Brown Rice and Bean Burrito — Meatless Monday

Make your Monday dinner simple with these fuss-free black bean burritos.
By: Nora Horvath

While burritos and wraps typically have a meaty element stuffed inside, swapping the usual beef, pork or chicken for hearty substitutes like beans and fresh veggies will give you a burrito that's every bit as filling as the classic recipe without sacrificing flavor.

This Brown Rice and Bean Burrito (pictured above) has many of the best fixings of a meaty burrito —  cheddar cheese, rice and a simple guacamole made from mashed avocado and lime —  but it stars black beans instead of meat. After layering the guac, beans, cheesy rice and carrots in a tortilla, add a dollop of your favorite store-bought salsa for a little extra bite. Bonus: These burritos are ready to eat in only 15 minutes, making them ideal for a busy Monday night.
