Healthy and delicious black bean burritos with Hatch peppers

  • 2 or 3 Hatch peppers, sliced, lightly oiled and grilled
  • 1 large onion, sliced, lightly oiled and grilled
  • 4-5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2-3 teaspoons freshly squeezed lime juice
  • zest of one lime, zest the lime before you squeeze it.
  • 1/2 cup Hatch cheddar, or other style of cheese, skip if you are vegan
  • 1 can organic black beans, drained, or you can of course make your beans from dried.

Hatch pepper burritos

  1. Drain the black beans and set aside. Turn on the grill to medium heat.
  2. While the grill is heating, cut the peppers in half and scrape out the seeds. Slice the onions about 1/2 inch thick. Paint the onions and peppers on both sides with a light coat of oil with a pastry brush. I have a silicone pastry brush which I love. It's easy to clean and works great.
  3. Place your onions and peppers directly on the hot grates. It will only take a few minutes on each side so don't stray far from the grill. Once they are nicely browned set them aside on a cutting board to cool.
  4. Heat your olive oil in a large saute pan and grate you garlic into the oil. Then add your spices, cumin, chili powder and oregano, and saute until fragrant. This will only take a minute or two. In the meantime, chop the peppers and onions and add them to the pan to heat up along with the drained black beans. Saute for about 2-3 minutes until everything is heated thoroughly. Just before serving add the lime zest and juice.

Burritos with black beans and hatch peppers

Hatch peppers are actually a trademarked pepper that grows north to south along the Rio Grande. The soil and weather in this area give these peppers their unique flavor. You can only find them in late summer in eastern grocery stores. Of course, any sort of pepper will work for this recipe but Hatch are truly worth seeking out. They do come in a mild variety all the way to smoking hot, so check with the produce manager to be sure of what you are getting.

This recipe is designed to be fast, healthy and super delicious. I recognize that not everyone has my passion for real food and lengthy involved recipes. This one is easy enough for the busy work night and can be made ahead of leaving for the soccer field!
