Bean mix
  1. Heat oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add onion, garlic, chilli and capsicum and cook, stirring occasionally 3-4 minutes or until heated through.
  2. Add corn, kidney beans, cannellini beans and canned tomatoes, cook for a further 5 minutes, stirring until texture is soft and heated through. Fold through coriander and mint.
  1. To prepare guacamole, scrape out the avocado using a spoon (remove the stone first), mash in a plastic bowl with a fork and add a squeeze of lemon juice, this will stop avocado going brown.
  1. Prepare vegetables and cheese and place on a plate ready to serve.
Burritos can be prepared 2 ways:
Make it all up

  2. Bake burritos for 15-20 minutes or until cheese is golden, serve with guacamole, salsa, sour cream and salad leaves. 
Make your own
