Burritos, sandwich wraps, tacos, you name it – if it involves a tortilla, my husband, Jeff, loves it. In fact, if there’s a sandwich wrap on a menu, I could bet money that he will order it!

Therefore, it goes without saying that Jeff was the inspiration behind this burrito recipe; a delicious handheld meal with a variety of flavors and textures all wrapped up in a tortilla. Boy-oh-boy… I can’t wait for you to try this one!

Why this Recipe Works:

  • This recipe is made with easy-to-find ingredients and is very simple to whip up.
  • Filled with high fiber ingredients, these burritos are super filling and satisfying!
  • These burritos are great for a weeknight dinner or for meal prep!
  • Feel like having even more fun? My Blueberry Margaritas go great with these burritos!

Can I make these into burrito bowls?

  • You absolutely can! Just layer a bowl with cauliflower rice and beans and guacamole, and top with chipotle sauce. You could even add extra raw onion, salsa, pico de gallo, or vegan cheese.

How to Make Chipotle “Cauliflower Rice” and Guacamole Burritos:

1. Mix up a batch of Spiced “Cauliflower Rice” and Beans and set aside.

2. Next, let’s make our Guacamole:  Into a medium-sized bowl, spoon out the ripened avocado and mash it up with a fork.

3. Add the chopped tomato and salt and pepper to taste. If you happen to have a lime laying around, squeeze in the juice of half of one, too!  Gently stir until just combined and set this aside, as well.

4.  Next, make your Sweet Chipotle Sauce:  In a small bowl, combine the vegan mayonnaise, chili powder, maple syrup and cayenne pepper.  Set this aside, too!

5. Lastly, take your four romaine leaves, and chop them up into 1/4 inch little strips. Yep, you guessed it: set it aside!

6. Now we’re ready to assemble the burritos. First, lay one tortilla on a clean, flat surface.

Tip: If your tortillas are cold or on the stiff side, then you’ll first want to warm them in the microwave for ten seconds between two lightly dampened paper towels. That should help make them more “bend-y”.

7. First, spoon out about 1/4 of the Guacamole onto the tortilla….

And finally, drizzle 1/4 of the Sweet Chipotle Sauce across the top.

8. Finish up by using whichever burrito folding method works for you, set the burrito aside, and then repeat the above steps to create the remaining three burritos.

And that’s all there is to it! These burritos are so delicious and fun.  I hope you love them as much as we do!

Top Tips for Making Chipotle “Cauliflower Rice” and Guacamole Burritos:

  • Not eating everything right away? No problem! Keep all of the ingredients separate until you’re ready to eat. If you’re adding romaine, I’d chop it right before you assemble and eat.
  • If you’re not a fan of chipotle sauce, then you can definitely leave it off or add some fresh salsa or pico de gallo!
  • For a gluten free version, use gluten free tortillas.
  • If you want to amp these burritos up even more, go ahead and add some vegan cheese. However, these are so loaded, you may not want to!
