Vegetarian Burritos

“Provides the perfect protein combination....beans and corn. This is a recipe from the Moosewood Restaurant. (I've updated the # of servings...I agree with Longhorm Mama....1 burrito is reasonable serving..thanks for the input) The filling also freezes well. I make a big batch and freeze the filling in ziploc bags and then assemble and bake when needed.”
