It’s been years since I’ve eaten at a taco bell, but I have to admit that it used to be one of my favorites.  Not only because I’m obsessed with Mexican food, but also because they’ve always had a lot of vegetarian options,which was surprising for a fast food chain especially back in the day.

When I was in high school I probably ate at taco bell much more than I would like to admit!  And the really funny thing was that the closest taco bell to my house was in the next town over located inside of the Walmart.  So we would all go to Walmart just to eat at taco bell, it sounds sad but it was true.  And I always ordered the 7 layer burrito.  It was packed with rice, beans, cheese, guacamole, sour cream, lettuce and tomato and it was my favorite.  Today I’m sharing my version of a vegetarian 7-layer burrito and I’ve changed a few things up.  I’ve used quinoa instead of rice, black beans instead of re-fried beans and I’ve also added roasted sweet potatoes because these days it’s hard for me to eat anything that doesn’t include sweet potatoes!

While I’m known for loving my tacos, I also really love burritos.  So, when I first started experimenting with gluten free eating I really, really missed eating burritos.  Don’t get me wrong, tacos are delicious and I could eat them all day, but there is something so satisfying about wrapping up all your favorite ingredients into a huge tortilla and enjoying it all without toppings falling out the back.  Which is why I was so excited when I discovered Udi’s gluten free tortillas!  They are soft, heat up well and don’t fall apart when you try to fold them.  They’re perfect for this 7-Layer Vegetarian Burrito as well as all of your other burrito needs!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup quinoa

    I used to eat fast food a lot in high school too, I loved Taco Bell! These 7-layer burritos look so good, Izzy. I’m sure they’re a lot better for you than fast food too! 😉

      What???!!!!?? They will change your life! Tacos are awesome, but burritos also have a special place in my heart and I think you would love them!

    • She Likes Food says

      Is it still guilt free if you eat two of these?! lol! I think the vegetables make it ok though! Thanks, Ranchel :)

    I could eat Mexican food all the time. I love these burritos, Izzy! We live right near a Mexican restaurant and if I order a burrito it’s good for at least three meals..dinner and two lunches! So much food. I just love these healthier ones!

    • She Likes Food says

      Me too, Alyssa!! It’s so addicting! I especially love the giant portions that you can eat for days :)

    I would just like to point out your recipes are great.

    Whenever an email arrives from you I find that your recipes are “in a light blue” which is very difficult to read. Maybe the font color can be changed to make it more legible to read and maybe make it Bold.

    Plus I’ve noticed you do not have any” nutritional values” in your recipes.

    Thank you.

    • She Likes Food says

      Hi Vicki, thank you!

      Unfortunately, I think the light blue is in the permanent template for my e-mails and I’m not able to change it. I will look into it though!

      Yes, adding nutritional labels to my recipes is on my to-do list, but right now I’m struggling to find the time. I’ll try to make it a priority soon though :)

    These are so great! They taste light and fresh rather than heavy like most burritos. I would never have thought to put spinach in a burrito, but it’s such a good idea!
