Burritos are one of my favorite dishes from Mexican cuisine. But somehow they are usually too big and too unwieldy for me. Maybe you know that problem, if everything falls out of the wrap ๐Ÿ™ˆ. If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed that I prefer smaller practical finger food snacks such as Empanadas, Dumplings or Croquettes ๐Ÿ˜‹. So I had the idea to fold the tortillas like Samosas by cutting the tortillas into four pieces to make small cones. I simply filled them with Mexican rice and baked them crunchy in the oven. That’s why I call them vegan Burrito Samosas.

Mexican rice with vegetables as filling for vegan Burrito Samosas

Mexican rice is very easy to make. You just need rice, beans, corn, peppers, onions, garlic and a few spices. I used risotto rice because it sticks together better and I also like sticky rice more. Of course, you can also use any other types of rice or maybe you even have Risotto or a rice stir-fry left over from the previous day.
Basically, you can vary the filling however you like. Iโ€™m sure these Tortilla Samosas tastes also super delicious with a classic Samosas filling made of potatoes, peas, carrots and Indian spices.

How to fold Samosas with Tortillas (instructions)

To keep the Tortilla Samosas together, first mix some flour with a bit of water to make a thick, sticky paste. That’s like the glue.
1. First you cut up large Tortillas into quarters, (so that you can make 4 samosas cones from 1 tortilla.)
2. Then you start with one quarter. Fold one corner towards the center.
3. Apply some paste on the sides of the opposite corner.
4. Fold the applied corner over it to form a cone and seal.
5. Add 1-2 tbsp of the filling.
6. Apply the open end with paste.
7. Fold up and seal.
8. Thatโ€™s it! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Fresh Guacamole and creamy Cashew Dip for dipping

Of course, avocado should not miss when making Burritos! Not only is it super delicious, it also contains healthy fats and important vitamins, such as vitamin A, vitamin E and biotin. Therefore, I like to serve the vegan Burrito Samosas with a simple Guacamole. Also, I love serving a vegan cheesy dip made of cashews and seasoned with yeast flakes (optionally, you could also serve Hummus). Plus a spicy tomato salsa dip with some chilli, the burrito combo is just perfect ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป.

Mexican rice:

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 red onion finely chopped
  • 150 g Arborio rice (or other)
  • 2 garlic cloves finely chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper finely chopped
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp chili
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • salt, pepper
  • about 3 tbsp salsa sauce (optional)
  • tabasco (optional)
  • 1 tin black beans drained
  • 150 g corn drained
  • 50 g vegan cheese grated

Further ingredients:

  • 6 large tortillas (gluten-free if needed)
  • almond milk + oil (for brushing)
  • 3 tbsp flour + 5 tbsp water (to make a flour paste "glue")


  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 garlic clove finely chopped
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • salt, pepper

Cashew Dip:

  • 1 cup raw cashew nuts (150 g) (soaked overnight) *
  • 75 ml water
  • 2 tbsp yeast flakes
  • 1-2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp salt (to taste)
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder (to taste)
  • 1/4 tsp smoked paprika (optional)


Mexican Rice:

  • Cook rice in salted water (or vegetable broth) according packaging instructions.
  • Heat the oil in a skillet or pan and fry the onions briefly for 1-2 minutes.
  • Add the garlic and paprika and stir-fry for a while, so that the peppers soften slightly.
  • Then add smoked paprika, chili, cumin, salt and pepper and sautรฉ briefly.
  • Add rice and stir it all round so everything is well combined
  • Finally, stir in the beans and corn.
  • Allow the Mexican rice to cool and then fold in the grated cheese.

Fold Tortilla Samosas (instructions see text/ video above):

  • To make the flour paste (glue), mix flour and water in a small cup.
  • Cut the tortillas into 4 pieces and fold each quarter (as shown in the video above) to a cone. Apply the outer sides with a little paste and seal.
  • Fill the Tortilla Samosas with about 1-2 tbsp of Mexican rice (not too full,ย you should be able to close them easily). Apply the remaining open end with a little paste and fold up.
  • Repeat this process until all ingredients are used up.
  • Place the Burrito Samosas on a baking tray lined with baking paper (the fold side down). Brush with a little almond milk + oil.
  • Bake them in the preheated oven at 200โ„ƒ (392โ„‰) for about 15 minutes (or until lightly browned and crispy on top).


  • Halve the avocado, remove the core and puree with the remaining ingredients for the guacamole. Season to taste.


  • Blend all the ingredients for the cashew dip. Season to taste.
  • Enjoy! ๐Ÿ˜Š


  • If you have not soaked the cashews overnight, you can also cook them soft for just 10-15 minutes.
  • Youโ€™ll have some leftovers from the mexican rice, unless youโ€™ve nibbled on some while preparing it ๐Ÿ˜‹.

      Hi Julia,
      Thank you so much! So happy that you and your family liked them! ๐Ÿ˜Š
      To make the tortillas softer, you can heat them up in the microwave or in a pan briefly before folding.
      Lots of love,
