Mmmm, the sauteed vegetables melt the cheese to make this a yummy treat, and the beans and cheese make it a complete meal. Great way to use up zucchini!

I liked the taste of these vegetarian burritos. It is a good combination of a zucchini, corn, black beans, green peppers, minced garlic, and I also added 1/4 cup mild salsa to the vegetables for more flavor. I used flour tortillas and crumbled Mexican queso fresco. The taste of the sauce is very good with sour cream, mild salsa, lime juice and cilantro. Next time, I will make them with shredded chicken, too. Thanks for sharing this good recipe Chef, and good luck in the contest.
