  • 1 (3.5 ounce) boil in bag brown rice
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1/3 cup cilantro (chopped)
  • 1 avocado (diced)
  • 1 Tablespoon lime juice
  • 6 soft taco flour tortillas
  • 2 cups shredded Mexican Blend cheese
  • 1 (15.5 ounce) can black beans (rinsed and drained)


  1. Cook the boil in bag brown rice according to package directions, about 10 minutes.
  2. Drain and place in a medium sized bowl. Add the salsa and cilantro and mix well, set aside.
  3. Put the diced avocado in a bowl and add the fresh lime juice and toss well. Set aside.
  4. Place the six tortillas on a work surface. Sprinkle 1/3 cup of shredded cheese in the center of each tortilla in a 3 inch strip. Top the cheese with 1/4 cup of black beans.
  5. Then place a heaping 1/3 cup of the rice mixture over the beans.
  6. Divide the avocado over the six tortillas.
  7. Fold up opposite sides and then the bottom and roll up to enclose the filling.

  1. These look great, but I am wondering about the cheese. It calls for 1 cup in the recipe, but the directions say to put 1/3 cup on each of six tortillas. Should there be 2 cups of cheese or do you mean 1/6 cup per? Not a huge deal, just wondering. :)
    • Hi Grace. Thanks so much for catching that. We added about 1/3 cup to each burrito, so the recipe now reads 2 cups of cheese. If you have a hard time rolling up the tortilla, you could reduce the cheese slightly. Hope this helps!!
  2. Oh my! These were just delicious. I used a bagged microwave brown rice (so easy!) and I always use a salsa with corn and red beans in it. Yum! For cheese I used a cheddar mix as well as pepper jack, and it gave it just the right zing. I didn’t use spray, but put a little oil in the pan, and it worked very well. I need to practice folding the tortillas though! ?. The flavors of the cilantro and avocado with the lime juice made this very flavorful. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe!
