I had one with:
Cactus and artichoke hearts, black beans, rice, cabbage, avocado, salsa fresca, cilantro, and green tomatillo salsa.

Which was pretty badass one time. But I don't remember the cactus they put in it, and also they don't have those cacti anywhere here.

But I'm not sure I know all of what is out there. There isn't much Mexican food this side of the world.

black beans, rice, avocado, salsa fresca ( I looked and I think this is pico de Gallo, right?), cilantro, jalapenos, tofu and mushrooms sometimes I will prepare them with tahini.. maybe lettuce too..

And sometimes I wrap other stuff that I don't consider to be burrito, but feels the same, like lentils, spinach, tomatoes and basil or whatever I have on my fridge

yeah!

So you cook the tofu in tahini?

kinshavo wrote

I use tahini to get a creamy texture in some dishes but I never got it right.

I would fry the tofu in small cubes and the mushrooms, maybe throw some garlic and parsley and then to finalize add tahini. I need to experiment with different cooking oils, but coconut mix better with tahini so far.

I’m so boring. My absolute favorite burrito is refried beans, taco sauce, and vegan cheese (similar to Taco Bell minus onions). But I usually feel bad for not eating more veggies, so I add a bunch of lettuce and avocado.

I developed a tomato allergy a few years ago, but I used to love a whole lot of fresh tomato too. I miss tomatoes.

Just learned that taco sauce is a thing.

Wow a tomato allergy, pretty unusual. Tomatoes are my tied favourite food with peppers.

I like refried beans a lot but it's hard to find here.

Yeah luckily I can still eat peppers. (And all other nightshades except eggplant.) Giving up tomatoes was harder than giving up gluten.

Refried beans are somewhat easy to make: purée (or mash with a fork) a drained can of pintos (or black beans) with your fave spices. I usually use cumin and a bit of taco sauce or habanero.

Oh cool, it's just that? That's way easier that I expected.

I think authentically they’re cooked a bit more after the mushing step, to evaporate off some of the liquid and thicken it, but I’m disabled and in pain and have to cook my own food, so that’s as far as I go with it. I save a fortune making them this way and I can customize it for my preferences. Some folks like a lot of onion and garlic in theirs. And I think they’re better with a little tomato paste or a lot of salsa mixed in (for tomato eaters).

I add a bit of corn or potato starch to thicken it. Way too long wait for it to thicken and I don't want to overcook everything

ghost wrote

Also a good idea! I’m lazy and use less liquid to start, so it doesn’t need extra thickening… also I don’t mind when it’s kinda thin because I’m a messy ghoul.

I really like corn, coriander and some sort of chilli, beyond that I haven't put much thought into it.

I don't like avocado - they taste like dirt to me.

That explains why two avocados in the same bag can taste drastically different.

That’s fucked up.

Protip: If you eat it unripened enough it'll taste like grass.

I eat avocado fairly regularly actually (eating leftovers mostly), but I just wouldn't put it on food if I chose what was there.

I only eat avocado when someone else buys it because I can't choose a good one and also they're expensive af.

Hadn't experimented much with burrito. It almost always is red beans refried with onions, garlic, spices, crumbled tofu and mushrooms. Sometimes I add lettuce, celery, corn, vegan mayo. Sometimes I fry tofu slices instead of crumbling it into refried beans - it's better that way. I like it this way, but pretty much open to experiments.

Tried adding rice - didn't liked it, or I've done it wrong.

Definitely beans, pico de gallo, and salsa. If I'm making it myself, zucchini/summer squash, otherwise two of the best burritos I've eaten contained vegan carne asada. Probably crema, fries, and smothered with red chile sauce.
