This Mexican favourite's nutrient boost comes from the beans and the vegetables - feel free to add your own favourite variety of this fibre-rich legume.


Olive oil

1 tsp(s)

Uncooked onion(s)

1 small, chopped

Frozen mixed vegetables

½ package(s), thawed


1 tbsp(s), chopped or 1 tsp dried cilantro

Fat free no sugar canned refried beans

16 oz

Shredded reduced-fat Mexican-style cheese

½ cup(s)

Fat free flour tortilla(s)

8 oz, about 4 burrito-size tortillas

Fat free salsa

½ cup(s)


  1. Heat olive oil in a large nonstick skillet until it sizzles.
  2. Stir-fry onions, mixed vegetables and cilantro until crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside.
  3. Spread about 1/4 cup of refried beans in middle of each tortilla. Sprinkle grated cheese over beans, then top with about 1/4 cup of the cooked vegetables.
  4. Fold over each end of the burrito, then fold one side to the centre over the filling; then fold up the other side (like an envelope).
  5. Place one burrito on a plate and microwave at full power until cheese melts and beans are warm, about 2 minutes. It will take about 5 minutes to cook four burritos at once.
  6. Top each burrito with 2 tablespoons salsa and serve.
