Black Bean and Corn Burritos

Black beans and corn have been a favorite combination for me since getting pregnant. I wanted something simple and quick for dinner, so I decided on burritos.

Black Bean & Corn Burrito

Ingredients:

Flour torillas

1 can of black beans

1.5 cups of frozen corn

1 cup of brown rice, prepared

shredded cheese

salsa

plain yogurt

Preparation:

1. Prepare the brown rice.

2. Prepare the frozen corn, following the instructions on the bag. After the corn is cooked, add the black beans, and cook until warmed.

3. Take a tortilla shell, add some brown rice, followed by the black bean and corn mixture, add cheese, and top with salsa and plain yogurt.

I really like these. It was much lighter than the New Mexican and Mexican food I’ve become accustomed to lately. Plus, it was a great way to make sure that I am getting a balanced meal–brown rice, beans for protein, corn and a homemade (low sodium) salsa for veggies, and cheese and yogurt for dairy. Yum. I think this will be a regular meal at our house.
