We heat the oil in our dutch oven and saute the onions on low heat for about 5 minutes. We then add the red pepper and saute for another 5 minutes until softened. We add the mushrooms and cook on medium-low heat until they have released their liquid and are tender. We continue with the garlic, sauteeing just for a minute, and then we add the cumin, salt and chile powder and cook for another minute. Finally, we add the black beans and tomatoes and simmer gently for 10 minutes more.

We make the burritos by heating the tortillas between dampened paper towels in the microwave for 20 seconds. For each burrito, we put some rice, the black bean mixture, cheese, squeeze of lime, avocado pieces, and salsa on a heated flour tortilla. Roll up any enjoy with a crisp green salad!
