Skillet Burrito

Skillet Burrito

This dish reminds me of enchiladas with less carbs, less cheese and a lot less time. This two-ingredient red chili sauce is the perfect simmering sauce for this mash of bite sized sweet potatoes, peppers, frozen corn, and a can of beans. Cut some tortillas in strips, and lay them over the plant-based mixture, then top with cheese. Cover until cheese is melted and garnish with cilantro.

This recipe is adapted from Rabbit and Wolves, so please head over to Lauren’s vegan food blog, where I found the this genius dish. All I did was add some sweet potatoes and hack the sauce. So easy and so yummy!


  • 1/2 packet of taco seasoning
  • can of tomato sauce
  • can of black beans
  • frozen corn or canned corn
