Ingredients

  • One batch of Spiced "Cauliflower Rice" and Beans
  • 1 ripe medium/large avocado
  • 1/2 c. chopped tomatoes
  • 1/8 tsp. salt + more to taste
  • 1/8 tsp. ground black pepper + more to taste
  • 1/2 of a lime optional
  • 1/3 c. vegan mayonnaise
  • 1 1/2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp. maple syrup
  • a good pinch of cayenne pepper about 1/8 tsp. worth
  • 4 romaine leaves
  • 4 large tortillas   I used a soft, whole grain variety

Instructions

  • Mix up a batch of Spiced "Cauliflower Rice" and Beans and set aside. Mix up a batch of Spiced "Cauliflower Rice" and Beans and set aside.
  • Next, let's make our Guacamole:  Into a medium-sized bowl, spoon out the ripened avocado and mash it up with a fork.
  • 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.
  • 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!
  • Lastly, take your four romaine leaves, and chop them up into 1/4 inch little strips. Yep, you guessed it: set it aside!
  • 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".
  • First, spoon out about 1/4 of the Guacamole onto the tortilla, followed by 1/4 of the Spiced "Cauliflower Rice" and Beans, then a bit of romaine, and finally, drizzle 1/4 of the Sweet Chipotle Sauce across the top.
  • 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.

Notes

  • For a gluten free version, use gluten free tortillas.
  • If you want to amp these burritos up even more, add some chopped pistachios or pumpkin seeds (aka: pepitas)
