Vegan Chipotle Cheeseburger Wrap

Before I was on a vegan diet I splurged on a good cheeseburger every once in awhile, but even then the best burgers were the ones that were loaded with fresh veggies and lots of “stuff.”  So it was only a matter of time before I came up with the perfect version of an awesome loaded vegan cheeseburger and it is sooo delicious.  It’s one of my go-to vegan comfort foods and is fairly quick to put together, so it’s a perfect last minute meal (I also tend to have all the ingredients on hand which is an added bonus).

So the next time you’re home alone and want to stay healthy but splurge at the same time, give this a try!
