Butternut Squash Black Bean Burritos (they are tastier than they sound!)


Butternut Squash Black Bean Burritos

These burritos are a filling and veggie filled burrito and taste mighty fine!   The filling can be used to top salads, inside a quesadilla, in tacos, or of course in a burrito.  If you are wondering why there is a lot of burritos action going on in this here blog, it is because I have a little freezer session post coming up for ya complete with 5 different freezer burritos.  You won’t want to miss it!!  You can thank Oh She Glows for this fabulous recipe!  For a gluten free version make the filling a topping for brown rice or salad.  Or use gluten free tortillas-I have yet to find one I like.

O.k. on to the butternut squash burritos at hand.  The first thing you need to do is roast your butternut squash.  I just bought mine at Costco pre-cut-it is worth the time saved in my opinion.  I then drizzled it with olive oil and sprinkled it with salt and pepper.  Pop it in the oven at 425 and let it start caramelizing-yum.

Meanwhile chop your onion, red pepper, and mince your garlic.  Fry the onion and garlic on medium heat until the onion is see through and soft.

Add in your peppers, black beans, and cooked rice.

When the butternut squash is cooked through take it out of the oven.  Add 1 1/2 cups of roasted squash to the pan and mix everything together.  Then for the best part sprinkle on the cheese.  Sorry for the super blurry picture-but you get the idea.

You can add all kinds of lovely toppings to this burrito; spinach, sunflower seeds, avocado, guacamole, salsa, more cheese, sour cream, you name it!

    How do items like avocado, guacamole, sour cream freeze? We love burritos and it would be great to have some easy whole foods items in the freezer. Thanks for the recipes!

      Hi Laura! No take out the spinach when you freeze them. It doesn’t have a great consistency unthawed. I add all the topping kind of stuff after I unfreeze them. So top it with sour cream and avacdo after you unfreeze them.
