If you’re a big fan of burritos, then you’ll seriously appreciate this amazing fully loaded burrito with a rich mole sauce! This recipe must be the ultimate plant-based dream! It has it all. The rice, the beans, the guacamole, the salsa, and as a perfect addition, a creamy Mexican mole poblano sauce. Are you ready?
The Ultimate Easy Lunch!
Whoever came up with the idea of stuffing the best and most nutritious ingredients into a soft tortilla was really up to something! Interesting fact: the first burrito was created in a cafe in Los Angeles, California during the 1930s and it’s no surprise they have since become a world favorite. This genius recipe idea must be one of the quickest and easiest lunches to prepare when you’re running short on time.
If you have some leftover rice from the meal you made the night before, some canned beans in your pantry, and some lettuce that needs to be used soon, you’re almost set. Add some delicious creamy guacamole to the mix and your quick lunch will become the ultimate treat. This fully loaded burrito calls for this mole poblano sauce but it is completely optional.
This super delicious burrito is packed with healthy plant-based protein but if you want to add even more you are welcomed to replace the white rice with some nutritious quinoa. It will double this recipe’s protein content and will add even more flavor.
Quinoa is very popular in the plant-based eating lifestyle, not only because of it’s high protein count but also because it is full of many other nutrients, such as fiber, magnesium, potassium, and Vitamin E.
So, are you already completely determined to prepare this amazing fully loaded burrito? You really should be!
