Low FODMAP burritos
Ahh burritos, I think these might be one of my favourite Mexican dishes. When I was young, we used to eat this quite often at home. The entire family loved it. We used to make burritos from package from the supermarket. Included was a spices mix, a crème fraîche spread and of course the tortillas. Now I prefer making things from scratch, so I made my own low FODMAP burritos, filled with minced meat. They taste just as good as I remember, or maybe even better 😉
Homemade gluten-free tortillas
Last week, I shared my recipe to make low FODMAP tortillas from scratch. I used these tortillas for this recipe. It costs a bit of time to make tortillas from scratch, I think it will take you about an hour, but then you do have homemade low FODMAP tortillas!
I can imagine that you don’t always feel like making your own tortillas or have time to do that. Especially after a day of work or on another busy moment. In that case, you can always use store-bought low FODMAP tortillas too. I often use corn tortillas when I am short on time.
Low FODMAP burritos: vegetarian option
I use minced meat in this recipe (chicken is also possible). Do you want to make these burritos vegetarian? Then you can use a low FODMAP vegetarian meat replacement. I like to use Quorn mince and Quorn pieces.
