Beef and Black Bean Burritos


1 cup white rice ($.20)

1 pkg. 8 burrito shells ($1.29)

1 lb. ground beef ($1.59) Ground chuck on sale this past week at Harvey's!

1 15 oz. can diced tomatoes ($.29) Did you see this week’s amazing deal!

2 pkg. taco seasoning (or substitute 1 Tbsp chili powder, 1 Tbsp ground cumin, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp onion powder, and 1 tsp cornstarch) ($.20)

1 cup shredded cheese ($.67) Omit if dairy free

(My family likes them plain jane)


1. In a small saucepan, cook the 1 cup of rice as indicated on package instructions. Set aside with lid on to keep warm.

2. Warm burrito shells according to package directions.

3. In large skillet, brown the ground beef. Drain, rinse and return to skillet.

4. In the skillet, combine the beef, black beans, diced tomatoes, and seasoning packages. Simmer over medium heat until hot.

5. Spoon the rice and then the meat mixture into warmed burrito shells.

6. Dress with lettuce, shredded cheese, or sour cream as desired. Combine leftovers with some cheese and reheat to make a great dip to eat with tortilla chips or doritos the next day for lunch.
