Ingredients

  • 1 cup uncooked white rice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 2 14 ounce cans diced tomatoes and green chiles
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 2 15 ounce cans black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 15 ounce can corn, drained
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar divided
  • 1 10 ounce can red enchilada sauce
  • **Fresh chopped cilantro optional
  • 6-10 large flour burrito tortillas

Instructions

  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  • Add rice and onions and cook until rice is slightly browned and onions are tender
  • Stir in tomatoes and green chiles, water, chili powder, and cumin.
  • Bring mixture to a boil. Then reduce heat, cover, and simmer until rice is tender, about 15-18 minutes.
  • When rice is tender, uncover. Add beans, corn, and 1 cup of shredded cheddar to the rice mixture (Add cilantro now, too, if you're using). Stir to combine.
  • Scoop rice mixture into tortillas.
  • Fold over 2 opposite sides of the tortilla, then roll into a burrito.
  • Place rolled burritos in a lightly greased 9"x13" baking dish.
  • Pour enchilada sauce on top of the burritos. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top.
  • Bake at 350° for about 15 minutes, until cheese is melted and burritos are heated through.
