Chipotle and Lime Vegan Burritos Recipe from Vegan Burgers and Burritos by Sophia DeSantis

Sophia made my life easy by supplying some of the basic details about Vegan Burgers and Burritos. There are 4 chapters, broken into 27 burgers, 26 burritos, 19 sauces, and 4 sides. All of the recipes are plant-based, gluten-free, refined-sugar free, feature whole food ingredients, and have sauce pairings. The recipes are also leveled from I to III, with most of them being fairly simple to follow – even for kids!

But what Sophia won’t tell you – she’s too modest – is that her energetic, honest personality makes this cookbook a joy to follow. She might tell you that her recipe creation skills are awesome, but I’m here to confirm it, too. Sophia is incredibly creative with recipes, but she never goes too far out there. Her recipes are kid-friendly, husband-approved, and very doable for families and busy people in general.

When Sophia offered to share a recipe from Vegan Burgers and Burritos, my first thought was to pick a burger recipe. I assumed it’s what everyone would want most. But then I realized that I wanted to try one of her burrito recipes first. And when I looked at Go Dairy Free, I also noticed that we have just one burrito recipe after all of these years! So today, we’re joining Team Burrito with Sophia’s Chipotle & Lime Vegan Burritos.

Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Chipotle and lime were meant to be soul mates. The flavor combo is insanely amazing. This easy-to-throw-together burrito is meant to be eaten in silence. The flavor gods need to be thanked for this one.
Serves: 4 to 5 burritos
  • 1 cup (170 g) chopped red, yellow, and green bell pepper mix
  • ½ cup (85 g) chopped spicy pepper of choice (jalapeño, cherry bomb, etc.)
  • ½ cup (76 g) chopped red onion
  • ½ cup (118 ml) low-sodium veggie broth or drizzle of oil, for sautéing
  • 2 tablespoon (30 ml) fresh lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
Rice and Beans
To Serve
  1. To make the vegetables, sauté the peppers and onion in a pan over medium heat with veggie broth, lime juice, salt, and garlic powder until cooked and fragrant, about 10 to 12 minutes. You may need to add more broth if it gets too dry. The mixture is ready when the veggies are soft and almost sticky looking.
  2. To make the rice and beans, put the cooked rice, beans, cilantro, lime juice, salt, and chipotle powder in a bowl and stir well.
  3. Once everything is ready, build the burritos by filling the tortillas with the rice and beans, sautéed veggies, avocado, and shredded cabbage.
  4. Drizzle the cream sauce or salsa over the filling ingredients.
  5. To fold the burrito, fold the sides over toward the center, then roll upward to create a burrito. (Step by step photos are in the book Vegan Burgers and Burritos.)
  6. You can optionally grill the seam for 7 to 8 minutes until it seals and closes the burrito. You can also grill the other side to make it crisp.
Kids: This burrito can be served as a bowl if folding a burrito is too hard! Do not add spicy peppers or chipotle powder. Also, substitute spicy peppers with bell peppers.
