  1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the limeade concentrate, oil, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper; add pork. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for at least 20 minutes.
  2. For salsa, in a small bowl, combine the tomatoes, green pepper, onion, 1/4 cup cilantro, jalapeno, lime juice, garlic powder and remaining salt and pepper. Set aside.
  3. Meanwhile, cook rice according to package directions. Stir in remaining cilantro; keep warm. Drain and discard marinade. In a large nonstick skillet, saute pork for 5-6 minutes or until no longer pink; drain.
  4. Sprinkle 1/3 cup cheese off-center on each tortilla. Layer each with about 1/2 cup pork and 1/4 cup salsa; top with 1/2 cup rice mixture and 1/4 cup black beans. Fold sides and ends over filling. Serve with remaining salsa. Yield: 6 servings.

"Best homemade burritos I ever had. I also did sauteed onion/green pepper. The salsa is really good. I marinated the pork for 24 hours and it was a bit too 'limeade-y" for my liking. Next time i'll marinate it for less time. Meat was nice & tender."

"These were tasty, though it's basically a cold sandwich and different from what I was expecting. I marinated the meat for over 24 hours, and the lime flavor really came through. The recipe for salsa made LOTS, but it's good to have on hand. I used it later with some chicken enchiladas, and even added it as a salad ingredient."
