    These vegetarian burritos are filling, easy to make AND delicious! I have tried them a few times now, and other beans work just as well - kidney, pinto. Serve with salsa dip and homemade guacamole, yUM!  -  23 May 2011


    Quick and filling! Added some sweetcorn, and great with a mix of beans  -  21 Aug 2015


    Made this for lunch and it was very tasty. Used a dried hot chilli as didn't have any others. Was wondering if it would be filling enough with only 1 wrap. It definately was.  -  02 Oct 2012
