Quick and Easy Veggie Burritos

by Missy Tippens

When I tried to figure out what to post about, I realized how little cooking I've done lately (beyond throwing a sandwich together or making my standbys of spaghetti or tacos or grilled chicken). So I went searching for photos of food in my phone. I had to look back to mid-June, right before our move. I found that I had made a quick and easy veggie burrito that turned out really good!

1/2 sweet onion, chopped
1 or 2 zucchini, chopped
1 can black beans
1/2 bag frozen corn (or open a can if you prefer)
tortillas (I use the low carb, high fiber ones)
grated cheddar cheese (or any kind of cheese)
Any other veggies you'd like to add


Sauté the onion in some olive oil until translucent.  Then add in the zucchini and cook until starting to get tender.


Add in the corn. Then once that's heated through, stir in the beans. Cook until heated.


Fill the tortilla and sprinkle on some cheese of your choice.


Serve with a little sour cream or salsa if you'd like. Enjoy! This is great for making dinner in just a few minutes.

    1. Thanks, Jan! It's nice to finally feel like I'm settling into a routine. Of course, I'm still unpacking a few boxes daily. But someday I'll get there! :)

  2. Welcome back, Missy! I have lots of your recipes and love them! I'm gonna try this one, but may have to add some browned turkey for DH who thinks all meals should include a meat! lol

    1. Meat would be great with this, Jackie! I can understand your husband's feeling. Sometimes I just need that extra protein. :)

    1. The heat is getting to me, too, Mary Cate. Some days, I just want things that are cool and light.

    2. I'm with you. The kids wanted home made pizza the other night and it was 105F at 7PM and I was NOT turning on the oven.

  4. Oh yum...and it would be easy to add in any in season veggies as inspired. Love this. Must pick up some black beans so I'll be prepared to make this up after I hit the farmer's market tomorrow. Glad you are settling in and almost unpacked.

    1. I always keep canned black beans and pinto beans in my pantry. And I try to keep bags of frozen corn, broccoli and green beans at all times. :)

  6. BTW, we did have one sign of normality last night. My daughter had a group of high school friends spend the night. Just like old times! :)

  7. MMMMMM, I love black beans. My husband doesn't care for them so we don't have them very much, but they have such a great flavor.
