As Great Burrito lover “But not so Big” I thought I would not care for meatless burritos but how wrong I was so I did myself a big challenge to create a tasty burrito I would enjoy.
I recall when I had a (sandwich shop Deli) I did make a vegetable burrito and they became very popular, at that time all I did was do my usual burrito recipe but without the meat and added some shredded carrots and green onions, they did well but now I have created a little better version.
See the recipe below;
I am pleased with the outcome, however I must point out that you can play with the seasoning to your liking, that is an important part of the flavor, you can get those little cans of green peppers that do add a nice flavor, or for an even better south of the border touch get some fresh Poblano peppers to slice very thin so they fry fast, Please remove seeds them first.
I did not mention chili power because I do not prefer them in my seasoning but you may enjoy them feel free to add it if you prefer a little spicier flavor. I later added my special Pica de Gallo which I add fresh diced Jalapenos, that gave it a nice kick. but you can balance to your liking.

The Best Burrito you can make
Why you ask,? Cause it looks like a burrito but tastes like a Fajita. Think about it, when you go to a Mexican fast-food restaurant and ask for a steak burrito you get the following ingredients in it, Lettuce, Rice, Beans, sour cream, tomatoes, some put in avocado ! the meat steak it so small and crispy you cannot tell if it’s steak or pork, or what! it’s hard and tasteless.
Now think about what you get when you ask for a Fajita, Bell peppers/or poblano peppers cut in strips,” Juliann” tomatoes, onions, strips of tender steak, usually still smoking from the grill,
So I set out to use both ingredients and call it a Burrhita, I wanted to taste the good tender steak, along with grilled tasting peppers and onions and all the rest of the parts that make it big and Tasty.
A Large very large Tortilla about 16 inches, meanwhile I sauteed my steak usually some tin sliced rib eye, or sirloin a good cut that can still be tender after some flash grilling,
I combine in a shaker salt, fresh cracked black pepper, onion, and Garlic powder, cumin, finely crushed pepper flakes, season your meat while grilling, Now add your peppers and Onions, and diced tomatoes, cooking till onions and peppers are soft or firm to the bite,
after warming your tortilla, top with lettuce, white Mexican cheese, and all the steak mixture, you may add avocado or sour cream, or even salsa. adjust for your taste of heat! also, you can add beans and rice but be care full it will be huge, as big as a rolled-up newspaper. I like them grilled all over to make the outside crispy, can use a heat press to brown. Add your own touches but use a slice of good meat, Chicken, Pork, or even Chorizo and Eggs.
