Instructions
  1. Warm the tortillas following the package instructions. Meanwhile, make the filling. Heat the oil in a large frying pan, add the onion, garlic and peppers and cook over a medium heat, stirring, for 3 minutes until they begin to soften. Add the red chili pepper (if using) and the ground cumin and stir for 1 minute.
  2. Put the red kidney beans onto a plate and lightly crush with a fork, then add to the frying pan together with the corn and chopped tomato. Stir in the tomato and chili sauces and the water and continue to cook gently for about 4 minutes. Stir in the cilantro.
  3. Serve the hot bean mixture, lettuce, cheese and yogourt in separate bowls for everyone to help themselves. To assemble a burrito, place some lettuce in the middle of a tortilla, spoon some of the bean mixture on top, add some grated cheese and top with a dollop of yogourt. Roll up and eat immediately.
Recipe Notes

Variation: For a spicier version, include the seeds of the fresh chili pepper or add some chopped jalapeño peppers that you can buy in a jar at supermarkets.
