Recipe - Vegetarian Burrito


Burrito is a Mexican dish. Different types of burritos are available at Mexican restaurants in the US. I haven't been to Mexico and can't compare with the authentic dishes available in Mexico. My comparisons are with respect to what I have tasted in the US.

In a lot of mexican restaurants, vegetarian burritos are served with refried beans and spanish rice. Burritos include bean, cheese, lettuce, tomato, olives, salsa, guacamole and sour cream. Spanish rice is also included some times.

I regularly make burritos at home because I can control the quantity and quality of ingredients. Burrito is very easy to make, if all the ingredients are available at home. I buy organic salsa, guacamole, beans and sour cream including tortilla though all of these can be prepared at home (call me lazy).


  • Tortilla - 1
  • Pinto beans(cooked) - 2 tablespoons
  • Salsa - 1 table spoon
  • Guacamole - 1 teaspoon
  • Sour cream - 1 teaspoon
  • Lettuce - 2 tablespoons
  • Tomato - 1 teaspoon
  • Olives - 1 teaspoon
  • Jalapenos - 1/2 teaspoon (optional)
  • Mexican cheese - 1 teaspoon


Warm tortilla on a pan, apply/add warm/hot pinto beans vertically in the center. Add cheese, lettuce, tomato, olives, jalapenos. Garnish with guacamole, salsa and sour cream.

Fold it from both the sides. Fold one side of the burrito to half, then fold the second side into half. Serve hot.

Preparation time: 5 minutes (if the ingredients are ready)
