1 10-ounce package frozen cooked rice (about 2 cups)

1/4 cup sliced pickled jalapenos, plus 1 tablespoon brine

1 16-ounce can mild chili beans, undrained

3/4 cup frozen fire-roasted corn

1/2 cup roasted garlic salsa

12 ounces large shrimp, peeled, deveined and cut into chunks

1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro

1 ripe avocado

Juice of 1 lime, plus wedges for serving

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

4 burrito-size spinach tortillas

Sour cream, for serving


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Heat the rice as the label directs; keep warm. Chop 1 to 2 tablespoons jalapeños; set aside. Combine the beans, corn and salsa in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Bring to a simmer and cook until thickened, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the shrimp and simmer until cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in 1/4 cup cilantro, the chopped jalapenos and brine.
  2. Mash the avocado with the lime juice and remaining 1/4 cup cilantro in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Warm the tortillas in the microwave until softened, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Spread the avocado mixture in the center of each tortilla. Top with some of the shrimp-bean mixture, then top with the rice. Fold in the sides of the tortillas and roll up.
  4. Place the burritos seam-side down on a baking sheet and bake until warmed through, about 5 minutes. Serve with sour cream, lime wedges and pickled jalapeno slices.
