Recipe: Kale Burritos

22 Apr

Kale burritos?  Am I crazy?  I wanted Mexican food, but we had some kale that we had to use, so I combined the two and it worked out pretty well.


  • 1 bunch kale, chopped
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 t ground cumin
  • 1/2 t Mexican oregano
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 can refried black beans
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 chipotle in adobo sauce, minced, plus some sauce
  • shredded cheese
  • whole wheat tortillas

Saute the onion in some olive oil until softened.  Add the garlic and the cumin and oregano and cook until fragrant.  Add the kale in bunches and wilt.  Squeeze lemon on top and cover to let kale cook.  Meanwhile, combine the sour cream and chipotle.  Add adobo sauce to taste (depending on how spicy you like it).  Also warm the beans up in a separate pan.  To assemble, warm the tortillas then pile on the beans, kale, cheese, and sour cream sauce.  Fold into a burrito and enjoy!

PS – I’m going to start italicizing all of the CSA ingredients in my posts.  I’m also italicizing ingredients I forage from my yard, like lemons, herbs, and soon peaches and tomatoes!
