Yummy. Good for a meatless meal. I didn't use the jalapeño in the recipe as I do not like spicy and cheated by using a boxed bean/rice product.
These burritos are so flavorful and simple to make. Lunch comes together in 20 minutes. The spinach-mushroom filling is packed with healthy ingredients, but the ooey-gooey cheese is what sells kids on this combo.
