 ½ c. salsa

½ c. water

¼ c. instant brown rice

1 15-oz. can low-sodium black beans, rinsed and drained

12 oz. strip steak, trimmed of visible fat and sliced thinly crosswise

¼ tsp. black pepper

1 Tbsp. canola oil

4 8-inch whole wheat tortillas

½ c. shredded sharp cheddar

¼ c. guacamole or sour cream

2 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro


  1. In a small saucepan, bring salsa and water to a boil. Stir in rice, reduce heat to a simmer, cover, and cook for 5 minutes. Add beans, return to a simmer, and cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until rice is tender and most of the liquid is absorbed (about 5 minutes).
  2. Meanwhile, sprinkle steak with pepper. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add steak pieces and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned and cooked through, 3-5 minutes.
  3. Assemble the burritos: divide steak among the tortillas and top with rice mixture, cheddar, guacamole or sour cream, and cilantro.
