Calypso Burritos

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.”

    This should have been a vegetarian's dream recipe, but something about it just didn't work for me--maybe the cumin. Not sure how I'm going to fix up all the leftovers so I don't end up wasting a lot of food.

    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 delicious! I will be making these burritos over and over again because they are so good for you...only 7 points on weightwatchers!

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

    I enjoyed this very much. We've been having one vegetarian day each week and this definitely worked for it.

    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!
