After a busy day, this is a dish that I can get on the table fast. The recipe came about totally by accident: I started throwing things together and soon I had a winner! Everyone who has tried these burritos goes home with the recipe. —Amanda Alford, Hopedale, IL

Nutritional Facts

1 burrito (calculated without toppings): 452 calories, 13g fat (5g saturated fat), 39mg cholesterol, 1115mg sodium, 56g carbohydrate (4g sugars, 9g fiber), 21g protein.

Directions

  1. Heat rice according to package directions. Meanwhile, crumble beef into a 4-qt. microwave-safe dish. Add corn and beans; mix well. Microwave, covered, on high 4-5 minutes or until beef is no longer pink; drain. Stir in salsa and cheese; microwave 2-3 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Stir in rice.
  2. Spoon 3/4 cup beef mixture near the center of each tortilla; add additional ingredients of your choice. Fold bottom and sides of tortilla over filling and roll up.
    Freeze option: Cool beef mixture before making burritos; omit lettuce and sour cream from filling options. Individually wrap burritos in paper towels and foil; freeze in a resealable plastic freezer bag. To use, remove foil; place paper towel-wrapped burrito on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave on high until heated through, turning once. Let stand 15 seconds. Carefully open burritos and add additional filling ingredients as desired.
    Yield: 6 servings.
Editor's Note: This recipe was tested in a 1,100-watt microwave.
