As usual, I don’t tend to follow recipes exactly, but I tried this one out because I was getting bored with my lunch and I’ve been trying to cut down on my meat intake. This was a grand idea! I loved her recommendation to rinse the beans! It helped make the burrito less messy and it gets rid of some of the salt they can it with.
My modifications: I accidentally forgot the rice because I’m a dork, but I know that will be great and I’ll try not to forget it next time. I'll cook it in some broth and lime juice. I sautéed all the veggies along with onions and two types of chilies until the onions were nice and caramelized. I added seasoning and lime juice. I kept that separate from the black beans that I used.
To transport to work I just put beans on one side of my bento box, the veggies on the other, and I sprinkled the cheese all over the top. I wrapped up a tortilla in foil and once I’m at work I can microwave the filling until the cheese melts and I have a delicious vegetarian lunch! When I remember, I also bring along a bottle of hot sauce and it adds a nice kick. And the great part is I don’t even need to freeze it if I finish it off by the end of the week. I just keep it in the fridge and spoon into my lunch box the night before so it’s ready to grab and go! Thanks for the great idea! This has a ton of modification possibilities to keep my lunch exciting!
