Beef Burritos With Pepper Jack Cheese and Baked Beans


  • 1/2 pound beef sirloin ground
  • 2 teaspoons Garlic minced
  • 1 cup Salsa chunky, divided
  • 2 cups brown or white rice cooked
  • 6 9-inch tortillas whole wheat
  • 1 15-ounce can Black beans drained and rinsed
  • 1 11-ounce can corn kernels drained
  • 2 cups Pepper jack cheese shredded
  • 1/2 cup Green Onion sliced including green tops


  • In medium non-stick skillet, brown ground beef and garlic over medium heat. Break beef mixture up into smaller chunks with a spoon. Drain fat and stir in 1/2 cup of the salsa; set aside.
  • Spread 1/3 cup of rice on center of a tortilla, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Scatter about 2 tablespoons of beans and 1-1/2 tablespoons of corn over rice. Spread 1/3 cup of the beef mixture and 1/4 cup of the cheese over corn. Top with 2 teaspoons of the salsa and a few pieces of green onion. Fold in two opposite edges of tortilla one inch each and roll up. Place on microwave-safe dish, seam side down.
  • Repeat with remaining tortillas. Place burritos in a microwave oven and heat 1 minute or until heated through. Serve with remaining salsa and baked beans.
