Quick Brown Rice and Bean Burritos

BY : PUBLISHED : April 3rd, 2013 UPDATED: August 5th, 2022

I don't know about you but I always have cooked brown rice in my fridge, it makes whipping up meals like this a snap throughout the week. This mixture is quick, easy and so good it can even be eaten on it's own! I like to serve these with salsa verde.
