I love faux frying foods using panko. This crunchy, spicy chicken would be great on a taco salad.

SP_Stepf's Baked Veggie Burritos
Very Good 4.3/5
(47 ratings)

Black beans, sweet potatoes and greens are spiced up and baked in egg roll wrappers to create burritos that are heavy on taste and light on calories. (Feel free to change this recipe with what you've got in the fridge. No sweet potatoes? Try zucchini or butternut squash. Swap kale for spinach, Swiss chard or your favorite green! Instead of black beans, try kidney, pinto or garbanzo beans.)
