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.
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.
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!
