A slimmed-down version of burrito awesomeness

These mini burritos have all the goods of a typical burrito in an appetizer size portion. We skipped the food truck foil and refried beans to make these worthy of a spot at your dinner party. Roasting the veggies results in a caramelized flavor, making for a much more interesting bite and an overall better burrito.
