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

  • 1/2 pound lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • 3/4 cup frozen corn, thawed

Nutritional Facts

1 burrito (calculated without toppings) equals 452 calories, 13 g fat (5 g saturated fat), 39 mg cholesterol, 1,115 mg sodium, 56 g carbohydrate, 9 g fiber, 21 g 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.
  3. 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.
