How to make our easy homemade Crispy Bean and Cheese Burritos recipe:

When starting this recipe, begin by cooking the boil in a bag rice according to the directions on the package. This should take about 10 minutes. 

Then, drain the rice and place it in a medium size bowl.

Add the cup of salsa to the rice, along with the cilantro and mix it all together well.

Next, take your ripe avocado and dice it up. After it is cut up, place it in a bowl and add the fresh lime juice to the avocado and toss it until the avocado is covered. 

Now, place the six tortillas on your counter and sprinkle ⅓ cup of shredded cheese in the center on each shell.

 Next, add a ¼ cup of the strained and washed black beans on each shell on top of the cheese. 

After that is done, scoop another ⅓ cup of the rice mixture on top of the beans for each of the shells. 

To finish building, spread the avocado evenly amongst the six shells. 

Now, fold in one side, then its opposite side, then begin to roll the bottom up to the top to keep the filling inside making your burrito shape. 

Then, spray the tops and bottoms of the burritos with nonstick cooking spray.

On a large nonstick skillet pan, heated to medium-high heat, place three of the burritos seams down for about 1 minute on each side or until they begin to get golden brown and crispy. 

Once those three are done, do the same for the remaining three, then eat and enjoy!
