  • 2 cups leftover pre-cooked rice
  • juice from 2 limes
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 3-4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 15 ounce can black beans
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tbsp hot sauce, or to taste
  • 4-6 flour tortillas


In a large bowl, toss together the fresh cilantro with the rice and drizzle with lime juice. Heat in the microwave on on the stove just until hot.

In a separate large skillet, sautee the onion and garlic in olive oil for 2 - 3 minutes, or until onion is soft.

Reduce heat to medium low and add black beans and remaining ingredients (except flour tortillas). Stir to combine, and allow to cook until heated through, about 5 minutes.

Spoon rice and beans onto flour tortillas, and add any additional toppings you want, such as vegan cheese, salsa, avocado slices, black olives or non-dairy sour cream. Wrap your bean and rice burritos and serve hot.
