Black Bean Burritos

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

Compassion Over Killing

black bean burrito

Michelle Riley/The HSUS

Serves 6

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.
