mango, black bean & caramelized veggie burrito

I created this Mango, Black Bean & Caramelized Veggie Burrito recipe because I wanted something that was really tasty and fun, but also featured vitamin C superstars, like mangos, since vitamin C is an important nutrient for immune health.

Though I do punch up the lemon to brighten the flavor.
