  1. 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!
  2. this was a good idea and i would like it just fine but my family likes meat so i added chicken breast and mixed the rice and chicken together and it was a hit! Thanx
  3. This was a easy and tasty vegie burrito. I used green enchilada sauce instead of the red. Thanks Ocean~Ivy.
