    These are great and super easy to make. Get a partner and it doesn't take that long to cook, set up and clean up. Get out the Cuisinart to make prep super quick. They're great as is, but we felt it was missing a little acid. Even at 2 minutes on the tomato, you're losing most of the acid. Give them a quick spritz of lime before you roll them up and they'll be perfect!.

    My kids who are the worlds pickiest eater's loved them. Instead of Quinoa, I used Mexican Rice.

    Great to freeze and eat later, hot or cold. I added Sriracha to mine. So filling and delicious.

    Not really my cup. Needed less spice, less black bean, and was bland. Only made eatable with copious amounts of lettuce + mayo.

    Turned out great even though I left out the zucchini and subbed the quinoa for brown rice.

    Delicious! They’re great to take to work for lunch, you can make a bunch and freeze them ahead of time. They are good cold or warmed up for a minute or so. My toddler even likes them! Definitely a winner :)

    I was surprised how good this actually turned out. I followed the recipe exactly and can't really think how I could make it taste any better. Will definitely make again.

    Omitting the cheese, this was the easiest, cheapest, and best tasting freezable vegan lunch I've been able to find! The chopping was a lot of the future I might try to use my food processor for all the dicing. If you want to freeze your burritos, I'd suggest squeezing as much water out of your veggies as possible (so your burritos aren't soggy when they thaw). Next time I'll omit the tortillas and just eat them as bowls.

    Loved it. Doubled the batch in two pans and added ground beef to one. Turned out awesome.

    Delicious! I made these for clients of mine and they loved them. Makes for a great freezer meal too!

    These turn out great every time we make them. We usually make a couple for dinner and then freeze the rest for lunch throughout the week I recommend taking them out in the morning to thaw by lunch and then warming it up in the microwave for a few seconds. Delicious!

    Absolutely delicious. I added lettuce and avocado for the one I ate tonight but just ago for the freezer ones

    Great. Quick, tasty and easy to make enough for the whole week in one go. We didn't freeze- just refrigerated leftovers to put in a burrito or over lettuce for a salad.

    Unable to make it. This stupid rating system popped up every time I tried logging in and I couldn't get passed it to the recipe!!

    Great lunch idea, make them in batches a lot now. They freeze well and are a real treat, easy to make and full of flavour
