"Veggie" (The Word That Dare Not Speak Its Name) Burritos

I'm not a vegetarian, at all. But every now and then I want a burrito with no meat, but more than just beans and cheese. Today was one of those days. I went to Astro Burger, because it's close. Their "Veggie Burrito" is filled with refried beans, cheese, tomato, lettuce, onions and avocado. I asked for salsa on the side, which turned out to be a quite good pico de gallo. I brought it home, drizzled that on top, along with a healthy dose of Cholula.

It was surprisingly delicious. It reminded me of long-lost Anelcy's, which used to be my favorite, although without their amazing dirty salsa roja. All the vegetables were freshly sliced, the avocado was perfectly ripe, the lettuce was a nice mix (no iceberg), and the whole thing was lightly griddled.

Got me to thinking about other veggie burrito options, and so I searched the board. Not only has a "veggie burrito" apparently NEVER been mentioned here, but until this post neither has the word "veggie," in any context. I'm not a fan of the word (it always conjures up nasty '70s alfafa sprouts for me), but I find it shocking.

Anyway, where do you get your burrito with no meat and a variety of fillings?
