Why I Love This Recipe

My aunt/best friend Melanie created these as a healthier alternative to the refried bean/meat laden burritos that you see the most recipes for.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 Red Pepper cut into thin slices, 1 Green pepper cut into thin slices, 1 onion cut into thin slices, 1 packet taco/burrito seasoning, Mexican taco cheese, Carlina Black Beans and Rice w/seasonings, burrito wraps, 2 tbps butter, 3 tbsp vegetable oil, Salsa, Sour Cream


1. Prepare rice and beans as directed.

2. In seperate pan place peppers and onions, oil and entire packet of taco seasoning.

3. Add 1-2 Tbsp water. Simmer.

4. Once rice is done and peppers/onions are tender, you will begin to assemble the burritos.

5. Preheat oven to 350F.

6. Place a layer of cheese onto each burrito wrap then a spoonful of rice/bean mixture, a spoonful of pepper/onion mixture, and a spoon of salsa.

7. Wrap up and place seam side down on a foil lined cookie sheet.

8. Bake for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted.

9, Serve with additional salsa and sour cream

Amy's variation is to cook beef or chicken strips and add them to the burritos for those meat lovers.
