Vegan Red Chili Burrito Skillet 

Get a skillet, immediately. 

Hi, my name is Lauren and I am super lazy. This vegan red chili burrito skillet is a lazy gal’s dream! Beans and corn, sauteed with a quick homemade red chili burrito sauce. Simmered until your house smells freaking amazing. Then tossed with tortillas cut into strips. Covered with vegan cheese. It tastes like a smothered burrito in casserole form!

This is a great meal to memorize. Then you can use any filling you want or have on hand. I used black beans and corn cause it is just really simple. However, this can be made with anything. Any veggies, any protein. Whatever you would normally use in a burrito. 

Then all you really need to do is whisk together the quickest and easiest burrito sauce. Very easy to find ingredients, and just a simple whisk. Then you use that as the simmering sauce for your burrito skillet filling! That is all stirred together with tortilla strips, and topped with vegan cheese that melts. 

Boom! A whole meal in one pan. Serve with some crispy tortilla chips for some crunch or maybe just top with vegan sour cream and some cilantro. This is so adaptable, and can be developed to your liking. This vegan red chili burrito skillet is so freaking delicious, so freaking quick and so perfect for any night of the week!
