Bean and Rice Burrito's

This is a great recipe to help use up left overs and a great option for a busy day since it is quick and easy.

Serves 4

1/4 c. Dry Onion
1/2 c. Water
1 1/2 c. Cooked Rice
1 can Pork and Beans
1/4 - 1/2 c. Salsa
4 Tortilla's

Put the dry onion and the water in a skillet to soak and soften.  Add the cooked rice, pork and beans and salsa.  Heat through, adding more water if needed for a nice texture.  Wrap in tortilla's and serve.

We will often add sour cream or grated cheese into the burrito.  Since that is not always food storage compatible, I do not include it in the recipe.  I also promise to post my tortilla recipe later.  Just like bread or rolls it is a wonderful way to add variety to your menu using stuff you already have on hand. 

This is also a great meal to eat just plain, over toast or over a bed of lettuce in the spring when you can harvest that from your garden.
