Meatless Mondays Confetti-Stuffed Burritos by Denise Clark

January 30, 2012 Recipes No Comments

Here is a recipe that is so good and lightened up a bit.  As you can see, you can “tweak” the ingredients very easily…for example:  whole grain tortilla, more beans, less potato, add a little cheese….you get the idea:).

Enjoy!  Denise Clark
