my husband and I, and I've made it for football games. Could easily be made the night before.
This is a good recipe. Nothing to write home about, but good for an easy weeknight meal with some Mexican Rice. I might keep this "on the list" because my husband could even whip these up!
I LOVED this burrito alternative! I forgot to buy the kidney beans, but I substituted lentils instead. I used whole-wheat burritos, but they ripped and were messy, so I wouldn't use them again for this recipe. The homemade guacamole was out of this world. We had the Baked Lays tortillas to dip. No one would guess that the whole meal was vegetarian and lower in fat!!
Good everyday family recipe! Increased the garlic, added ground cumin and oregano, used 4 T. salsa, and subbed shredded cabbage for the lettuce (good crunch!). Good heat, but not overpowering. This serves 4, not 6, IMHO. Will make again.
I'm not a vegetarian in the slightest, but I love Mexican food. This recipe was so good! I would definitely recommened this as a light, easy recipe for any day of the week.
Yum! This was really good, but I did make some changes: I doubled the garlic and I used pinto beans rather than kidney beans. I replaced the chipotle powder with a mix of ancho chile pepper, chile powder and cayenne pepper but I doubled the amount recommended by the magazine's recipe. I also added cumin and oregano. I replaced the cheese with 2% sharp cheddar and instead of reduced fat tortillas (which had partially hydrogenated oil) I used whole wheat tortillas. Instead of having guacamole and tortilla chips on the side, as the magazine suggested, I sliced up fresh avocado and put it on the burrito. I will definitely make this again with the changes... its perfect for an easy weeknight meal!
I made these for SuperBowl Sunday to satisfy the boyfriend's craving for something "fun" and my desire for something healthy while we watched the game. We both thought these were tasty, and one was very filling. I didn't halve the recipe so I'm glad to hear that the leftovers reheat well. We contemplated using the leftovers for nachos but we'll probably just have burritos again later this week.
Good weeknight recipe. I halved to recipe for 3-4 servings. I added 1/4 cup thawed corn and 1/4 cup of roasted chicken breast. The sour cream was a nice touch. My family loved it. This will be a regular weeknight meal at our house.
Made with canned chili in adobo instead of chili powder. Very good and simple. Would probably make a double recipe next time to be sure there was enough for leftovers. I would have rated this 4-stars, but I don't think I would serve bean burritos to guests, no matter how good the recipe.
This recipe was great! It was easy and fast! I would defiantly recommend it for a weeknight meal.
Always thought beans were boring as the primary protein. So wrong. Super fast and easy. My two kids 2 & 4 loved them too. Have also used the bean recipe as a layer in a chicken enchilada casserole. Very versatile. Love it.
We really liked these! The spice was just enough and the toppings really made them perfect. Instead of serving chips and guacamole as suggested in the magazine print of this recipe, we put about 1-2 TBS of guacamole inside the burritos. We had leftovers and they were great even cold the next day. These burritos reminded my husband of an "kicked up 7-layer burrito" (from Taco Bell....his favorite in college).
I loved this for a quick and easy weeknight meal. The leftovers were better than then we first ate these.
Very flavorful, healthy, and great for a weeknight. We used iceberg lettuce cups instead of the tortillas -- the crunch was actually an added bonus, since we were aiming to eliminate some carbs more than anything. We'll be making this lots.
Pretty tasty and really easy weeknight meal. I added a bit more chipotle and added some cumin. Would be good with some jalapenos too I bet! I used chopped tomato in place of salsa. I did an avocado / sour cream mash on top and it was delicious. Worth a try.
This recipe is really good. Nice quick weekday meal. I recommend using hard tacos to add some texture and crunch instead of flour tortillas. I also used a hot salsa b/c we like spicy! I think adding spicy salsa was the key b/c it gave it another element. This would also be an excellent appetizer served with tortilla chips. Definately will make this again. (rated it three stars b/c it's not outstanding but a solid recipe)
Reheats well, good flavor, inexpensive ingredients, double it for leftovers. The filling would be good in a five-layer dip, too. What I did differently: - I added one can of kernal corn for texture and depth of flavor - There wasn't enought chipotle flavor for me, so I added 1/4 c. chipotle sauce (you can find it in the Hispanic foods section of the supermarket) - Replaced scallions for onions -
These were really flavorful and easy to make. My husband loved them and I will be making them again. I didn't rate this higher simply because it is an everyday meal.
I give this three stars because it is a "good, solid recipe." It's easy and fast and perfect for a weeknight meal. The flavors are very good but next time I would add some cumin to give it even more spice.
The chipotle flavor was wonderful - flavorful without over powering. The leftovers were great for lunches - I individually wrapped the burritos with the beans and tortillas then added the toppings after reheating them. A nice departure from my usual sandwich.
These burritos are awesome! My boyfriend loved them so much that he ate 5 of them!
