Black Bean Burritos

Simple enough for a lunch or a weeknight supper, so get out the hot sauce

Compassion Over Killing

  • Michelle Riley/The HSUS

Serves 6

1 15-ounce can (450g) black beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 cup (125ml) salsa
1 cup (225g) cooked brown rice
12 6-inch flour tortillas
1 cup (225g) shredded leaf lettuce or spinach
1 tomato, diced

Combine the black beans, salsa, and rice in a saucepan and simmer gently for three minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat, cover, and let sit for five minutes.

In an ungreased skillet, heat a tortilla until warm and soft, then spread a line of the bean mixture down the center. Top with lettuce, tomato, and more salsa, if desired.

Roll the tortilla around the filling, then repeat with the remaining tortillas.
