Black Bean Burritos
Simple enough for a lunch or a weeknight supper, so get out the hot sauce
1 15-ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 cup salsa
1 cup cooked brown rice
12 6-inch flour tortillas
1 cup shredded leaf lettuce or spinach
1 tomato, diced
Combine the black beans, salsa, and rice in a saucepan and simmer gently for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat, cover, and let sit for 5 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.
