I have been in an experimental phase with food lately. Since I'm now dating a carnivore with somewhat picky eating habits (hates onions, sweet potatoes and tomatoes!) I'm constantly trying to think up fun new foods to try that (1) are healthy and (2) don't originally contain meat. One thing we love doing is making burritos together since you can just add whatever you'd like, but I wanted to spice it up a bit and came up with these mango burrittos with spicy cinnamon vegetarian meat. Growing up Mexican food was always a staple in my house since it was so DIY everyone's tastes could be accommodated. This is the perfect menu item for get togethers at the house!
I'm not exaggerating at all when I say this is the best burrito I've ever had. I am a huge fan of the sweet & savory combination so the cinnamon and cumin spiced MorningStar Farms crumbles combine with extra juicy mango chunks is divine. Literally, nearly a religious experience. As usual we made up about 6 burritos and had 4 leftover. You could wrap them up in tinfoil and throw them in the fridge if you wanted to keep them for a while, but I didn't so I had them for lunch for a few days. Travis was nice enough to let me have all the leftovers. Such a keeper.
In a large skillet throw in a bag of MorningStar Farms Crumbles and season with the following:
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1 stp oregano
- 1/2 tsp coriander
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 1/2 cups chopped mango (add this toward the end)
Cook on medium heat until warmed up (about 8-10 minutes.) While this is cooking make up some brown rice and whatever else you'd like to add. We also added some mango salsa and shredded mexican cheese. This was super filling, and even the meat-eating boyfriend loved it. The leftovers taste great, and paired with some roasted veggies it's a pretty quick, nutritionally complete meal!

p.s. If you haven't tried MorningStar Farms Spicy Black Bean Veggie Burgers yet you should do so immediately! I love having one plain with a wedge of laughing cow cheese on top, or crumbling one up in scrambled eggs for breakfast. So good and 10 grams of delicious protein!
