Avocado-Mango Black Bean Burritos

This vegan bean burrito recipe is simple, fast and delicious. Lime, fresh mango, cilantro, avocado and fire-roasted green chiles create a fresh sweet-sour salsa. Stewed black beans with ground cumin and smoked paprika provide a savory, hearty counterbalance.

These simple burritos taste fantastic on their own, or with some vegan toppings. Think vegan cheese, vegan sour cream, etc. Or serve along with a side of cilantro-lime brown rice (toss cooked brown rice with salt, garlic powder, olive oil, lime juice and fresh chopped cilantro).
