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.

As the wind started picking up today, and we were famished, it was such a pleasant surprise to come in from the cold and make these quick, wonderful burritos. I used a mixture of ground lean pork, and ground lean beef to make these filling treats. I did reduce the meat to 1/4 lb. of meat, and replaced the "filling" to extra beans, and extra brown rice. When I warmed the beans and rice up in the microwave, I threw in a diced fresh tomato, chopped onion, cumin, and fresh cilantro. Added more cumin when browning the meat. Used whole wheat tortillas and so yummy. Will keep making this so many times, MarraMamba! This is wonderful!

Excellent. I used extra lean ground beef and substituted the refried beans with black beans instead. My boys loved this dinner!

Used ground buffalo meat and mixed the brown rice and refried black beans in with the meat for convienence. This is a nice mild burrito mix that can be spiced up using jalapeno jack cheese or spicy salsa. Great for all tastes.
