This gluten-free, vegetarian burrito has all the delicious ingredients of a burrito but without the tortilla. This Mexican dish is made with black beans, tomatoes, bell peppers, rice, cheese, and plenty of cilantro. For the spices, I used the traditional chili powder, cumin and garlic. To serve, you can add salsa, fresh cilantro and or sour cream.

What I love about this recipe is the simplicity because this entire gluten-free meal is made in one skillet. I can’t tell how delicious this vegetarian burrito is, there is so much flavour going on. I promise you, if you love burritos, you will enjoy this healthier vegetarian version. In addition, the entire meal is made without gluten. Enjoy!
