Makes 8 servings (Prep: 8 minutes, Cook: 12 minutes)


1 (20-ounce) package large burrito flour tortillas (10 inch)

1 (8.8-ounce) pouch Spanish-style ready-to-serve rice, Uncle Ben’s® Burrito Beef Mixture*recipe below

1 (16-ounce) jar pico de gallo

Toppings: diced tomatoes, sour cream, shredded Cheddar cheese, sliced jalapeños


1. Heat tortillas and rice according to package directions. Using a slotted spoon, evenly spoon Burrito Beef Mixture just below center of each tortilla; layer with desired amount of rice and pico de gallo. Top with diced tomatoes, sour cream, cheese, and sliced jalapeños, if desired. Fold bottom third of tortillas up and over filling, just until covered. Fold left and right sides of tortilla over, and roll up.

1 pound ground chuck

1 (16-ounce) can seasoned pinto beans, rinsed and drained

1 (8-ounce) package diced fresh yellow onion (about 2 cups)
