Total calories per serving: 310

Method: Preheat your oven to 350°F/180°C/Gas mark 4. Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the sliced peppers at a moderately high heat until softened and starting to brown. Remove from pan and put to one side. Lower the heat and cook the onions and garlic until soft. Add the cumin (and some chilli powder if you like it hotter – fresh cilantro/coriander leaves are good in this too) and cook for another minute or two. Meanwhile, add half a cup of water to the beans and whizz them to a pulp in a blender. Stir the beans into the onion mixture and cook until thick (a minute or two).

Burrito before rolling

Spread the bean mixture over the tortillas, not quite to the edges, then sprinkle the peppers, corn and cheese over the top, reserving a little of the cheese. Roll the tortillas up into cylinders and put onto a baking sheet. Sprinkle the reserved cheese over them and bake in the oven for around 10 minutes, until the cheese has melted and the edges are slightly brown.
