Vegetarian Machaca Breakfast Burritos – Recipe!

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Vegetarian Machaca Breakfast Burritos are a quick fix for hungry people in the morning and can be eaten on the run.  Traditionally, machaca is a dried beef or sometimes shredded beef from Northern Mexico, but I prepared these burritos with a vegetarian meat substitute, so everyone in the family can enjoy this recipe.

I started with Beyond Beef Crumbles, but you can use any type of vegetarian or vegan ground meat alternative.  I sauteed the crumbles with an onion and a sliced chili pepper, then added beaten eggs to create an delicious filling for a morning burrito.  I used freshly diced avocado, salsa and cilantro leaves to top it all off, before I rolled it up for serving.  You can make a big skillet of this vegetarian machaca and let your family or friends spoon it into their own shell or roll them all up for them, and serve them on a big platter or wrap one in a paper towel to-go.
