These baked burritos are a great way to use leftover cooked rice. Try them with brown rice for a whole grain boost.

  • 8 flour tortillas (10 inch)
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 1/2 cup cheese (shredded)

Directions

2. Peel the onion, and chop it into small pieces.

3. Drain the liquid from the cooked (or canned) kidney beans.

4. Mix the rice, chopped onion, and beans in a bowl.

5. Put each tortilla on a flat surface.

6. Put 1/2 cup of the rice and bean mix in the middle of each tortilla.

7. Fold the sides of the tortilla to hold the rice and beans.

tastes great but I don't know how they came up with Total Cost: $3.22 and Serving Cost: $0.40. An 8oz bag of cheddar cheese normally costs $2.50 and up; rarely on sale for $2.00.

My family and I already make something like this except to save additional money my children make homemade tortillas with a press. It's actually not very hard or time consuming and they think it's fun. It's actually now my 11 y/o's job when we have anything with tortillas.
