Open Faced Burrito


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I love burritos, but they can pack on calories quickly because of the calorie dense tortilla. To make it more balanced, I use a small tortilla (81 calories) and pile fresh spinach, black beans, grilled bell peppers a little shredded cheese etc on top. I then eat it with a knife and fork. Since I'm not trying to wrap the tortilla around everything, I can fill up on healthy veggies with a lot less tortilla.
