Leftover Beef and Bean Taco meat stretched with rice and rolled in a flour tortilla.
Burritos are an easy handheld meal. You can get all of your food groups in one delicious bundle. They are very filling (you usually only need one) and inexpensive. The only drawback is that they can be a little difficult to roll. Luckily for me, my husband is pretty good at it so he is the Official Burrito Roller of the house (he's also the Oficial Crescent Roll Roller and the Official Broken Cookie Eater...he has many titles).

These burritos were a great use for leftover Beef and Bean Taco meat. We had tacos for 2 nights but on the 3rd night, there wasn't quite enough leftover for two meals. So, I added rice, tomatoes, and more spices making the leftovers last for another four meals. I love being able to reuse leftovers and get even more bang for my buck. I really only had to cook once for 2 different dinners that lasted all week.

Beef and Bean BurritosCook time: 20-30 minutes
1 cup dry rice
1 1/2 cups water
1 13.5oz can of diced tomatoes
1 pinch of salt
2-3 cups leftover Beef and Bean Taco meat (or any taco meat)
Place dry rice in rice cooker. Mix in the water, tomatoes, and salt. Turn on the cooker and cook until done.
Meanwhile, reheat the leftover taco meat in a large skillet over low to medium heat. Mix in the cooked rice and season as desired. Remove from heat.
Heat 12-inch flour tortillas, covered with a damp paper towel, in the microwave for about 15-30 seconds until warm and pliable.
Place about 1-2 cups of the meat mixture on a tortilla. Add cheese, lettuce, and any other desired toppings but try not to over fill the tortilla. Then roll up the burrito and wrap in foil. There are many instructions on how to roll a burrito online.
Makes about 4-6 burritos.
