Crispy Bean & Cheese Burritos


• 1 bag (3.5 oz.) boil-in-bag brwn rice
• 1 cup salsa
• 1/3 cup chopped cilantro (I leave this out if I don't already have it)
• 1 ripe avocado - cut into 1/2 inch pieces
• 1 tablespoon lime juice
• 6 soft taco sized tortillas
• 1 cup shredded pepper jack cheese (or cheddar if you prefer)
• 1 can (15.5 oz.) black beans, drained and rinsed


Prepare rice according to package directions, about 10 minutes. Drain and place in a medium-size bowl. Stir in salsa and cilantro; set aside. In a small bowl, gently stir together avocado pieces with lime juice; set aside.

Place tortillas on work surface and sprinkle 2 tablespoons cheese in center of each, from left to right. Top cheese with a heaping 1/4 cup black beans. Place a heaping 1/3 cup rice mixture over beans then divide avocado pieces among tortillas. Fold up like an envelope; repeat with remaining tortillas.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat top and bottom of burritos with nonstick cooking spray. Place 3 burritos in skillet, seam-side down; cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until lightly browned and crisp. Turn burritos over and cook another 2 minutes. Repeat with remaining burritos, reducing heat if they get too browned.
