Does anyone have a really good recipe for a veggie burrito with verde sauce? I have been searching for something, but it seems most recipes come up a bit short. I want something with a little rice, black beans, veggies and a great sauce to pull it all together topped with lettuce, tomatoes and guac.
The last verde sauce I made wasn't all that great, so i think I'm missing something.
Thank you!

It sounds like you have the filling you like, now you just need to adjust the sauce. What was the last one lacking?

What do you mean by "verde sauce"? Do you mean tomatillo salse verde, or something else?

I really love this Tomatillo salsa:

With raw tomatillos it is pretty sharp.

Other then that, I think a great veggie burrito would mostly come down to the beans, though to be fair I like good beans enough that some red rice, black/pinto beans, a bit of veg and some salsa on top would be lovely, so I might not be the best judge :).

Thank you all. My problems in the past, I think, have been that the burrito has been a little dry and I counted too much on the sauce to add the moisture. So I need to figure out how to add a little moisture to the filling, then add the sauce over the top. Does that make sense?
The last tomatillo sauce I made just wasn't that great. And I don't want it too spicy because I'm making them for a group and I am always afraid of overdoing it. I'd rather they each bump it up a little with salsa. Any ideas to bring moisture and flavor to this?

Cookie,

With the caveat that I never make burritos because I live on the West Coast where taquerias are more common than gas stations, and cheaper, some ideas:

- the beans should be wet, soaking in their cooking liquid, and drained in a slotted spoon just before putting them in the burrito
- more diced tomatoes
- two words: sour cream

Thank you! I live on the west coast as well and have had some superior burritos, which I have been trying to replicate. Moisture is the key, I know. But I don't eat dairy, so no sour cream or cheese. I will definitely add guac. Any ideas on a good verde sauce?

From my casual perusal, Avocado is about same fat content as good sour cream (15%), and is even better to boot :). I'm with fuzzy on this, bean liquor is very tasty and does nice things. Really good beans are cream and very different from some pasty kinda grainy beans you can get.

You should try that tomatillo sauce. It is special (and super easy, no cooking).

Made the burritos for an event this weekend...and they turned out great! Thanks, Paul, for the verde recipe. It was much better than the other one I had been using, although the ingredients weren't all that different. I started with rice and beans and added as many roasted veggies as I could, some herbs and spices, and topped with guac and the verde sauce. And there was sour cream for those who wanted it. Thank you all...
