2 tbsp. olive oil

1/2 cup white onion, finely chopped

2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

1 tbsp. jalapeno, seeded, finely sliced

1 1/2 cups brown rice

1 cup baked beans

1/2 cup cilantro, finely chopped

juice of half a lime

2 tbsp. hot sauce

3/4 cup daiya cheddar cheese

season to taste

4 large tortillas, just into quarters

1 tbsp. olive oil

1 1/2 avocados – I used California Avocados

1/2 cup cilantro

juice of one lime

season to taste

2 tbsp. olive oil


Into a frying pan heat your olive oil for 30 seconds.  Add the onions and let sautee on medium heat for around 5 minutes.  Add the garlic and cook for another minute.

Add your jalapeno, rice and beans.  Cook down for around 5 minutes, till well combined.  Then add your cilantro, lime, hot sauce and cheese.  Stir till cheese is melted and mixture is hot throughout.  Turn off the heat and set aside.

Prepare your tortillas by quartering.  Take around a heaped tsp of your burrito mixture and place into the corner of the tortilla.  Take the corner of the tortilla and roll in towards the middle, then grab the right side and told it over and repeat with the left.  Pinching both sides, complete the roll as tight as possible and place flap side down onto a plate.  Repeat till you have made 16.

For cooking, add olive oil to a clean frying pan and let it heat up on medium heat.  Depending on the size of your frying pan begin cooking your Burrito Bites.  Place flap side down at first to seal.  Cook for 1-2 minutes on each side till it’s completely crispy.

To make your avocado sauce simply add all your ingredients into a jar and blend using a hand blender.  I blended for around two minutes to achieve that perfect, silky consistency.

Serve with your Avocado Cilantro Lime Sauce.  You’re officially a hero.


Sauce will last up to 2 days in the fridge in a tight sealed container – Avocado has the tendency to go brown so enjoy as soon as possible.
