Bean Burrito

Bean Burrito is one of my favorite from Taco Bell fast food restaurant. Bean along with cheese, sour cream, rice, etc. are wrapped in a grilled tortilla which is so comforting. My version of burrito is with vegetables and bean, a less guilt version. I have used the ready made  tortillas. You can also use homemade tortilla. Please find the recipe below. Here you go…
