Veggie Burritos

I have a new love in my life – burritos! There is something so satisfying and filling about a big, hearty burrito.

I just discovered these wheat free, gluten free tortillas and they are actually soft and they taste good! I have a feeling there are many more burrito creations on the horizon 🙂

Food for Life tortillas.

Makes about 10 burritos (lunch for the week!)

Ingredients:
2 packages food for life tortillas (or whatever tortillas you like)
2 cups cooked brown rice
1 can black beans
1 15 oz can fire roasted, crushed tomatoes
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 yellow onion, diced
1 zucchini, sliced longways into quarters then sliced thin
1 teaspoon minced garlic
2 teaspoons Cumin
1/4 teaspoon Cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon Chili powder
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/4 cup chopped cilantro

Toppings:
Guacamole or avocado
Cheese of your choice
Red onion

Heat about a tablespoon of olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the peppers and onions and sauté until they start to brown. Set them aside in a bowl if you want to serve them separately, otherwise proceed with them in the pan.
Next, add another tablespoon of olive oil in the pan and add the zucchini, garlic and spices. Sauté over medium-high heat for about 3-5 minutes. Add the crushed tomatoes, rice and beans and heat through. Stir in cilantro.
Heat tortillas up either on the stove top of the microwave and start filling. Top with guacamole, red onion, cheese or your topping of choice.
