Mexican Burritos in a Jiffy

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Dreamer in Ontario

This low fat version of burritos is one of DD's favourite recipes.When DD was younger I used it as a way to sneak in veggies that she wouldn't otherwise eat. The original recipe was found in Anne Lindsay's Lighthearted Everyday Cooking.

Quick easy and healthy. I used frozen corn kernels for the green peppers and otherwise followed the recipe. The flavor combination is very good and appealing for adults and kids alike. I julienned my zucchini and they were just done, any larger and it would not have been enough. I especially liked the crispy bottom of my burritos and would opt for broiling the tops before melting the cheese. Thanks Dreamer.
