I know you guys have been waiting for this Tulum burrito recipe for so long. I’m sorry for the delay, but its finally here and I promise you it was deff worth the wait. Its a simple recipe with ingredients you have in your pantry and fridge, but it is oh so satisfying.

These Tulum Burritos were inspired from my trip to Tulum in feb. we had them at Burrito Amor & other places, they were soooooo good and felt super nourishing. You can make the rice & beans in advance. You can also use the left overs and turn them into tacos, enchiladas, quesadilla, or bowls. The choice is endless. I hope you guys make this and enjoy it as much as we did. If you do make this would love to hear back on what you thought. leave a comment here & don’t forget to tag me @zheelicious.
