On the weekends, I love to prep cook and plan some meals for the week. I was looking through my pantry and had some rice, a can of refried beans, and some green enchilada sauce, so I decided to make burritos. It’s an easy meal when your short on time, or tired from a busy day. It makes an easy meal that’s filling and easy on your wallet too.
I used vegan refried beans, white rice, and a spinach tortilla for my recipe. This is a great base recipe so feel free to add extras like fresh cilantro, salsa, lettuce, or tomatoes, and make it your own!
Vegan Note: Read the label on the refried beans and make sure it’s vegan, some are made with lard.
Yield: 4 burritos
2 cups cooked rice (brown, wild, white, jasmine, black, any kind you like)
4 large burrito size tortillas (spinach, tomato, flour, any kind you like)
1 can 14 oz. refried beans
1/3 cup enchilada sauce (red or green)
Cook rice, per directions. Take one tortilla and spread 1/3-1/2 cup of beans in the middle section. Next add 1/3-1/2 cup of cooked rice, and top with 1-2 tbsp. of the enchilada sauce.
Fold in the sides and roll up from the bottom. Cut on the bias and serve with your favorite salsa.
