southwest burritos...

baked southwest brown rice

1 cup brown rice
2 cups water
1 1/2 tsp chili powder
1 1/2 tsp cumin
dried onion
1 1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup frozen corn
1/2 can black beans; drained & rinsed

Combine all ingredients in baking dish, stirring well to evenly distribute seasonings. Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees 1-1 1/2 hours, until water is absorbed & rice is tender. Fluff with a fork.

Put about 1/2 cup baked rice, grated cheddar cheese and salsa in a flour tortilla and wrap up like a package (tucking ends of tortilla in). Brown on all sides over med heat until edges are crispy. Serve with sour cream & salsa.
This is a great meatless meal. Besides the fact that it is good for you, it tastes excellent and is very filling. Everyone at my house liked these. The brown rice really takes on the flavor of the chili powder & cumin without making it too spicy. Of course, you could make it spicier by adding jalapenos or chili's to the rice.

First, these things are awesome. Second, I suggested that they be called "Annemuritos" but that got shot down pretty quickly.

This sounds very good. I was looking for more things to bake as meals, this one sounds tasty!
