This is an easy, hearty meal for a family or dinner party--burritos also freeze well! Great served with salsa and sour cream! Habanero chile peppers are extremely hot! You might only need half of one to generate enough heat for your tastes! Be careful when you chop the habanero chile, remember to use gloves!

  • In a medium size mixing bowl combine heated mixture with cooked rice, cilantro, and 1 cup barbecue sauce.

  • Lay tortillas on flat surface. Spoon about 3/4 cup of filling onto each tortilla's center. Wrap tortilla so that mixture is captured on the inside.

  • In a casserole dish pour barbecue sauce to coat the dish's bottom. Place burritos in dish and pour more barbecue sauce on top of them. Bake in a preheated 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) oven for 35 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Most flour tortillas are vegetarian or vegan, but some may contain lard. Check the label.

This was a great dish! Chopping veges is the most time consuming part of this dish. But don't let this stop you from making it! I didn't have enough barbeque sauce so ended up toppin w/grated cheese in an effort to keep the burritos from getting too crispy. They turned out great! Even the kids like them but one child was turned off by all the onion/bell peppers the other the seitan. Otherwise they thought they were great! Read More

I hate to rain on the parade but this one didn't do it for me...WAY too much barbecue sauce. The filling isn't bad by itself though. Read More

Real tastey and simple to put together but watch out for how much chile's you use if children are going to eat it. Read More

An exceptional recipe. Granted a bit labor-intensive unless you have a food processor (I don't) but I found it to be tastier than expected and easy to put together. A did make a few substitutions in the recipe though. First I substituted 3 jalepenos for the habanero (my area grocery stores don't even carry serranos) and tofu for seitan (again my store didn't have it). Second I used a spicy BBQ sauce -- same amount just a bit more kick to it. The end result was quite spicy which is the way I like it so be careful.:) Read More

What great taste! I added black olives and extra cilantro. I also added a little cajun seasoning to the rice while it cooked. I surprised my roommate with the recipe and we both loved it. Read More

For yummystuff99. Seitan is a meat substitute made from wheat gluten. It has a chewy texture and can be seasoned to taste like just about anything. You can find it at your store usually in the same section you would find veg deli slices and possibly near the water-packed tofu. I highly recommend you give it a try. You can also make it yourself out of vital wheat gluten. There are lots of great recipes out there. My favorite comes from the Post Punk Kitchen website. These burritos were awsome by the way. My bbq addict fiance refused to share. Read More

This recipe was so easy to make and follow yet it tasted like I spent all day making it. My husband was in heaven. He just recently became vegetarian and he didn't think that he could do it but after eating that he was ready to try anything! Read More

This is a fabulous recipe! I tweaked it just a bit though. I used jalapenos instead of habaneros shredded tempeh instead of seitan and omitted the cilantro & green onions (didn't have them on hand). I added some shredded low-fat cheese and used a mesquite barbeque sauce which added a nice flavor. Next time I may add some corn. For spreading in the pan and coating the burritos I cut the bbq sauce with a bit of water to make it less gloppy and more of a sauce (I used a very thick bbq sauce). I baked it covered with foil then removed the foil for the last 5-10 minutes. That kept the burritos nice and moist. The recipe makes a lot; freeze the leftovers individually for quick microwaveable lunches. This recipe is definitely a keeper and will go into my regular meal rotation! Read More
