Rice & Beef Burritos

While shopping, I found these neat, organic rice mix boxes... Usually, I'm not a huge fan of boxed products, but these looked tasty and easy.  I made one as a basic side with just meat and veggie.  My second box, I decided to get creative, uh oh... LOL.  It was Taco Tuesday, and I didn't feel like normal tacos, so here's what I came up with...

Rice & Beef Burritos
serves 4, total time 40 min

1 lb ground beef 93/7
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp chili powder
1 package boxed rice mix (I used Lundberg Spanish rice)
2 c water
1 can (15oz) Black beans, rinsed and drained
8-10 taco-sized flour tortillas
1 jar salsa, divided
1 1/2 c shredded cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cook ground beef with cumin and chili powder in a large skillet, until done.  Remove beef and set aside.
In same skillet, add rice mix, water, and beans.  Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium and cook covered for 7-8 min, or until rice is tender.  Stir in cooked beef.
Remove from heat, stir in 1/2 cup of salsa and 1/2 cup of cheese.
In a greased baking dish, add a 1/2 cup salsa to bottom.  Then taking tortillas, spoon rice mixture onto each tortilla, add a sprinkle of cheese, roll it up, place in dish.  Repeat until all tortillas are rolled.
You might end up with extra rice mixture, it's ok, it tastes great as a leftover.
Top burritos with remaining salsa, and shredded cheese. Cover with aluminum foil, and bake for 20-25 min.
Enjoy with a side salad, or broccoli like we did!
