Vegetarian Burrito Recipe | Kidney Bean - Avocado Filling

      Burrito a national dish of mexico.Authentic burrito's are made with all purpose flour and are called flour tortillas.Burritos are often totally wrapped around the filling completely like a wrap and filling varies.Burrito fillings are only meat and refried beans in mexico.
    Now tortillas are available in wheatflour for diet watchers.Green - Spinach wheat tortillas are even healthier option.

       Being in a mexican neighbourhood i got to try(eat and make) few mexican dishes by visiting neighbouring mexican restaturants.My only fav is cheese enchiladas made with mexican oxaca cheese and roho sauce..
    According to me authentic taste of any cuisine can be tasted only in similar restaurant.Like we say fried rice must be good at chinese restaurants and sambar taste great in South Indian restaurant likewise ..I assure you there is always veg options available for vegetarians in most mexican restaturants ,or at least in US.

    I love corn tortillas. so i used corn tortillas for burrito.These are small compared to flour tortillas and are obviously made with corn flour.These corn tortillas making is quite difficult, like any millet flour.I often buy corn tortillas from local mexican grocery.

    My favorite filling in any mexican recipe is beans.I always make refried beans from scratch(there is obviously no additives).This time i am short of black beans,so made vegetarian kidney bean burrito instead.Kidney bean sure give a little taste variation,but that is not so dominant.You can include veggies too,So this burrito is versatile.Feel free to add what ever vegetables you like or have ,to make a filling, if you don't have avacados.
Being an Indian, i added indian spices to make beans.If you have mexican spice mix you can add so.

If you have leftover rice then this vegetarian kidney bean avacado burrito can be made in under 20 minutes.This sure is a very filling party-dinner option,but sure can be less messy.
