Big Vegetarian Burritos!

I got the inspiration for these delicious burritos from watching The Schuerman Show on youtube.  Sam is a beauty guru and her husband, Jay is a food enthusiast and they have a little man, Phoenix.  They post daily vlogs of their life and always seem to be eating something delicious!

A while back I had come across the episode where they had eaten these huge burritos and wanted to make some of my own.  I hope you enjoy this delicious recipe, and feel free to add or create your own kind of burrito!

To make this recipe, you will need:

A little olive oil, plain not extra virgin
1 large onion, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
2 jalapenos, chopped (If you want less spicy, add one or no spice don't add any at all, your choice!)
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can corn, drained
A little salt
Any toppings of your choice, I used:
Sharp cheddar
Sour cream

Heat oil in a large frying pan; I used my deep one, this recipe makes leftovers! (Unless your feeding an army!)
Preheat oven on a low broil.
Cook onion, red pepper and jalapeno pepper until soft, about 6-7 minutes on medium heat.
Add beans and corn, season with salt and heat through.
Heat your tortillas up a little, either in the microwave or in the oven before you preheat it. This makes them a little bit easier to work with.
Place tortillas on a baking sheet.
Spoon some of the veggie mixture into the heated tortilla and sprinkle with cheese.
Broil for 1 minute or less, until cheese is melted.
Top with all your goodies and enjoy!

Mark felt the need to take a picture of me, so I added it!

I love the gorgeous colors of everything mixed together!

I hope everyone enjoys this healthier version of a meat burrito. Using all veggies gives that extra fibre and vitamins that we need and so many less calories than some greasy meat!
