Calypso Burritos Recipe

Calypso Burritos Recipe

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.”
