These are so much better than just your basic frozen burritos from the store. You will not be sad about having some of these stashed in the freezer. Great for a quick dinner or lunch. The kids and husband loved them!
I looked at several burrito recipes, took my 3 favorite and used the parts that I liked best from each to come up with this recipe. One of the beauties of burritos is that you can adapt and customize them to your liking.
I just threw the rice ingredients in my rice cooker and then started working on other stuff. I prefer fewer large chunks of tomato, so I whirled those around in a food processor a bit first. With the broth, garlic, and tomatoes in there, it is a flavorful rice and the cilantro adds the perfect finishing touch. You might even want to make extra to serve on the side!
Mashing some of the beans helps to bind the filling together. I used my food processor again to quickly chop up the onion. Then I measured out the seasonings in advance so they could be quickly added after the onion had started cooking.
Instead of using just sour cream, I decided to try this Greek yogurt and hot sauce combo. A fun way to add even more flavor! I forgot to spread it on the tortillas for the pictures, so I just put a dollop on top of the filling. Either way works.
