Spicy Bean and Rice Burritos

We’re having one of those weeks. There are about a million things to do and roughly eight hours less in each day. Or, at least it seems that way.

This meal was an absolute savior. I put it on the menu because we had everything in the house already but was thrilled when I realized it came together in less than ten minutes. For such a quick meal, these have a lot of flavor. It’s one of those meatless meals that is so hearty you don’t miss the meat at all.

Spicy Bean and Rice Burritos
(from Tasty Kitchen)
Serves 4-6

1 T. vegetable oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 t. chili powder
1 chipotle pepper in adobo, minced + 1 T. sauce
1 t. ground cumin
4 dashes cayenne pepper
1 can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1/3 c. water
2 c. cooked brown rice
1/4 c. fresh salsa

Shredded lettuce
Cheddar Cheese
Sour cream

Heat oil in a large skillet until shimmering. Add garlic, chili powder, chipotle, adobo sauce, cumin and cayenne and cook, stirring until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

Stir in beans and water. Bring to a simmer, then lower heat. Cook for 8 minutes, mashing about half of the beans halfway through. Remove from heat.

Stir in rice and salsa.

Divide bean mixture between tortillas. Top with lettuce, cheese and sour cream.
