Serves 8 (serving size: 1 burrito)

These burritos are so flavorful and simple to make. Lunch comes together in 20 minutes. The spinach-mushroom filling is packed with healthy ingredients, but the ooey-gooey cheese is what sells kids on this combo.

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add onion, garlic, jalapeño, and mushrooms; sauté 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Gradually add spinach; cook 1 to 2 minutes, stirring until wilted. Stir in lime juice, salt, and cumin. Add rice and beans; cook, stirring constantly, 1 minute or until thoroughly heated. Add cheese, stirring until melted.

Step 2

Warm tortillas according to package directions. Spoon about 2/3 cup mushroom mixture down center of each tortilla; roll up. Serve with salsa, if desired.

Step 3

Kids Can Help: The kids can help scoop the mushroom mixture into the tortillas and then roll them up.

Yummy. Good for a meatless meal. I didn't use the jalapeño in the recipe as I do not like spicy and cheated by using a boxed bean/rice product.

Really delicious (who doesn't like lime & cumin?) and comes together so fast! Tip - on Sunday chop ingredients through mushrooms and store in Tupperware for a super fast (10 mins?) weeknight meal. This is a keeper.
