Best Burrito Recipes


Burritos offer you a quick and easy meal that will warm you up and fill you up. Some of the burritos on this list offer you some different takes on the classic burrito. At least one of them is a great breakfast, though it’s delicious enough that it can be cooked anytime. Serve the burritos by themselves or with a side, like sliced fruit, a salad, or chips and dip.

“Burrito” Buddha Bowls

In this dish, the Buddha bowl meets the classic burrito. It’s filled with fresh ingredients, like avocados in the form of guacamole, ground beef, and sour cream. You can make it even tastier by adding your choice of sliced vegetables, like bell peppers, spinach leaves, and black olives. To make this dish vegan, swap out the cheese and the meats for their vegan substitutes.

• white rice
• 1 tsp. virgin olive oil
• 1 lb. ground turkey, beef, or vegan meat substitute
• 1 TBSP chili seasoning
• 1 c. Monterey or pepper Jack, shredded (You can use a vegan or vegetarian substitute.)
• 1/4 c. chopped cilantro
• 1 c. Pico de Gallo
• 1 c. guacamole
• 8 oz. Cheddar, shredded
• Broken tortilla chips
• 1 c. Plain Greek yogurt or sour cream
• Kosher salt
• Black pepper, freshly ground
• White pepper, optional
• Sliced bell peppers, optional
• Washed spinach leaves, optional
• Sliced olives, optional

1. Cook the rice, adding in 1/2 tsp. of salt. You can use instant rice if you wish, but putting it in the cooker usually makes for fluffier rice.
2. Use a fork to fluff the rice ones it’s done. Set it aside, keeping it covered.
3. Add oil and the meat of your choice to a skillet. Cook it up until it’s browned. If you’re using the vegan meat, cook according to package instructions. Break up the meat with a spoon as you cook it.
4. Drain the oil. Then, add in the spices plus the Jack cheese. If you’d like a bit of spicy kick, then use the Pepper Jack cheese.
5. Add the cilantro to the rice, folding it into the dish with a fork or wooden spoon.
6. Put the burrito bowl together. If you’re adding the spinach leaves, then start by lining the bottom of the bowl with the leaves. Next, add in the rest of the ingredients, giving each its own section. If you have opted for the olives and the peppers, then, you’ll have to make for them.
7. Top with plain yogurt, sour cream, or vegan sour cream.

7-Layer Burritos

All of the burrito recipes on this list give you the option to make them vegetarian or vegan, but this one is truly vegetarian from the get-go. This recipe is easy to throw together and a tasty treat to bring to work with you. The recipe makes six burritos, so there’s more than enough to create lunch for a while. If you want to make this dish truly vegan (instead of “just” vegetarian), then be sure to substitute a vegan cheese and sour cream for the ingredients here.

• 6 Large, warmed flour tortillas
• 3 c. warmed refried beans
• 1 1/2 c. Cheddar cheese, shredded
• 3/4 c. Plain Greek yogurt, sour cream, or vegan sour cream
• 3/4 c. Guacamole
• 2 c. Chopped tomatoes
• 3 c. Chopped lettuce
• 3 c. Cilantro rice (See instructions in the recipe above.)

1. Heat up the tortillas in the microwave or in the oven, making sure not to overcook them.
2. Spread the refried beans on each tortilla, giving each one about 1/2 cup.
3. Add in the cheddar cheese, making sure that each burrito gets the same amount as all of the others. Do the same with the tomatoes.
4. Give each burrito 1/2 cup of lettuce and cilantro rice. Top this with the sour cream.
5. Roll each burrito up. If you’re saving some for lunch, wrap in wax paper and then in plastic and put into the freezer. Take them out of the freezer and heat them up in the microwave when you’re ready to eat them.

There are a number of vegan substitutes on the market for foods, like cheese and beef and even bacon and eggs. You can make any or all of these burritos vegetarian by taking out the meat and vegan by substituting all animal products for their vegan substitutes. However, you may have to adjust cooking times if you make substitutions.
