Recipe: Black Bean and Rice Burritos

This recipe for Black Bean and Rice Burritos uses Spanish Rice as its main ingredient… this quick and easy recipe is a supper time favorite… all the fresh flavors… wrapped in a tortilla…. so satisfying and so good.


You can use my recipe for Spanish Rice or you can make your own… either way.. you can make this ahead of time and refrigerate it... heat it when you start to make supper. You can get it all put together in under 30 minutes… now how cool is that?

I used 1 cup of fresh salsa… you can find fresh salsa in the produce section in the supermarket.. it really is so much better than using bottled salsa.

You can add chicken to this dish… leftover chicken, rotisserie chicken or cook two boneless chicken breasts…

If you decide to cook the breasts…

Spray a skillet with olive oil cooking spray…heat over medium high heat… add the chicken and sear both sides… add one envelope of taco seasoning or my taco seasoning recipe to 1 cup of water … add it to the chicken and put a lid on the pan… lower heat to simmer and cook 5 minutes, turn them over and cook until they are no longer pink in the middle… about another 6-7 minutes.

Remove the chicken and cut into very small pieces or shred… add it back to the pan and add the rice mixture to it… mixing the taco sauce (from cooking the chicken in the pan)thoroughly with the rice… heat through.

Try this terrific and easy recipe!
