Ingredients
  

  • 1 tsp canola oil
  • 1 medium zucchini grated
  • 1 tsp garlic minced
  • 1 16-oz can refried beans
  • 1/3 cup salsa
  • 6 Tbsp cheddar cheese shredded
  • 6 whole wheat flour tortillas
  • 1 avocado sliced, optional

Instructions
 

  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add grated zucchini and garlic to pan. Sauté for 5 minutes. Add refried beans and salsa to pan and cook until heated through.
  • Place about 1/3 to 1/2 cup of filling on one side of tortilla. Sprinkle with one tablespoon of cheese. Fold in the sides of the tortilla and then roll into a burrito. Set aside and repeat with remaining tortillas until all of the filling is used.
  • Wipe out the skillet used for the filling and spray with cooking spray. Put over medium heat then place burrito in pan and brown for a minute on each side. This step is optional and could be skipped if preferred.
  • Serve burritos with sliced avocado and salsa.

Notes

Chef’s Notes:
  • Use the large holes on a cheese grater to quickly grate the zucchini.
  • Make a double batch of these easy burritos and freeze the extras for a quick meal when you need it.
