Vegetarian Burrito

This vegetarian burrito makes an easy meal for Meatless Monday’s or any day for that matter.  It’s perfect for the busy weeknight meal when your too tired to cook.  Even easier if you happen to have leftover rice in the fridge.

You must have those days when you just don’t feel like cooking a large meal. I know I do, maybe too many of them.

These burritos are so fresh and full of mouth-watering flavor! They were a huge hit with my family. So much so, they have requested I put them in my rotation.

Vegetarian Burrito - cilantro lime rice in a white bowl

Just add 1/4 cup cilantro, lime zest, and juice to the cooked rice and mix well. If it’s leftover rice reheat before adding cilantro and lime. Taste the rice and season with salt and pepper if needed.

You can also use brown rice if you prefer.

For the Pico de Gallo add the diced tomatoes, red onion, jalapeno, lime juice, and cilantro to a bowl and mix to combine. Refrigerate until ready to use.

Vegetarian Burrito - flour tortilla on a wooden cutting board with the beans, cheese, sour cream, avocados, and rice placed in the center

Warm the beans. I used a 15-ounce can black beans because I prefer them over refried pinto beans (use whichever you prefer).

Warm tortillas just enough to make folding and rolling easier. You can do this in the microwave for about 10 to 12 seconds.

Lay a flour tortilla on a flat surface. Layer 1/4 of the beans, cheese, cilantro lime rice, avocado, and sour cream.

That’s it and dinner is on the table!

    Some variation of this is on our table at least once a week. I’m digging the cilantro lime rice idea! Does it actually work better with leftover rice, or does it soak up more flavor if you add it just after cooking? I’m terrible at cooking rice, but I’ll give it a go for this. Looks yummy! 🙂

      I find it to work about the same. I usually heat the rice before adding the cilantro and lime. Thanks for stopping by, Martie!
