Healthy Veggie Burritos

Serving Size: 8

The Old El Paso Stand’ N Stuff Taco Shells were perfect for creating a not over loaded burrito.  For this recipe I used farm fresh veggies that were in season at the time.  To keep my burritos on the healthier side I omitted cheese and sour cream, instead I used lots of fresh zucchini, red peppers and sweet summer corn.  I, also, used Old El Paso Mexican Rice for a little extra filler.  I served chunky mild salsa along side the tacos for a little added kick.
