When Darlene Deeg builds a burrito, she uses a bounty of beans, veggies, cheese and salsa. “My husband doesn't notice he's not getting meat,” she pens from Vernon, British Columbia. “Serve them with sour cream, chopped tomatoes and avocado. Leftovers make a great taco salad topping.”

"I wasnt impressed the first time I made these because I thought they were a little bland, but I added more taco seasoning and salsa the next time as well as made them into tacos rather than burritos. They were REALLY good after adding just a little more seasoning. I like to garnish with a little sour cream. VERY VERY GOOD."

"These were very good. I used cheddar rather than mozzarella and my whole family enjoyed them. We didn't miss the meat at all!"

"These were delicious! I didn't have any carrots or zucchini but used everything else. They were excellent! DH, who is usually a meat and potatoes kind of guy, said they tasted so good, and you couldn't even tell there wasn't any meat in them, and gobbled down 3 of these! Definately will make them again!"
