Old El Paso asked me to develop some recipes for them. One of the recipes is using one of their newest products the Stand’ N Stuff Taco Shells. I love a good burrito but always feel like there is too much tortilla and not enough filling. Are you with me? The Stand’N Stuff Taco Shells are ideal for making quick and easy burritos at home, such as these Healthy Veggie Burritos.
The Stand’ N Stuff Taco Shells were perfect for creating a not overloaded burrito. For this recipe, I used farm fresh veggies that were in season at the time. To keep my burritos on the healthier side I omitted the cheese and sour cream, instead, I used lots of fresh zucchini, red peppers, and sweet summer corn. I, also, used Old El Paso Mexican Rice for a little extra filler. I served chunky mild salsa alongside the tacos for a little added kick. They were a huge hit at our home, and we will continue to enjoy them even after summer produce disappears. Wouldn’t black beans and butternut squash be great?
