What are your favourite burrito fillings?

Asked by NaturallyMe (4912points) October 7th, 2010

Hopefully there are some meatless ones, so that i can maybe i can get some yummy ideas here. :) Burritos are relatively new to me, so the only filling i’ve used are refried beans (or other mushed beans to which i’ve added spices), tomato, lettuce and cheese. Eaten with sour cream or mashed avo. Yummmmmm!

Could you make them using quinoa? I was just about to ask for uses of quiona and wheat berries in the general section.

deni's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe quinoa is good for everything. i especially like it in stir fries. i like rice too though so i’d rather use rice for burritos. ya know.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@deni I hadn’t thought of rice before. Excellent answer.

Beans and quinoa would be a nice mix. Perhaps with some diced green chiles and a little green sauce.

Veggie burritos are a staple around my house as one of those quick and easy dinners on those evenings when extra curricular activities keep my wife and I from having dinner until after the kids are in bed.

Cut and nuke pretty much any veggie that you have laying around in your crisper, squash, broccoli, and/or asparagus are good choices.

Put some refried beans and cheese on a couple of tortillas, Nuke just long enough for the cheese to become soft. Put your veggies in the middle and roll. Put back in the nuke for a couple more seconds to finish making the cheese goozy. Top with a blob sour cream and salsa (preferably home made). Serve with rice (also topped with a bit of that home made salsa)

Quick, easy, healthy, and tasty.

Quinoa is a good substitute for rice. However, I would serve it on the side rather than in the burrito itself (your mileage may vary)

You could stir-fry onions, green and red peppers, maybe a bit of garlic, with taco seasonings. Throw them into the burrito with Mexican rice, add some sour cream and cheese, lettuce, tomato, avocado…yum!

I like to fill the burritos, top with shredded cheese, and bake them at 350 until they are crisp and the cheese has melted.

Other vegetarian burrito ideas:
Summer Squash Burrito
Brunch Burritos Mushrooms, tomatoes, and sprouts!
Black Bean and Artichoke
Green Chile Breakfast Burritos You could leave out the bacon.
Tomato Spinach and Bean Burrito

I bet something with potatoes, onions, peppers, and cheese would be good too!

I was planning to do Asian for lunch, but now I’m thinking “Freebirds” (a local Austin burrito shop)

@MissAusten Great idea with the baking!

NaturallyMe's avatar

Thanx everybody, there are some yummy sounding ideas! :D

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@NaturallyMe I’m printing off the thread for future reference. Some great ideas jellys.

Next time I go to the grocery store, I’m getting some burrito fixins! We haven’t had them for ages, and it sounds soooo good!

I have a highly inappropriate relationship with guacamole.

Allie's avatar

I like traditional chicken super burritos the best. Chicken, beans, cheese, lettuce, tomato, sour cream, guacamole, and whatever kind of salsa I feel like. I like simple. :)

downtide's avatar

My fave is just like the veggie ones @YoBob makes.

kenmc's avatar

Grilled chicken
Avacado (and I don’t mean guacamole)
Sour cream

All neatly wrapped in a spinach tortilla.

I had my first authentic burrito last weekend, and it was delicious. It was ground beef with gaucamole, lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream, Spanish rice, beans, and salsa.

I’ll go eat more and then get back to you.

I like burritos with rice in them. Apparently, burritos without rice exist. What a travesty. :(

I like burritos with Mexican rice (and of course cilantro-lime rice is good too), black or refried pinto beans, chicken (or carne asada), pico de gallo, hot salsa, guacamole and iceberg lettuce, cilantro, onions, lime juice, etc. I don’t prefer sour cream or cheese in a burrito.

Burritos are, without a doubt, my favorite food. I’ve had burritos from so many different places I couldn’t even begin to count. I love them. What could be better than taking a collection of excellent food items and wrapping them all together in a soft tortilla? It’s the perfect food. :D

@DominicX i love rice, especially in mexican food. i find it troubling though because it makes the burrito even more filling…like it’s not already filling enough, haha. thats the only reason i dont want them in my burrito. and rice is good enough by itself!

DominicX's avatar


When it comes to burritos, I have two options: eat part of it or eat the whole thing and feel really full. I almost always go with the latter. It’s worth it to me. :D

deni's avatar

@DominicX i know…you might as well eat it while its hot and delish. thats my problem, i’m always like “well it wont taste as good next time, i’ll just eat it now” then i overeat, every day, and hate myself when i’m unable to move 10 mins later lol

Does a burrito have to have rice/beans in it to be a burrito?

Burrito 1:
Green peppers, onions, and garlic, sauteed fajita style
Homemade guacamole (avocado, cilantro, finely diced red onion, lots of lime juice, garlic, dash of habanero, salt, pepper, cumin)
shredded romaine lettuce
Diced tomatoes
Whole wheat tortilla

Burrito 2:
Morningstar veggie burger (actually delicious! My favorite veggie burger.)
homemade guacamole
shredded cabbage or prepared cole slaw
homemade pico de gallo (diced tomatoes, diced onion, garlic, lime, cilantro, salt, pepper)
chipotle mayonaise, the magic ingredient

Burrito 3— actually more of a breakfast burrito
Portobello mushrooms, green bell pepper, onion, fresh tomato, spinach, garlic- saute all together in olive oil. Add the spinach at the very last minute, just until it’s wilted.
Eggs or just egg whites- scramble it all together
Throw a little pepperjack cheese in there
I like to make the eggs the night before, microwave it real quick in the morning and put it in a whole wheat tortilla.

NaturallyMe's avatar

@Haleth They can probably have anything in it that you want! Yours sounds tasty too, i’ll have to try some beanless burritos some time. :D I actually also had a scrambled egg one once, with sour cream on top, but i think adding mushrooms would make it SO much more tasty. :)
@alovehangoverr I’m the same way with the sour cream when it comes to burritos. I would do the same with avos, but sour cream is much more readily available! :)

So… funny story…

Last night a cub scout meeting kept my youngest and I from getting home until just before bedtime, so it was one of those where the wife and I didn’t get to eat until later. While I was reading to the kids she went in to whip something up for us. I had not mentioned this conversation to her and busted out laughing when to my surprise I found that she was fixing veggie burritos with asparagus and carrots along with red quinoa on the side (served with home made salsa, of course).
