  • 1 cup white rice, cooked
  • 1 cup Morningstar burger crumbles, or other meat
  • Mexican or Colby Jack cheese, shredded
  • 1 can low fat refried beans
  • Package small flour tortillas
  • Olive oil
  • Red sauce



Step 1

Start by sauteing meat crumbles withminimal amount of olive oil (probably 1/2 teaspoon or more if needed). Saute over medium heat. I usually cook until the meat crumbles are thawed and then a bit more to make sure everything is heated well. You can check by taking a spoon and poking the pieces to see if they are still hard or thawed. This takes about 3 minutes.

Cook your rice according to package directions. I used one cup water for 1 cup rice. Boiled the water. Added the rice, covered, then let it sit for 5 minutes.

Have your rice, meat crumbles, shredded cheese, refried beans, red sauce, and tortillas spread out on a table for easy access as you make your burritos.

Once you are ready, add ingredients to burritos from bottom to top in the following order: meat on bottom, then cheese, rice, and beans on top. Fold into burritos.

Place in greased pan, fold side down. I like to use a circular cake pan instead of aluminum foil. I can usually fit about 4 burritos in this type of pan. Place pan in toaster oven at 350 degrees fahrenheit and bake for about 10 minutes or until browned and slightly hardened.

Note: if just now turning on oven, you may want to add a minute to the cook time so it can heat up.

When done, place individual burritos on small plates and drizzle with desired amount of red sauce.
