Healthy Burritos

A healthy, high-protein, low-fat breakfast provides the fuel you need to get going in the morning.A good breakfast always starts one's day and making burritos with your choice of vegetables and meat gives all the energy to need perform well any where.Burrito sized flour tortillas are available in all store for a very quick fix anytime of the day but I prefer to use these store brought tortillas for making quesadillas only.I love to make burritos using home made chapathis instead of ready made tortillas.These are hubby's great choice of fast food whenever we have the urge to have some light snack during the weekends. First shop that comes to his mind would Taco Bell..which I don't really like much compared to my burritos:)

Burritos are a traditional food of Ciudad Juárez, a city in the northern Mexican state of Chihuahua, where people buy them at restaurants and roadside stands.A burrito or taco de harina, is a type of food found in Mexican and Tex-Mex cuisine. It consists of a flour tortilla wrapped or folded around a filling. these fillings generally include a combination of ingredients such as Mexican rice, beans, lettuce, salsa, meat, avocado, cheese, and sour cream.I'm making the Indian version of these Mexican delights.
