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!
