Bountiful Vegetable Burritos

This recipe was inspired by those I’ve had at Mexican or Southwestern-style eateries. Some serve these veggie-filled burritos with garlicky greens, chips and salsa, and a big salad. Refried beans help hold everything together so that it doesn’t fall apart. They also make these burritos more filling and substantial. Feel free to substitute vegetables other than the ones suggested here. more→
