Raspberry Chipotle Burritos

April McIver


This tasty little recipe was a gift from a friend. A bit smoky, a bit spicy, hearty and delicious. The original recipe called for 2 cans of beans, white rice, packaged tortillas and 1/4 cup of red wine vinegar. I substituted home cooked black beans, brown rice and homemade corn tortillas.

If you’re feeding carnivores, I’m told you can substitute cooked diced chicken for half the beans with good results. I made my batch vegetarian. The filling mix keeps well and makes an excellent salad topper, chip accompaniment or it’s great with a spoon.

How to Make Raspberry Chipotle Burritos


  • 1Heat oil in a very large skillet over medium low.
  • 2Add onions and garlic. Sprinkle over cumin and chili powder.
  • 3Cook, stirring once in a while, until onions are transparent and the whole mixture brings husbands and neighbors over to investigate what smells so incredible.
  • 4Add raspberries, mashed first if you want or break them up with the back of your spoon.
  • 5Add chipotle pepper with a few spoonfuls of the adobo sauce they were canned in.
  • 6Stir in beans and rice.
  • 7Simmer until heated through. I used freshly cooked rice and beans so they were already warm and this step only lasted 1-2 minutes.
  • 8Season to taste with salt, pepper and vinegar if desired.
  • 9Sprinkle over some chopped cilantro.
  • 10To assemble each burrito, spoon a bit of filling down the middle of a warmed tortilla. Top with a small amount of shredded monterey jack cheese and a bit of fat free sour cream or plain yogurt. Roll ‘em up and enjoy!
