1/3 cup pinto beans
1/3 cup chicken -- diced/skinless
1 tbsp guacamole

To make burrito, steam the tortilla in a steamer, or in a moist towel in the microwave for 20 seconds on HIGH.

Build the burrito of your choice by arranging the ingredients across the center of a tortilla in the order listed. Leave
room at each end for folding/

To fold, turn the left and right ends of the tortilla over the filling. Fold the bottom of the tortilla up over the
ingredients, then continue rolling the burrito up into a tight package. Serves 1.

For the Spanish Rice: Combine all the ingredients in a medium saucepan over high heat.

Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer the rice for 20-25 minutes, or until the rice is tender.
Serves 4.

NOTES : I garnished with cilantro, extra chopped avocado, and a cheesy rice dish that I put in a biscuit cutter to
make it stand up like they do at the restaurants. I also had sour cream on the side and salsa.
