Black Bean, Green Chile and Caramelized Red Onion Chimichanga

Black Bean, Green Chile and Caramelized Red Onion ChimichangaThis recipe is a new favorite. It’s quick, easy, fairly healthy and so delicious. We had “make your own burrito night” recently – this is my creation. I love the creamy beans with the flavorful chiles and caramelized onion. It goes together nicely with the extra sharp cheddar, salsa verde, sour cream, and guacamole. I am looking forward to making it for lunch this week.

How to Make a Black Bean, Green Chile, and Caramelized Red Onion Chimichanga

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the red onions and sauté, stirring frequently, for 20 minutes or until caramelized. Season onions with sea salt to taste and set aside.

Heat a grill pan over medium heat then coat with cooking spray.

Layer the flour tortilla with sour cream, sharp cheese, black beans, caramelized onions, green chiles, a bit of salsa verde, green onions, and cilantro (reserving a little of each for the garnish); fold in the sides of the tortilla then roll.

Place in the grill pan or skillet, seam side down for 5-7 minutes or until golden brown. Flip over and grill the other side for an additional 4-5 minutes.

Serve with fresh guacamole, remaining green onions, cilantro, and cotija cheese if desired. Enjoy.
