Taco Bell, move over! This is a wonderful vegetarian recipe. You can use fat free refried beans, sour cream, low fat cheese & this can be a healthy meal! 8)

Yum! bean rice and cheese, my fav. kind of burrito and i'm not a vegetarian :) thanks for the quick way to make up the spanish rice as well. i added some salsa to the beans and used home made enchilada sauce. I also toasted them in the fry pan a minuite on each side quick with a little oil, definately better than taco bell!
