Vegetarian Bean Burritos

It’s Family Dinner time: Burrito Style. πŸ˜€

My husband and his family love to get their protein from meat. However, I felt like it was my job to show them how good a vegetarian meal can be and how they wouldn’t miss the meat.

I served these creamy & crunchy, spicy yet cool, bean burritos.


  • chopped fresh tomatoes
  • spinach
  • sliced green onions
  • non-fat plain Chobani Greek yogurt (or light sour cream)
  • reduced fat sharp cheddar cheese
  • salsa

I hope you enjoy this recipe! And if you have any meat-lovers in your family, this is just the meal for you to make for them to show them that they won’t miss it one bit. πŸ˜€

    1. πŸ˜€ I think quacamole is amazingly good. But, I think I’m allergic to avocados. I have to curl up in a ball for hours in pain. Not fun. But, I sure do love avocados! And good call for other guacamole lovers out there! It was certainly be a great topping. πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks Mandy! πŸ™‚ They definitely had some kick to them! A glass of milk was a necessity (for me, at least).

  1. Hi Caroline, these sound so good! I have been thinking about making some sort of new burrito recipe and this one may fit the bill πŸ™‚
