I make this usually when money's really tight. If I don't have the Red Beans and Rice, I'll use a box of Spanish Rice and a drained/rinsed can of black beans. To beef it up a little, I'll sometimes throw in a half pound of cooked ground meat, chopped kielbasa or even leftover taco meat. It's always a hit with my husband and kids and it stretches really well. You can make it go even further, fill up your tortilla with chopped tomatoes, shredded lettuce and avocado.

It wasn't bad but can be plain. I did add a lot of veggies and it turned out quite nice.

I made this receipe without any changes, and it was wonderful. I'm currently dieting and looking for variety in my choices, something that's tasty, yet low in calories. This was perfect and will remain a staple even off the diet.

I had a package of red beand and rice that I found in the cabinet, so this is what I made with it. I am trying to make atleast one meal a week without meat and this was perfect for the first one. I didn't have sour cream, but it really needs it. The only thing I did different was added frozen corn to the beans and rice while it was cooking. I will buy the packaged beans and rice so I can make this again! I thought it was weird to add the seasoning to the burrito, but it made it sooo good. I only had two whole wheat flour tortillas so I just stuffed them full. My boyfriend kept asking where the meat was, but when he was done eating he was full! Thanks for the easy recipe.

Very tasty and easy to make. I wrapped up the extras in aluminum foil and put them in the refrigerator to take for lunch this week.

This was DELICIOUS! I used Zataran's black beans and rice instead of the red and it turned out fine. I also added corn to the beans and rice after it was done cooking. The corn added a little crunch. The creole seasoning is so delicious and sour cream added a necessary flavor, as well. I love this recipe.
