- 4 12" whole grain tortillas

- Juice of 1/2 lime

If you don't have it ready yet, prepare the lentil taco meat.
Prepare the simple guacamole. In a small bowl, mash the avocado. Add the lime juice, chopped cilantro to taste and salt. Set aside.
Assemble the burritos: Add the guacamole and the lentil taco meat to the flour tortillas. Add other fillings of choice in each burrito. Wrap and serve or fry in a skillet before serving.
The simple guacamole is not a traditional guacamole. Feel free to make your own guacamole or use store bought. Alternatively, you can just use diced avocado.
I use this recipe for the lentil taco meat. You can make it in advance and reheated it on a skillet with a drizzle of oil for a make-ahead option.
I like to sauté the onion and bell pepper. I use sliced red onion and a red bell pepper and sauté them in a skillet with oil until lightly tender and fragrant.
Roasted sweet potatoes are also delicious in these burritos. Dice a sweet potato, drizzle with oil and sprinkle with salt to taste. Roast it at 400F for approximately 30 minutes until tender and golden.
For a gluten-free option, use corn tortillas or gluten-free tortillas. For a vegan option, omit the sour cream/yogurt or use vegan sour cream.
