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 on my rotation.

Just add cilantro, lime zest and juice to the rice and mix well. If it’s leftover rice reheat before adding cilantro and lime.

Warm the beans. I used black beans because I prefer them over refried pinto beans. (use which ever you prefer) Layer beans, cheese, sour cream, avocado and rice.

Yum! I love cilantro lime rice. I almost always get the vegetarian burritos at Chipotle and these remind me of those! Now I’m hungry! Stopping by from Friendship Friday. Hope you have a great weekend!

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! 🙂

This looks delicious. I love any type of burrito! Thank you so much for linking up to Share With Me. I hope to see you again tomorrow for another great roundup! #sharewithme

Great idea to put cilantro lime rice in the burrito with the beans. I’m going to have to make these one of these Fridays during Lent. Thanks for sharing with Small Victories Sunday Linkup. Pinning to our linkup board and hope you found some great posts to visit this week!
