Black Bean & Butternut Squash Burritos

These black bean and butternut squash burritos are divine. I’d love to say that this recipe is paleo, but the truth is, I like carbs far too much. However, this is a delicious clean eating recipe. It’s vegetarian, and vegan, and so naturally, Mr. Man insists that the best way to eat it is with meat. He added leftover taco meat to his. He’s happy, I’m happy, and this recipe… well if this recipe COULD be happy, it WOULD be happy. Instead, this recipe is delicious. Mouth wateringly delicious. Unapologetically delicious. And you too can make some!

It’s modified from the recipe posted in 2011 from OhSheGlows – and amazing!
