Veggie Burrito Recipe

By Amy Bailey — July 10, 2017

Happy #meatlessmonday with this veggie packed burrito inspired by @lalobasbakery on #30a – we couldn’t get enough of this deliciousness while at Blue Mountain Beach so we decided to try it at home using fresh summer veggies and @mariaandricardos chili tortillas from Whole Foods Market.

3/4 cup chopped onion

2 tsp vegetable oil

1/2 tsp ground cumin

To warm tortillas place in the oven preheated at 400 degrees. Let warm for about 2 minutes, place warm tortillas on work surface. Place Monterey jack cheese (or vegan cheese) down center of tortilla.
