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.
Add the pice de gallo and lettuce, roll and wrap. That’s it and dinner is on the table!
