Black Bean Burritos

Another family favorite! This is really fast and easy, the kids love it and it's vegetarian, so it's a good candidate for those nights when you want to plan a meatless supper (or if you're a vegetarian all the time, hey.).

2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 clove garlic, mined
half medium red onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
1 cup canned black beans, rinsed and drained
3 carrots, shredded
½ cup chopped broccoli
2 tbsp chili powder
1 tbsp ground cumin
¼ cup water
¼ cup red wine vinegar
1 tbsp brown sugar
8 soft tortillas, medium

In a large saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add garlic, onion and peppers; saute for about 5 minutes or until softened. Stir in beans, carrots, broccoli, chili powder, cumin, vinegar, water and brown sugar. Increase heat to high and cook for 5 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Place ½ cup bean mixture into middle of tortilla and fold all sides over to enclose. Serves 4.
