Ingredients:

  • 2 cups cooked brown rice
  • 398-mL can refried beans (1 ¾ cups)
  • 341-mL can no salt added corn kernels (1 ½ cups)
  • 1/3 cup chopped pickled jalapenos (optional)
  • 1 rotisserie chicken, meat removed and shredded (about 4 cups)
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 12 large flour tortillas (white or whole wheat)

  • Guacamole and sour cream (optional)

Directions:

  1. Stir rice, refried beans, corn and pickled jalapenos together in a large bowl.
  2. Toss chicken with salsa in another bowl.
  3. One at a time, lay a tortilla on the counter. Smear about 1/3 cup bean-rice mixture horizontally across the middle of the tortilla (leaving the edges clear).
  4. Top with about 1/3 cup chicken-salsa mixture. Sprinkle with about 3 tablespoons cheese.
  5. Fold in the sides then roll up the burrito, making sure no filling escapes. Wrap tightly in aluminum foil. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
  6. Freeze until solid. To reheat, remove foil and wrap in a damp paper towel. Cook in the microwave 2 to 3 min or until piping hot.
  7. Serve with guacamole and sour cream if you like.
