If you’re a fan of 0Mexican cuisine, then you surely know about burritos. If not, no worries, I’ll tell you everything you need to know about this wonderful dish. A burrito is basically a flour tortilla wrapped around a delicious mix of fillings, usually consisting of meat and fried beans. Ever since the recipe gained popularity, tons of other variations were born and now a typical burrito would also include some corn, rice, salsas, lettuce, cheese, guacamole, and more.

A burrito is pretty similar to shawarma or gyros, but the fillings differ a bit.

A great thing about burritos and other types of tortilla wraps is that they’re super easy to transport. This makes them ideal if you want to prepare your lunch ahead of time and then take it with you to work or school. Efficiency at its best! 😉 Plus, they’re super filling and versatile. You can fill your burrito with all your favorite ingredients, then add some salsas and you’re good to go. Or, even better, you can use whatever leftover ingredients you have at hand. Nothing should go to waste!

So if you’re willing to prepare a burrito for the next time you’ll have a full day at school or work, I have prepared this useful list full of awesome recipes! You will find plenty of vegan burrito recipes here, from potato burritos to breakfast burritos or even a burrito casserole.
