  • If you prefer a crunch wrap instead of a burrito, check out this vegan crunch wrap recipe.
  • Add vegan sour cream for an added creamy bonus.
  • When cooking the burrito in a pan or in the panini press, start with the fold side down to seal the burrito shut.

  • Warm the cheese sauce before adding it to the squeeze bottle.
  • Try Mexican rice or Mexican chopped salad on the side.
