Excellent burrito. I used the bison as I usually keep some in the freezer since it's so easy to get here on the prairies. Simply loved the use of brown rice (something that I always keep but seriously under use). The seasonings were right on point and so good. Used reduced fat cheddar and skipped the lettuce. Would certainly make again.

We loved this easy to make, great tasting burrito! You were not exaggerating when you said they were bulging! I used ground venison, lavash for the tortilla, and hot pepper jack cheese instead of cheddar. I also omitted the sour cream as I am not a big fan. I picked a medium spicy salsa and chopped up a little fresh tomato as a topping. I added a little bit of salt to the brown rice/refried bean mixture. This was fast, easy and I really enjoyed it. It was even really good when I had another burrito for leftovers for lunch today. I'd definitely make this again. Thanks!

These were great! I ground up vension from DH's deer this year, so nice and fresh/frozen, lol. I didn't use up all the beans specified for each burrito. Just enough to add the flavor. I did sprinkle with salt just before rolling up. Very filling and great for a winter's lunch! We will be having the rest for dinner and I'm going to have to add some cheese, with cutting back on the beans which I'm sure must add the additional calories, cheese is allowed I think, lol.
