Ingredients

  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • ¼ cup low-sodium vegetable broth
  • ¾ teaspoon chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground turmeric
  • ⅛ teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • ¾ cup canned pinto beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast (optional)
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • 4 7- to 8-inch whole grain tortillas
  • 2 cups shredded lettuce or kale
  • ½ avocado, seeded, peeled, and sliced
  • ¼ to ½ cup salsa
  • Bottled hot pepper sauce (optional)

Instructions

  1. In a large saucepan cook onion in vegetable broth over medium heat 5 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally. Add chili powder, cumin, turmeric, and cayenne pepper (if using); cook and stir 1 minute more.
  2. Stir in corn and beans; cook 5 minutes or until heated through, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. If desired, stir in nutritional yeast. Season with salt.
  3. In a dry nonstick skillet over medium heat, warm tortillas one at a time 40 seconds or until warm and pliable, turning once. Cover with a damp cloth to keep warm.
  4. Spread ¼ of the bean mixture onto each tortilla just below the center. Top with ½ cup of lettuce, 2 or 3 slices avocado, and 1 to 2 tablespoons salsa. Fold bottom edge of each tortilla over filling. Fold in opposite sides; roll up tortilla. Place burritos, seam sides down, on a platter. Serve warm. If desired, pass hot pepper sauce.
