Ground Beef Burritos with Veggies

(Recipe by Miranda Mowbray, Biting Life)


Ingredients (serves 4 hungry people):

1 package spicy yellow rice (my favorite is Zatarain’s New Orleans Garlic Butter Rice)

1 lb lean ground beef (MIH*: ground turkey)

1 cup frozen corn (MIH: fresh corn)

2 cups black beans (I cooked up some dried beans, but you could also use canned)

chopped tomatoes and lettuce (optional)

1 cup reduced-fat Mexican shredded cheese (MIH: don’t use cheese)

8 flour tortillas (MIH: whole wheat tortillas)



Cook rice according to package directions; set aside.

Meanwhile, cook your beef with canola oil in a medium-size sauté pan until done, and set to dry on paper towels.

Sprinkle corn with salt and pepper; steam according to package directions.

Place one tortilla on a flat surface.

Add ground beef, cheese, rice, beans, corn, tomato, and lettuce onto the tortilla.

Fold tortilla (see video below for instructions!) and place seam-side down onto a plate.

Repeat last three steps until all tortillas are made.

Serve immediately and enjoy!
