Healthful Burritos w/ Rice & Beans

  1. Warm/cook black beans and corn.  I used canned black beans, so after cooking I rinsed them in cold water to get the mushyness off of them, drained, and put both of the veggies into a bowl.  Add diced tomatoes and chopped onions, mix well and sprinkle with a bit of lime juice and a bit of chopped cilantro (or parsley, if you prefer).
  2. Grill meats or cook on the stove as you like.  You can use a bit of mexican seasoning if you like, I recommend those by Auntie Arwen (I use their mild fajita spice when cooking for my mom because it's flavorful, but not hot).  When meats are cooked, let rest for a moment, then slice on the diagonal into strips, or chop into cubes.
  3. Prepare your rice & beans, heat up the refried beans (this part is easy!  the rice takes about 30 minutes, however).
  4. Assemble your burritos using  meats & salsa.  You can put your rice & refried beans in the burritos too, or you can serve those on the side.  Top burritos with cheese, lettuce and a small dollop of sour cream or lots of guacamole.
