I had some pumpkin puree that needed to be used and I was in the mood for some texmex flavours. A while ago I made some Sweet Potatoes and Black Bean Enchiladas that I enjoyed and I thought that pumpkin would do really well in a similar dish. I decided to go with burritos rather than enchiladas this time. With the pumpkin puree already made the dish was pretty quick to make. The natural sweetness of the pumpkin went really well with the texmex spiciness. I topped the burritos with salsa, sour cream and shredded cheddar cheese.
